I think the regulars I am referring to are veil tails. I wasn't sure because at all the big box stores, they are simply labeled male betta and crowntail betta.
I have good news though. I hit the betta jackpot at petco today. They must have just gotten a shipment as they had at least 100 bettas. All kinds, labeled properly. Even baby bettas! I got an elephant ear betta. I chose him because he was the only white one and the only white I have ever seen in real life.
Here he is in his new home
Thinking about going back tomorrow for another betta. They had a lot of gorgeous half moons and one plaket with beautiful blue and yellow markings.
