What is my Betta's tail type and colours?

Hey guys, I bought this little guy at my local Petsmart, I fell in love with his tail and colours, but when I saw his container it said "Halfmoon".... I doubt he's a Halfmoon, he does not look like my other Halfmoon Betta.

Also I am not sure about his colours, he looks blue-greenish to me in real life, and he kind of looks like a dragonscale, is he a dragonscale?

I'll provide a picture and video and you guys will be the judge for it.

Some ppl won't call irid drg as dragons. But yes, he does carry dragon genes - Turquoise or green dragon.

He isn't flaring. I can't tell if he is avyually HM (caudal spreads 180*) or delta (caudal spreads less than 180*)

Color: I'd just label him metallic personally

Tail type: Delta or super delta (I honestly really can't tell the difference between the two)

He has a really weird body, his body turns green when light shines on it, but most of the time he is blue-teal-ish (you can see it in the new pictures that I posted)

He's a delta. Super deltas are like 160-179 degree spreads, Deltas are under 160 degrees I believe. I could have the numbers wrong. Gorgeous fish!

Turquoise may look more blue or more green
Copper may look greenish or purple
Platinum may look pink or blue-ish layer
Turq metallic or turq drgn similar to regular scales may look more blue or green
Lighter blue dragon (genetically steel blue) can look green and sometimes change to turquoise at later age (not marble)

All the above is caused by metallic genes which could reflect different colors in accordance to light angles.
