Mislabeled at Petco!

Just got a $25 betta male for $8 dollars at Petco! I know this happens pretty often, but still I am very excited. Here he is,

He was so pale when I brought him home, but within minutes of placing him into his 20 gallon he turned this beautiful blue

He has a little damage from sitting in a cup at Petco, but for an elephant ear he appears to have done remarkably well.

Gorgeous! What type do you think he is?
Have you got him to flare yet?
If not, looks as if he's a super delta.

Very good deal! :p

20gallon all to himself?
He must love you !!
Lucky boy, and good on you :) giving him lots of space to move around
and explore.

They had him labeled as just a delta tail, but he is most definitely an elephant ear delta tail. Maybe even a super delta, but I'm not sure how those are defined.

Haven't had him flare yet as he was an impulse buy today (who could let such a gorgeous fish waste away!) and I am letting him get used to his home. Yup, he is all alone in the 20 gallon and is really enjoying patrolling the perimeter, haha!

Yep, definitely an elephant ear!

Are you planning on adding any tankmates?

I think this link defines tail types and colours best :)
So maybe check it out?

And pictures of the tank with the fishy in it plz!!

I love when that happens! I got my girl mislabeled at my LFS, which I didn't expect to happen, though I wasn't disappointed. :) He's pretty.

I will definitely add some tank mates in the future, but nothing right now until I am sure he is in tip top shape.
I can post a picture of him in his tank, but it would be very boring considering it is literally just water, heater, and the little betta. Since this was an impulse buy I had to grab one of my spare 20 gallons and stick him in it for now. Eventually I will have it decorated, I'm thinking of something very simple. Aquarium sand, a large rock, and a piece of driftwood with anubias anchored onto it.
