Butterfly and super delta betta

I'm still kind of a newbie when it comes to bettas. I've figured out what a crown tail, a half moon and a veil tail are, but I'm still a little lost on what exactly the definition of a butterfly and a super delta betta are. Can anyone help me?

Thanks!

Butterfly is a pattern. The Betta is a solid color and then around 2/3 of the fins are clearish white. A super delta is almost a HM but not a full 180*.

Can someone also tell me the difference between a super delta and a delta? I was always confused with that.

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

If you look in my albums, Féileacán is my butterfly veiltail. He's got a red body, and his fins are red with white. He's not a perfect butterfly, but that pattern is considered a butterfly (though very sloppy).

Super Deltas I believe are the closest you can get to being a halfmoon without it actually being a halfmoon. Deltas in general are anything under 180 degrees, I believe. I don't know the exact difference between Super and regular Deltas, other than maybe the degree of spread. No idea where the cutoff is.

Isn't that the same thing? :S Oh, well. I need to go to sleep now... Ugh. Maybe SDeTs just have sharp caudels then.

I think there's a degree of spread cutoff, but like I said, I have no idea XD anything under X degrees is Delta, anything between 180 and X degrees is Super Delta? *shrug*

In order by measure of degrees of caudal spread is Delta< Super Delta<Half Moon. Delta is a fish with a caudal tail with straight edges etc. with a caudal spread under 130, I think, SD is from 130 to 179 degrees, and halfmoon is 180 degrees.

Here is my Super Delta with butterfly.
His caudal fins don't have the full 180 degrees flare, but is rather a few less. Also, the butterfly is the white around him,



So, I'd say a delta is a lot less than a Super, probably I'd say they're maybe at a 100 degree, and a supr is anywhere from there to 179.

And halfmoons are 180, Over halfmoons are more.

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops
