Hmmmmmmm definitely double tail..
I can't say if it's halfmoon as well unless his tail makes the full 180 when he's flaring...

To be honest, I've only heard of a half moon duble tail, and a double veil... so I'm assuming yours is a double halfmoon by default

I have a half moon double tail and I must say Aquarius's tail is just overall fuller. When he flares you can tell he is a half moon.
This tail does not look the same as his.

I could try to get Aquarius to flare and snap a photo for you to compare, he's double tail half moon and came from Petco so I am sure they likely came from the same fish mill breeding farms of doom. I'll grab a mirror and my phone, brb
