My new betta fish (classification help would be good too)

Here is my new betta fish. I have "him" alone in my 28l (7.5g) tank with heater and small filter.

Just thought I would show him off. Can anyone classify this fish as to what strain of Betta it is.

Thanks all.

Thanks very much for this.

Whilst I have done all I can to provide, run and test my tank, as per usual my lfs didnt have much information.

the head and fin shape are VERY female....if that's a boy, then he'd be the David Bowie of the betta world.

Hah!

The one thing that I will say is that since we have moved her in she has regained a lot of the colour that was lost from the stress. Which is nice.

Thanks for the feedback, I may have some questions in the near future but I am happy to have my little chap in the kitchen and me and the missus like her too.

So the he thats now a she will naturally be staying.

the anal fin looks a little long to be female, but i look at that, and ventrals to be sure, and i cant see the ventrals well very cute though!
