What color would you call this?

I'm new to Betta keeping and I've read a few threads on Betta colors but I can't quite decide what this little guy should be classified as. His color has gotten darker on his body in the 3 days that I've had him.(I hope that means he is getting healthier!) Originally he was mostly irridescent silver with a slight purple tint in the light. The Petco cup had him labeled as a Delta tail. Also wondering if that is accurate. Thanks!

Yes, he's a delta tail, and darkening of colors is completely normal. As the fish gets healthier their colors become more intense. I'm unsure what color he is, but he's a pretty little guy!

Thanks! I guess knowing the color doesn't really matter as long as he's healthy. I'm just trying to become more educated.

That sounds so fancy and beautiful! Thank you! He was by far the prettiest boy at Petco when I got him.
