Talking Introducing Galahad!

I cannot believe I did this. I stopped into Petco on my way home for a new silk plant for Odysseus. I've been in there once before and was very upset with how they kept their bettas (2 dead ones in some of the most revolting cups I have ever seen. The employees were also less than responsive when I politely pointed this out).

Anyway, today among their very sad looking collection in the usual dirty cups, there was a beautiful blue doubletail. His cup was as filthy as the others, but he was in full finnage and active. I simply couldn't bear to leave him there.

He's got a rather high "forehead" and the tips of his pelvic fins are white. I am not sure what pattern he is -- any ideas?

On closer inspection, I am not completely convinced he is a true doubletail. It's very hard to tell because he's a darker fish, but it looks to me like he may be an OHM with simply a "dimple" in the caudal fin. I will try to get some better pics up today. Again, opinions are very welcome!

He's still beautiful if he isn't a true doubletail, and I love the names of your fish btw :)
