question about tail type

I have a female betta who has a very round tail. I've never seen a tail so round on a female before. I don't mean that it's round when she flares- she's not a HM- I mean when she's just swimming around normally it's round. Usually VT's have some sort of angle on their tails. My other female bettas are VT's, and crowntails. One seems like a spade tail, but someone here told me she's not a true spade tail. I have another VT whose tail is also close to a spade tail. But this one girl I got from Petsmart in a cup marked "female betta" and she has this super round tail. Is it just another version of VT?

It's hard to get pictures of her because she's so fast, but I'll try to get some later!

Here's the best pic I could get where her tail is totally visible. She has some clear fin growth at the end of her tail which adds to the roundness. it might not be too visible in this pic.
She's the orange one on top. Is her coloring considered Cambodian?

She seems to be a beautiful roundtail. :D She reminds me of mangos. lol Is that her full tail spread? If her body is just pale, almost colorless; I guess a cambodian. But she might be a bi-color.

Thanks! And yeah, that's her full spread. Her body is like a lighter shade of her color of her fins. it's a little lighter than in this picture but it's definitely not almost white.
I got a better picture of her with my actual camera (I took this one with my phone) but I haven't loaded the pics on my computer yet. I'll post it tomorrow! The rays on her tail are iridescent blue. it's so cool.
