Well he's obviously some type of double tail, but I'm new at this as well so I can't say anything more than that. Very beautiful!

Three tails? As far as I know there aren't any bettas with three tails. Is there a picture where I could get a better look at that? It might be a split, which is not good (not to worry you, I just want to make sure what it is).

I would guess he's a turquoise DT with red wash? Mr.Vampire would know best :)

Also he appears to be bottom-sitting in every single photo? Is there a heater for him? Usually they bottom sit if they're cold :D

tri-tails are an extremely rare variation of doubletails. i've only HEARD about them, they're that rare. it'd doubtful that anything you get from a pet store would be a tri-tail. x:

it sounds more like a split that hasn't healed. :V

Triple (is it 1 p or 2?) tail betta exist but they are rare. It's a deformity of the double tail. Here's a photo of a great one, usually they aren't so even;

However, the roughness along the edges of your guys fins make it seem like it's damaged, hopefully with good care it should start growing back soon. :)

~just saw the photo, are you sure that isn't the dorsal or anal fin, with just 2 tails?

From that picture, the upper tail looks split, but it is still hard to see. Is that what he looked like when you got him? If not, do you have sharp decorations? How big is your tank and as bahamut285 said do you have a heater?

And thanks for that picture, I had no idea they existed!
