Veiltail Doubletail?

Hi all,
I went to Petco the other day to return the remains of a rescue who didn't make it and ended up bringing home two other rescues... One's an adorable Cambodian female with red lipstick markings, iridescence, and a nasty case of SBD. The other I hesitate to call a rescue since there doesn't seem to be anything physically wrong with him, but I couldn't leave him there and I plan on adopting him out to a good home. Thing is, he was marked as a HMDT, but his caudal is more pointed and his other fins seem to be longer than average (granted, he's a pet store betta and we all know that they don't exactly breed for form). Does he look veiltail-ish to anyone else?



(My apologies for the not-so-great pictures... I'm in the process of moving out of my dorm and my camera had already been moved home, so these are from my phone)

Oooh, I'm thinking he is a double veiltail! Gosh, haven't seen one of those in a long time! I seriously double he was a Delta or HM just because the clean cut of his fins, he would have been more ragged and torn if he was and it was a case of fin rot. He's gorgeous though! I can't wait to see him all colored up!

Phew, so I'm not going crazy It definitely isn't fin rot or a tear - all his fins are actually in really good condition, despite the less-than-great water conditions in his cup (Ammonia - 0.25ppm, Nitrite - ≥5ppm, Nitrate - 80ppm). I'll see if I can get some better pictures once he settled in
