I'm having some trouble identifying whether my new betta, Zeus is having a fin rot/ripped or is it just his natural pattern for his back tail. Here's an image of Zeus. I just bought him a week ago.
I did put some Indian Almond Leaves
to accelerate his tail growth and do a 100% water change every 2 days. I used only aged tap water (2 days old) combine with anti-chlorine and anti-chloramine.

Other related questions:
1) Is my Betta type known as "Butterfly" rather than "Veil Tail" or a "Super Delta"?
2) If I were to breed Zeus, what color should I get for his partner? Maybe some good pictures or combination of colors would really help. Wanna make his breed look beautiful.
Hope to hear from you all soon. Thanks!
