This is a betta that I used to have before my son was born, he passed away in '09. I was wondering what color he was. He was also a walmart betta. We named him Ug, because he was UPS brown, and everyone thought he was "pretty ugly". lol
Thanks in advance for help, everyone.

Your boy could possibly described as Mustard Gas which is a much desired colour!!! Though I am not sure on exact guidlines for classifications otherwise I would describe him as a yellow blue bi-colour. Someone involved with showing bettas may be able to give you a more precise classification. I think he is a lovely colour though I used to have one just like him.
His body was a medium brown, and his fins were a duller version of "schoolbus yellow" for lack of a better description. he did have an amazing blue iridescence.
I usually find unusual colors at walmart, a while back we purchased a pineapple female from there. Unfortunately, she passed away when we put a heater on her tank, as soon as the temp stabilized at 78 deg, her gills fuzzed up, and we found her dying the next morning.
Yep, Mustard gas is the type, although that term is trademarked now and shouldn't be used, It's the most common way to describe that type if coloring so that everyone understands.
MG's aren't show able, so show people have no correct term for them that I am aware of other than multi colored?
I'd heard Bi-color is used to describe "mustard gas". I bought him in late early 2008, don't know if the name was trademarked by then, but I know that mustard gasses were just coming out at the time. I just never thought he was, his fins were never really the bright yellow I'd seen online.
Mustard gas has a bright blue body, yellow fins, and a brown/black band on the outside edge of the fins. Your boy was a chocolate: brown body, yellow fins. Not as flashy as some other colors, but still pretty IMO.
