New Doubletail... help with color!

I am sooo excited right now! I have been searching for a white betta to put into my new Japanese Garden themed 5 gallon, and I found one today at Petsmart! I am curious, though, what you all would name his color? He seems like he might have a tiny bit of marbling on him, and he has a pretty little red spot on his head and another on his left side, just above his gills. His fins have a faint green shimmer to them in the right light. Overall, though, he looks pretty much white to me! Does anyone have any insight on what I might label his color?

Introducing Zen!

He's most likely a pastel if he has green irridescence. He has the same colours as my petsmart HM boy, Nougat. Hmmm .... spawn brothers maybe ^_^

He's a beauty, whatever he is!

Here's Nougat for comparision:

he's a pastel pink with a very small amount of red marbling and green iridescence.

Oh my goodness, fleetfish, Nougat is GORGEOUS! Haha I don't know if they're related... but we can say they are! LOL

Thanks for the compliment, I think he's beautiful, too! I'm so excited to get him into his new home. He's MUCH bigger than my little Drago, and it kills me to see him in his tiny little cup. As you can see in the pics, he practically takes up the whole diameter of his cup!

homegrown terror - thanks for the insight! I guess I didn't think of him as pink, but that's pretty cool! I wonder if he'll color up at all now that I'm going to put him in a nice big home with properly conditioned water, heat, and good food! Such a pretty boy~

He'll fit perfectly in your theme with that Japanese flag on his back.

Thanks xShainax! I'm really excited to have him~

I got him in his tank, and he's darting all over the place exploring. As soon as he settles a little bit, I'll get a few pictures of him in there to show you guys. He LOVES it! His body definitely looks more pink/peach under the tank light. And the green iridescence really shows on his fins!
