What color/tail type do you think?

Bought this boy last night, any ideas on what color and tail type he will be when he de-stresses? He was marked HM, I suspect DT or Super Delta. He won't flair though, just ran away the one time I showed him a mirror

His fins looked like that when I got him, his cup was probably the dirtiest I've ever gotten a betta in. I put him back in a cup to get the picture, don't worry :) He got a 10 gal hex with a heater and filter.

I think a copper/red Super delta...when he's not so stressed and flares fully you'll have a better idea. The poor little guy...glad he has a good home now =)

Just looked that color up, WOW it looks nice! Can't wait until he colors up :) How long do you think that will take?

They usually adapt very quickly. But if the betta was suffering in the store, it may take longer (adapting). IMO his color has begun to brighten up (in the picture). Copper is my favorite color - they come in various shades and will often show different colors according to light angles.
