My first betta fishy!

I got a new fish today! It was an early dorm gift from my best friend but I have no idea what type he is or if he is healthy. It is also my first time having a betta fish! I'm actually very worried about him and I'm not sure if he is healthy....
Please give me advice!

Thank you!
M

He's very pretty. :) From what I can see, he looks like a butterfly patterned veiltail. Pics are kinda fuzzy but I don't see anything wrong with him.

Welcome to the forum!

Wow Thank you for answering I'm so glad he looks healthy and I found out what he is now! Yay! I will try posting better pics if I can xD My betta seems to be camera shy so he always runs away!

Hes so pretty:)! the purple and white go well together, hes really cute. He looks healthy. To keep him healthy make sure to do water changes often as from the bowl size u have ammonia will build up quickly. Also that blue plant looks a bit spikey, if u can, try get a live plant or a softer one cause it looks like it myt tear his fins. :) i just got my betta on Friday its so exciting:D :D:) :) :)

You can do the pantyhose or toilet paper test. Just run pantyhose or toilet paper over it and if it rips that than it'll rip your fishes fins. Good luck and watch out, bettas are like potato chips, you can never have just one!hehe :P

He is exactly like the one I seen a Wal-Mart and wanted to bring home last Thursday!!!!!! DH told me on Saturday to go buy a whole new tank with all the trimmings so I went back to Wal-Mart thinking to buy the fish that I had seen. Didn't see that one so came home with Jack! LOVE Him! Anyway.....Beautiful fishy!!
