I just purchased my second Betta today. I am ready to learn more about the proper care of these fish, as well as learning more about mine in particular. Here are a few pictures of him below. Please let me know the type and if he has a specific color if you can. He does have some caudal fin damage, but he is so pretty I could't resist! The second picture shows more of the damage. Thank you in advance for your help
The Random Betta at the End is P. Sherman I have had him for over a year.

Reason: Updated Pictures
Your first betta looks like a sold variation meaning he is pure white or clear. He also has a mask meaning his fac is the same color as his body. He is also a elephant ear and a delta or super delta.
So his coloring is a masked solid variation
His fin type for his side fins are elephant ear
Ad for tailtype delta or super delta
Idk for second. It's defiantly a crown tail but need a better pic to say its color. Maybe a bicolor or multicolor
+1 to Jarick. That's a lovely boy you have there! You'll be able to tell if he's a HMPK when he flares... look to see if his caudal fin's spread reaches 180* or not. I'm betting he's HMPK. As for how long his caudal will be, it won't get much longer than it already is, since he's PK.
I disagree that he's pure white, I think he's going to color up on you a bit. I'm pretty sure I see some faint butterfly bands, so I'd be eager to see what he looks like in a week or two once he's been in warm, clean water for a while! Great find, congrats on him!
You all are right I have had him for two days and has already is coloring up. More and more teal with pink butterfly bands i believe! He is great though, The water is at 80+-2 and he is swimming around like a champ. I will update with more pictures soon
