dont know what kind of betta i have

i just bought my new betta a few weeks ago and i have no clue what kind he is... first he has a black head, royal blue body and fins, metallic green shimmer on his whole body and some faint maroon streaks. he kinda looks like a veil tail but his top fin is skinny and his back fin is the biggest and longest one, but his fins arent really that long. Kinda short actually. Can anyone help. Ive tried to get a pic but he is too fast and dances around too much. so i attached the best one i could get but you cant see his metallic green...

looks like my Cup. :3 don't be shocked if his fins grow to be HUGE. .___o i swear, whatever breeder produces these VTs, has some amazing fins in their green/black/blue/red/white VTs.
