New impulse buy

Went to the pet store to kill some time yesterday while grocery shopping and i came across this guy, saw him and just had to have him. I think he is a Delta, not sure about the colour though, hint of red on the fins as you can see. Moment i saw him, i decided on a name, Tenshin, means angel in Japanese, bit girly for a male but i find it fitting. Put him in a 14 litre tank and he's manged to find quite a few hiding spots already.

Does anyone know what colour he is and if the tail type is right?

Borrowed my friend's camera but cant get a proper focus.







Heres the tank setup, Nibblez (my first betta, a round tail) used to be in here.


And i relocated the tank from my desk which constantly wobbles as i work, to my sturdy TV shelf.


Nibblez currently in the cube on my bed side table, seems to have taken a liking to me, when i put him by the TV shelf, he just keeps trying to swim towards me, hence why he is now next to my bed.

Beautiful! But is the cover over Nibblez's tank air tight?

Gorgeous! I wouldn't be able to walk away from that guy either!

I'm going to say delta tail. Since he has some red on the fins, I guess he will marble a little in the future. He's perfect as is, congrats!

Also Nibblez looks like a veil tail to me?

First off...beautiful fish!!! Might be a HM/VT cross, so I'll go with Delta tail. His outer rays are not strong enough to hold HM. His color is Platinum. The red would be a red wash ((in show, that would be a fault)). I have a blue with red wash, so I got a blue with yellow wash to cross with...HOPING that will get rid of BOTH washes :D

GREAT find!!!

I wouldn't have been able to pass him up either! We get a really good variety of bettas around here, but never any whites!! I agree that he's a delta!!

Thanks! He was just way to beautiful to pass up, but it was a huge debate when i bought him as it as the prices here are nothing like the prices i see you guys get in USA.

The cover on Nibblez's tank isnt air tight, loose fit on the top and a gap in the corner where the heater wire is being run.

Also, is that split in the tail meant to be like that?
