If you are meaning his tail type, he is a Crown-Tail. I love his blue.

His colors are beautiful!!

He has a big belly, so don't feed him at all tonight or tomorrow. See of the swelling goes down.

Yes I think that is what I mean anyway? I am unfamiliar with how betta's are identified and/or there different breads.
I love his blue also (His name is Baby Blue, was going to be Big Blue however that is the name of our car haha)

I fed him Brine Shrimp last night because he was bored of his normal food. I put to much in and he devoured it before I had a chance to remove the excess. Ill hold off on his food tonight, thank you!

Really beautiful crowntail betta! Make sure you will not overfeed him from now on, as this can lead to a lot of bad things.

Will do, they are far easier to over feed than cichlids won't happen again

Yes, as far as the common bettas go they're all "betta splendens". From there you have your seemingly endless colors and color patterns (yours would be "royal blue") and then the tail types. Most common are veiltail (VT), crowntail (CT) and more recently halfmoon (HM) and halfmoon plakat (HMPK).

Bettas don't know about portions, my VT Ludendorff snarfed almost an entire algae wafer once- he got so bloated and lethargic I thought he was going to die. I didn't feed him for 3 days straight and then eased him back on a few pellets at a time. There is no "put as much as they will eat in 2 minutes" with bettas bc they will eat everything!! lol

My bettas can finish their daily portion in like three seconds. I would never dare give them two minutes worth of food. o__o

He has nice fins. I like how he has two bright red ventrals. Great contrast.
