new member with cichlid experiance

Hello everyone,
My name is Nick Spohnholtz, I recently was given a Betta as a gift for my new apartment. It has been years since I raised a fish however I did raise Cichlids (specifically Flowerhorns) for about 3 years. I have noticed a lot of similarities and a few major differences between them.

I have no clue what kind of betta he is except that he is beautiful and has a incredible personality (one most cichlid owners would kill for)

Thank you for the warm welcome and clarification! How would you rate him as far as color, rarity, ect? And anyway to approximate his age?

color....hard to tell, but nice
rarity.........common
age....no real way to tell, but from the length of his fins I would say adult
