You would have to post apicture for someone to tell you~ There is no 'regular' betta. Just...more common. So I'm already guessing it could be a CT (Crown Tail) or VT (Veil Tail)

Lilyth... you and me both. I am reminded of the scene from Undercover Brother with the parachute bell bottoms.

Haha, they really do...

As for the "normal DT" question: I'm guessing that means a double veil tail.

And as for what tail type a "Male Betta" from PetSmart is: PetSmart gets their VTs in the cups labeled "Male Betta" -- so unless a fish has the wrong lid for whatever reason, odds are any Betta coming from there simply labeled as a male is a veil. I know, at my store at least, the same applies to the females: they all seem to be veils.

The labeling is pretty accurate except when it comes to dragonscales: for whatever reason at PetSmart that more means that the fish is a plakat because not all of them are dragons, and not all of the dragons are labeled as such (i.e. HM/DeT dragons are labeled as Halfmoons).
