There are more than 70 species of betta. But you're refering to color and tail types.

Veil Tail: The most common tail type. (VT)

Spade Tail: Just about extinct, is common in Veil Tail spawns.

Fan Tail: a tail that spreads out like a fan. (FT)

Delta tail: This has a spread of 90-170 degrees. Anything over 120 degrees is considered a Super Delta. (SD)

Halfmoon: The step up from a Super Delta is the Halfmoon. This means the tail spreads from 180-220 degrees. Anything over 190 degrees is considered a Over Halfmoon (OHM)

Double tail: Double tails are bettas with two sets of ray branching from their tails. Breeders often mix DT (double tail) to ST (single tail) to get better finnage and to not cause more problems DTs have.

Half-Sun: This is one of my favorites. I work with them a lot (seeing how my best strain is one of them). This happens when you mix a halfmoon to crowntail. Then inbreed to have a 180 degree spread and small spikes at the end. I've succesfully put double tail into these :)

Crowntail: Crowntials have fringes on their fins. These are the ray branching, the tail webbing stops but the frays continue so this creates a crowntail.


Wow...I hope that answers some questions since that took a while to write :P
