Baby Betta -- Any Idea on the Tail?

So about a month ago I stumbled across the Petco baby bettas (I know I know, but to my surprise, this particular Petco was taking awesome care of their bettas despite of course the tiny containers) and obviously I just had to have one. I happened to be shopping for setup equipment to move my crowntail into a 10 gallon, so I knew I'd have a spare 5 gallon just sitting around.

Voila, baby betta.

She's done really well! Been eating like a little piggy and she's grown a fair bit since I got her, hanging out in a heated 5gal, planted with xmas moss and dwarf hairgrass, filtered with a 2-10gal whisper filter. My question is...

...anybody have any idea what kind she is?

She's NOT a doubletail, just putting that out there, we had a tailbiting incident last week and she mellowed out after I did a water change and some stress coat and added the filter, but not before biting her tail into a perfect V -- it's healing well, as you can see. Only problem I've had so far.



Any ideas?

She looks to maybe be a veiltail or maybe a halfmoon. Picture of her flaring would be helpful but she won't flare necessarily for a little longer. Beautiful pick though. I like her.

I have my fingers crossed secretly for a halfmoon, but she's going to be a pretty little fish regardless because of her coloration.
