Welcome to the forum!! There are so many knowledgeable people here you will find out so much!
EDIT:: I read that wrong, and realize now it says gimpy, why is he gimpy? haha WOW cant believe I read that so wrong!
Pygmy hah that was pretty funny! He was being sold at PetCo as an elephant ear betta which I had never heard of before (similar to the big ear/dumbo bettas on AquaBid I suppose). He is gimpy because he only has one large pectoral fin. I felt bad for the poor guy and I was surprised that he wasn't culled because of his imperfection. I took him home right away as I already had the 5 gallon set up and cycled.
Here is a not-so-clear picture of him from another angle.
