Post Betta fishes at PETCO? Misnamed..

Hello. I was looking around at the stores for accessories and such. Came home and looked up female delta betta. Saw this on Petco site.

http://www.petco.com/product/101070/...ail-Betta.aspx

This doesn't look like a delta, yet for me it looks more like a plakat or WILD TYPE. What do you guys think? Especially the color and body type.

Today at Petsmart, I rescued this little guy. The cup said he is a DT but I doubt it. His tail is once piece, well figuratively speaking

There goes a Hero. I like that he has a dark face and his body has a blue iridescence color to it. lol. I think he might be a Super Delta or perhaps a Halfmoon. I'm not a Betta expert so do take my word; though, it looks like it to me. LOVE IT!!!

OOPS!!! im sorry. HE might not indeed be a Delta or HAlfmoon at all! As I can see from your picture. He is definitely a Double tail. If not then he is mixed with a Double tail! Why? because his dorsal fin is a double tail dorsal fin. His tail looks abit teared. maybe not. BUT Congrats!!!

I was just at Petco and I saw a fish labeled as a female but it was obviously a male plakat.
