New Halfmoon betta - Cellophane marble?

I got my first ever betta! In the last week or so I've spent countless hours researching everything to do with them. Then a few days ago when buying betta food and water conditioner I spotted this guy and couldn't resist getting him!
At first I had no idea what his coloring was, just that it looked different from any betta I'd seen before. But after reading up on it he seems to be a cellophane marble, and his spots are turquoise and blue. I can't wait to see how his colors change!

Right now he's in a 10 gallon, filtered tank with a neon tetra, zebra danio, siamese algae eater, and a bamboo shrimp. They actually get along perfectly fine! None of his tankmates have long fins or are aggressive, and they're all quite fast so he never bothers them.

Here are a few pictures, what do you guys think? I'm thinking of naming him Yue, which means "moon" in Chinese, but I'd love any suggestions. :)

Thanks everyone! My roomates are starting to think I'm a bit crazy for obsessing so much over him. :)

I thought he looked like a double tail too, but they charged me the price for a half moon--about $7 more!

Lol, thanks! I'll definitely post some pictures of him when he marbles, I really hope he starts getting more turquoise! It's amazing how much some bettas change over their lifetime.

Very pretty I love DT's. Was he labeled as just a DT or a HMDT. The HMDT's are around $14 where the regular DT's are around $7
