Meet my new questionable? Betta

Hello I just got this little handsome devil "orangey" yesterday. He is living in a one gallon but will be moved to a larger tank in a couple of days. He is such a little piggy! The store labelled him half moon but it's questionable... now I'm thinking he may be a delta....

My second guy "Grillbaby" is also fairly new he is a blue veiltail. He had ich and very clamped find when I first got him. I treated him for the past few days and he looks so much better now and is very active :)

Orangey is an interesting looking guy. Looks like an autumn leaf. I think he's a CT / Delta or HM cross, assuming he's suffered no damage to that tail.

If you bought both at the same place and one was sick, then the other likely has fin damage, but if he looks cool and is eating, you should have plenty of time to see if the fins change or not. I definitely want to see what happens, because if that is a healthy tail, it is very cool, reminds me of congo tetras

Just an update, Looks like Orangey's tail is the same, He has not changed one bit. I think that's what his tail is supposed to look like naturally. When he flares it reaches 180 degrees. I love his coloring. He is super energetic though, he almost leaps from his tank when I feed him lol. I will post an updated photo of him later today!

I got them both from petsmart, but different petsmart stores in my city.

Orangey is a feather tail with tail damage, it'll grow out though. I'm gonna bet super delta.

With tail damage, is there anything I can do to help it grow?

Clean water and feeding him protein, maybe some indian almond leaf. It should be all fixed up in 1-2 months even without help
