Question on Color?

I bought a betta about a week ago and have been scouring the internet to try and figure out what color he is. He is a double tail half moon from PetCo, but there are so many varieties that look like him, I can't figure out which one he is! It doesn't help that his color is constantly changing with the light. Here is a picture of him in some different kinds of lighting:

(Top left is lit from above/front, bottom left is backlit, bottom right is with a camera flash)


Here are some similar looking colorations I've found so far:

Cellophane Marble


Cellophane Green Pastel


Pastel Grizzled


Blue Cambodian Butterfly


Green Cambodian



I'd appreciate any kind of help in figuring out what color this guy is! Plus, I'm a little confused in general in what the difference between Pastel, Cambodian, and Cellophane is. Thanks again for any help!

All of the above are marbles... breeders just use fancy names to explain different patterns but they all carry the gene.
A pastel is a solid light colored betta
A cambodian will have all fins one color and a light colored body
A cellophane is a betta with no color

Thank you so much! That clears up so much confusion, so would he be a cellophane-type marble then? He's fairly transparent, but he still has turquoise speckles so I'm not sure if it's enough to be considered cellophane?

Id say Cellophane Marble. He looks just like my boy Loki in a way. I have been told numerous times he is that color :)
He is also a DTHM :)

Wow, they look like siblings! That's really cool that your Loki is even a DTHM, he's very beautiful. :)

Thanks everyone for clearing up my confusion over Yue's color! I also have another question: are Cellophane Marbles good to breed? I've read that they are "unstable" and produce a lot of albinos, but I've also read that you could get a butterfly?

You cannot have a cellophane marble. Its a contradiction.
