Here are more pictures of him. I used flash, so the red color on his fins got lost, but it shows what his tail looks like. (His head is more silvery-blue than it appears in these photos.)

Bubbles and Bettas website says:
"Halfmoons... obtained their name from their beautiful caudal tail, which is the shape of a halfmoon and spreads at a 180 degree angle....

A Delta tail is the right name for any single tailed non-Halfmoon Betta. A non-Halfmoon is when the tail has straight caudal edges just like a Halfmoon, but they don’t reach 180 degrees....

The Super Delta is similar to a Delta Tail, but an improved version of branching. It's amazing caudal fin extends between 120-160 Degrees. "

Well, I didn't want to stress him out more, after his "interesting" last few days. But maybe I'll need to get him to flare so I can take better photos of him. That might be the only way to tell what he is.

PetSmart labeled him as a "Half Moon" though.

Like those of a particular Chocolate DT Betta?

Ok, I'll try to get some better pictures. He's still stressed out and skittish, and I need a better camera, but I'll work on this.

Ok. I guess the only way to determine what they are is to get them to flare and then measure the angle. Based on what I read, I think he's not going to be a full HM, like Petsmart labeled him.... Actually, I'm now wondering if any of the fish they've labeled as halfmoons are truly HMs.
