Please help me ID Betas

I am trying to ID 2 Bettas

I dont know much about different Betta types, the only ones that I can pick out are Crown Tails because they are obvious. Anyway in the link there's a video to both of them. Thanks

Veil tails. I have to ask as your orange male looks a little rough are those the containers they live in? and do they have heaters? His tail is pretty ripped and needs some care.

The red fish on the right with the plants in it, that's his permanent home.

on the left with the spots, i put him in there for the purpose of taking the picture

Water temperature is 78 F

I've had both of them for the same amount of time, about 2 weeks now. He came with a rip in his tail but now it has an extra rip.

How would I go about caring for it besides feeding it properly and keeping water temperature at right levels

I had a betta that had some ripped fins I just did extra water changes and used stress coat +. It worked great!

And okay! Both are beautiful by the way!

Definitely veiltails.

I really think that is much too small of a tank to be kept in permanently though. You'll have to be extremely diligent to keep it clean.

They're both veiltails for sure. That tank is so small, though, you'll have to do at least a half water change every other day to keep all the ammonia out or your fish will get sick.
