What do I have?

I bought a betta last weekend, and of course he's the prettiest, most awesome betta in the world to me because I own him! I have had bettas before, but that was back when everybody thought it was OK to keep them in a vase. I know better now, and I've got my new guy in a nice 10-gallon tank with a buddy (Mickey Mouse platy). Now before anyone says anything, I know I need to get rid of those plastic plants so he doesn't hurt his fins, I'm just doing it a little at a time as I can afford live plants.

His name is Helios because he makes me think of a mythical creature. He was the prettiest, happiest betta at the store. Anyway, he was labeled as a crowntail betta but I haven't really seen many that are too similar to him online when I search. So I'm not sure, is he really a crowntail betta or something else? I also wondered if he doesn't look like other crowntail bettas because he's poorly bred or something.
He makes me want a lot more bettas, I will say that. He's so much more fun than other types of fish I've had.

He's beautiful!
And he is a crowntail betta you probably don't see much like him on your searches because of his color
