Question Need Input: mermaid fins/coloration

Okay, this is not entirely betta related, except the mermaid that is riding my manta ray I want to have betta fins/coloration -- Now, since this is a late choice I've made, her tail fin may have to be done shorter than I'd like, BUT other than VT I can make that work.



Her skin-tone will likely be a green-blue to help her blend-in with her ocean world, but I decided I wanted to make her scales/fins betta-like.

So, male or female patterns and colors and tail-types are welcome suggestions.

Here is the list I'm thinking will work, and I'd like you to post your vote. If I dont list something you think would look great, please post that instead =)

Coloration
- Yellow-Orange (likely pineapple idea)
- Dark royal blue w/ green irid (as butterfly or metallic)
- Marble koi pattern (with blacks and reds and I'm throwing in orange)
- Mustard Gas-type
-Dalamation spots?
- Marble of any other specific type?

Finnage
- Double-Tail HM
- HM
- Rosetail
- CT

These are what I think would work best with her, and despite the already existing paint, that's the joy of acrylic, I can paint over it. So please let me know what you guys think!
