poor pics but could someone critique?

Like I said, they're not good quality, but could someone critique/give me a little feedback on him, the best you can see? He was sold as a Half Moon, Double Tail, Plakat.. I'm not seeing the HM part, he only reaches HM spread when he flares, which has been once since I've owned him, so I wasn't even going to try for a flaring pic. He's red underneath with a light aqua sheen over his whole body and a teal head. I'm mostly interested in his spine curvature. I'm trying to get a hold on what's 'too much' and would/should be culled and what's an acceptable amount. Feedback on his fins would be nice too. I'm trying to learn a lot more about those.

They can't be a half moon and a double tail at the same time I don't think! I see the double tail part... He's very beautiful!

I don't see how either, but that's what his sticker said. He is very pretty. I know everyone says it, but the pictures don't do him justice.

He is a double tail halfmoon plakat. And a gorgeous one at that.

Did you get him from Petco? I just got a betta from there 2 days ago and he looks very similar, and his sticker also claimed he was a halfmoon doubletail plakat. I seriously love your betta's colors, he is gorgeous!

Probably redundant, but yes, he is a halfmoon if he can reach 180 degrees when he flares. Halfmoons don't hold their caudal at 180 degrees all the time, you know. xD (And yes, he can also be a doubletail and a plakat at the same time if he is a halfmoon. Which he is.)

I really like his colour. Especially his different coloured face.

He is a very pretty Betta. I wish he'd hold still for better pics. And I need a new camera
