Here are a few interesting facts on the veiltail betta fish that might interest you:
- They have long asymmetrical caudal fins that slouch downwards. (If you aren’t sure what a caudal fin is, please refer to my Anatomy Of a Betta Fish page).
- Their tails arch up, then float down, appearing to look like a veil.
- Use to be one of the most popular types of bettas kept in homes, at least until the crowntail and halfmoon started making their appearance.
- Some aquarists say that the veiltail betta fish is more personable that others, which is why it is (or at least was) one of the favorites.
- The VeilTail betta is often referred to as “VT”. (Useful fact if you are looking up information on-line).
- Dominates other types of bettas during the breeding process, so their use is often discouraged when breeding show Bettas.
