Ok so I picked this guy up at Walmart yesterday. He was labled a crowntail but his fins are very odd and unlike any other crowntail I have ever seen. He looks like a doubletail to me but just wanted someone else's opinion on this guy.

Looks like a veiltail with a split in his tail to me, but it's other fins are crowntail-esque. Probably a VT/CT mix

Ide agree with them. Probably VT/CT cross where one of the parents probably contained the DT gene and it came through. One of the best people to ankwser this is maryanne or marko.

This fish is not a double tail. His dorsal base is not wide enough. Also you can see the web of regrowth trying to bind the two halves together again. This was just damage.

He does have some webbing reduction on his dorsal and anal fin, but lacks it on his caudal which is odd. I wouldn't call him a CT, but maybe a combtail or just veiltail.
