New Betta Owner, Help IDing?

Hi I recently got two betta's, and I need help identifying type and color pattern etc.

One is in a 5g heated, filtered, planted aquarium, and one in a 20g, heated, filtered, aerated, planted aquarium.

I've been researching heavily and reading tons of books on betta's, aquatic plants, tropical fish, and freshwater aquariums. I'm seriously appalled at the pet industry and how uniformed and down right wrong about fish, ( I was told I could put 5 black moors and a school of neon tetra's in a 5 gallon... I knew better but what about an ignorant not so avid aquarist?)
My tanks are Cycled (fishless and with safestart) and the temperatures are 78, ph 7.4 ammonia 0, nitrites 0, nitrates less that 5ppm ( Supposedly good if you have plants and don't want algae...)


Well I'll stop rambling...

Vlad lol
Vladimir is the main one in question, I assumed he was a standard veil-tail, I got him from a small whole in the wall (kinda shady) pet store I found in Cleveland. He was in a big tank by himself swimming so we could make sure he was healthy and he looked... significantly better... than the other bettas in the cups.. I'm worried they weren't even alive...
But, He was and he's is so cute (rather standard but cute).
However he was more expensive than the other bettas and his tail is fatter and more spade like (if you fill in the visual gap with his fin nipping that happened sometime before we got him)
Also a few of the sites I've been to and books i've read make me think he might be delta, or some kind of off delta since they are apparently hard to perfect. (he now has a huge bubblenest right there)


My other boy was an unexpected petco purchase, I've always loved crowntails I'm I'm pretty sure he's just a crowntail, he's really small though, like half the size of Vlad (will he grow) He's SO FIESTY, and flares at my camera, He's got a 20g all to himself and because he was there first and he's aggressive it's sorta ruined my plans for a community tank.... but he was soo beautiful I had to.





Thanks everyone for any help! I'm really hoping to be active here to learn a lot and provide the best life I can for these beautiful fish.

I think Vlad's a veil tail. Delta tails look kind of like a triangle, like a delta :) He could(?) be a spade tail, I cant tell, but I doubt it.

The other guy's a crowntail, yes!

They look great, and very happy.

We hope to see lots and lots of pics and hear many good stories. Welcome!

Very pretty boys, and what great setups! I'm sure your CT loves having all that room to himself!

So I'm still trying to get the hang of tail typing too but I think he looks like a veil tail.
My veil tail, Mr. Mustache, looks like that when he has his tail opened.
