black with blue tints

There was a fish at Petco tonight that looked black but on closer inspection there were some spots that were ever so slightly blue. He was a double tail and the tail was small.

Is this also called "orchid"?

I might get him tomorrow. Or at least a photo.

Petco has been getting some very nice bettas in. I got a DTHM there that looks velvety black until light hits, then irridescent blue. If the one you saw is from that line, he will be beautiful when you give him a little TLC :D

Three more? And here I was worried that I was fueling your betta addiction. (Because we're ALL addicted to bettas, aren't we? LOL)

I decided to get him because not only was he unique but he has an sore on his gill! Is he an orchid? Also any tips for the sore? I have him in stress coat and plan to do 100% water changes.

The first 2 where he is facing left are his "good" side the rest are various close-ups and angles of his sore. It looks like a red pimple.:
