What Type Of Crowntail???

I was doing my usual business here. Answer all I can that I think is right in the Unanswered Section. And of course other stuff, but I'm getting off topic.
I have taken interest in Crowntail Betta Fish for some reason. Oh, and not because of owning one, but because of their finnage. I know some people think Half-Moons & Plakats, and Giants are the best. But I like Crowntails. They are not my favorite, but just curious. I have heard of Normal Crowntails, Double Ray, Double Double Ray, and so forth. I was just wondering if my fish is Normal or a Ray. Here's a Picture of him.



Do you see his Tail Fin? There are like 2 spikes on a few. I'm just wondering if this a Normal Crowntail or something else. Thanks!!! ;)
I have also seen other Betta's fins like this. I was just wondering on it's type of form.

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

I'm not good at this stuff but my guess is a ray. :P

Torch - (Technically sister's) - Male HM multicolor
Zane - Male DBHM White/blue-green marble
Regina - Female Delta Purple/red grizzle multicolor
Holding a grudge is like swallowing poison and expecting the other person to die.
RIP Nightmare!

What's a ray? That's not a term I'm familiar with.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

a "ray" is "webbings" there are singles, doubles, and multi's. before the webbings spread out like spikes, there combined, most of the time it is two rays, some times more. sorry am horrible at explaining things

Oh, so that's the proper term...

I know what rays on a CT are. I was unsure what the OP meant by regular or ray.

Also your definition is extremely flawed.

Rays refer to the branching itself. Two rays up to I believe sixteen. Rays are in all betta forms since that's how the fins are supported.

CTs have reduced webbing. Anything under 33% reduction is considered a combtail. 33% or over reduction is a CT.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.
