Talking 9? Seriously??!!

Hey guys, as many of you know, I was planning on getting a really adorable male VT from Walmart today. Well, I went to get him and he was gone. I really hope he just got a home.
But while I was there this little guy caught my eye. Instant betta love.lol.
I just had to have him, and since I had already made arrangements to bring the Veil home, I figured "Why not?"
So, here he is, Vito. Number nine in my betta mafia.
His body is blue/green his fins are red at the base then an iridescent pearl color for the end-half. These pictures don't do him justice. He really is very pretty. I wish I could master fish-photography!
I am a little concerned though.... I just noticed this while I was taking the pictures and he flared. His back fin is split in half all the way to his body. What is this? Should he be medicated?? Thanks guys!

LOVE him!!!! I saw a Marble CT at walmart, my goodness, I wanted him!!!! I would at least put him in some salt. It CANNOT hurt. Probably bettafix too.

I thought he might be a double tail, but i have no experience in that. I'd add some salt just to be on the safe side.

It looks like his tail is suposed to be that way but it wouldn't hurt to medicate a little less than if it were definatly turned.
