So, this is my very first betta, and I just got him this past weekend. We call him Rowdy. I made a mistake and had a rock in the tank that tore his fins up a bit so that's what's going on there :( I took out the rock right away and changed the water/cleaned the tank, and am now keeping an eye on the injuries. Hopefully he'll heal up quickly.
The fish store had him labeled as a halfmoon, but after reading up on tail shapes and seeing some feedback on other pictures, I'm thinking he might be closer to a delta or super delta. What do you guys think?

He looks like an SD but I'd have to see him fully flared to be sure. There's a chance he could be a HM. He's cute. :)

Thanks :3

I was having the darnedest time getting him to flare for me more than that yesterday. I'll keep trying though :)

He's gorgeous; I agree he looks like Super Delta. However, it is possible he's a young halfmoon and could grow a bit, depending on how old the Bettas they get in are.

It's a bit out of focus, but here he is in all his guard-betta glory :D

I'm not sure how old their betta are. I don't remember seeing him at the store for more than a couple weeks when I got him, but that doesn't really tell me anything. Size-wise his body is about an inch and a half long, maybe a bit less. So he could be full-grown, could not be. Guess I'll get to find out :)
