Yup. He's a Crowntail. I don't know his Color, though. Good thing you rescued him! :) He's a pretty Betta.

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

After a while of feeding him a much better diet than I am sure he was getting at the shop, plus good clean water and space, his coloring will start to brighten a bit.

I've read about bettas at pet stores, that look so dark they are practically black, only to have them turn more of a deep cobalt blue when they are fed properly and actually taken care of. I won't even go into detail about their clamped fins.
