What do I have?

I bought a betta last weekend, and of course he's the prettiest, most awesome betta in the world to me because I own him! I have had bettas before, but that was back when everybody thought it was OK to keep them in a vase. I know better now, and I've got my new guy in a nice 10-gallon tank with a buddy (Mickey Mouse platy). Now before anyone says anything, I know I need to get rid of those plastic plants so he doesn't hurt his fins, I'm just doing it a little at a time as I can afford live plants.

His name is Helios because he makes me think of a mythical creature. He was the prettiest, happiest betta at the store. Anyway, he was labeled as a crowntail betta but I haven't really seen many that are too similar to him online when I search. So I'm not sure, is he really a crowntail betta or something else? I also wondered if he doesn't look like other crowntail bettas because he's poorly bred or something.
He makes me want a lot more bettas, I will say that. He's so much more fun than other types of fish I've had.

He's beautiful!
And he is a crowntail betta you probably don't see much like him on your searches because of his color

WoW!! What store did you get him from?! I'd say it's next to impossible to find a pure white betta like that at any store...and a crowntail at that! AMAZING 0.0
