Decided to make a species they're so cute okay
Basically they're aquatic dog things. With fish tails and fins.
They're always a color with white markings, their tails are always two colors with white dots, but only the females have the little "bows" on the chest, males just have the little gems.
The egg is their fin color, but really pale. The secondary fin color is also visible. As time goes on, that color will fade into the hatchling's skin color and then the embryo starts to develop.
Born blind, their fins still a paler color than what they would be, and with only one white marking. As they grow their marking will spread to their paws and underbelly.
They gain more dots in their tail as it begins to saturate in color. Their bow is almost finished growing, and their ears get bigger. They now have white markings on their front paws.
Their white markings have fully spread and have been surrounded by stripes a darker color than their skin color. Their tails, ears, and bow are fully saturated. The average height they would be is about two feet at the shoulder. Males only have the gem, though they have spiky fins at the sides of their head. Sometimes females will have a gem on their forehead, a signal they have some sort of special power...
This is NOT an open species. Only I am allowed to create Bettails, and if =xSabinaxx wishes to, she may, since it was her adoptable that inspired this species.
