What color is he?

(Apologies if this is posted in the wrong place! Literally just joined, and I'm still trying to figure out where things go! cx )

So! I'm pretty new when it comes to keeping bettas, and just purchased my first three over this past month. I've got myself two pretty little halfmoons, and just got what I believe to be a plakat today (I'll ask about him later, if I can't find what I'm looking for!). Thing is, I'm not quite sure what the color of one of the halfmoons is called. I'm pretty positive that one is a cellophane, but I cannot for the life of me find the other one! I'm hoping that you guys will be able to lend a hand over here, and help me figure out what he is.

Here's a picture of the little guy in question:

I fell absolutely in love with him when I saw him at work, and couldn't resist snatching him up for myself. I just love his colors!

I think it's a dark bicolor with iridescence? The black doesn't look like it goes evenly around all the three unpaired fins so I wouldn't call him a butterfly, though he may carry the genes for it.

My wishlist:
-duckweed- -black and white marble, anything but VT-
-javamoss- -koi marble, anything but VT)
-hatchable brine shrimp eggs-
-indian almond leaves-
-Melano Halfmoon male-
-steel blue or royal blue CT or HM female-

The picture on my screen is not too clear. Is his body color rather red/brown or black? In any case he is what I refer to as a traditional color - dark body with green irrids and red fins.

In terms of genetic name, if his body is black, he would go into the black lace - a multi; black lace with red fins. But if it's more red/brown - I don't know how to categorize him. But he is definitely a mixture of green, black lace and red (at least).
