My Betta... Is it rare?

I bought a male Betta labeled as Double-Tail Half Moon from Petsmart a while ago. His first home was a 1 gal tank he is now upgraded to a 10 gal. Unfortunately, the flower decorations caused his bottom caudal fin was torn. The flowers were removed right away. So his tank is bare.

Question is, is he really what he was labeled as and is he rare?

Here is pictures of my betta and his new home:

sorry to tell you this but double tails aren't that rare. The betta as my avatar is a double tail

In general they aren't rare but maybe they don't get many in your area? He is a pretty dude though :)

He's not rare, but definitely uncommon in most local pet stores. Some of mine don't carry HM or PK, only VT...never any DT, so I would say he is a rare find for a pet store fish. :)

He's a beauty for sure, and i think he will get even prettier with age and that nice new big tank!

He is not "rare" but he is very very pretty!

I wouldn't say they aren't common in petstores because the petstores in my town have at least 10 at any given time... My stores always have some rare fish though so it could just be my stores...

He's very pretty! I dunno that HMDTs are rare, per se... but they are more expensive. The one I have was pricemarked at about $20, but he was free for me because a friend bought him for me as a gift. ^_^

In the end, whether a fish is rare or not isn't as important as whether we connect with it! My veiltails are every bit as special and gorgeous to me as my fancier tail types. You have a lovely boy there!

Thanks for all the replies. I have settled w/ naming him Jong Kook after a Korean celebrity :D with the help of my friend.

I am debating whether or not to divide the tank and get another betta or get an african dwarf frog or two to accompany my Kookii.
Does anyone have any experience with this?
