lol I also found two new pet stores in town XD. Besides Petco and Petsmart. So yeah they all keep bettas in their stores. I found a VERY pretty torquise and blue colored CT. And another royal blue and a few other colors mixed in. I'll go back and take a picture of them next time I'm in there ^.^.

Really? Because in the 4th pic he's definitely a SD and he's not even flaring really.

Anyway, according to this http://www.bettatalk.com/betta_finnage.htm he would be a SD , at least looking at both the pictures is seems that way. (bettatalk.com-yays!)

But how do you take such wonderful pics? Obviously I need to get a better camera than mine or my dad's.

Nah, I'm pretty positive hes a Delta. An SD is just shy of an HM, and hes nowhere near an HM spread.....but, hmm, I'll look into it a bit more.....

Lol, LOTS of practice! xD I've been taking pictures of fish for quite a while now, not to mention I'm an aspiring photographer. ;)
xD A couple tips though....if you can, use manual focus. It takes a while to get used to, but once you do you can take pictures a LOT quicker and a lot clearer. Also, don't be afraid of the flash. Unless it totally freaks out your fish, you can use it :)

Other then that, just sit in front of your fish tank and practice xDD You don't always need some super fancy camera to take good pictures ;)

The link I posted has the tail types and he certainly -looks- like the SD example. But I could be wrong.

Yeah, I love taking pics and manage to get pretty good ones with my $30 camera. But not of fish (well, I can get some pretty good pics). My camera doesn't have a manual setting but my dad's does. I just need to figure out how to increase the shutter speed because all my pictures are turning out blurry. My dad's camera isn't the nicest but it works a lot better than mine!

Taken with mine (they're actually pretty good):

That's really one of the only good ones I've gotten with it (I've only used it a few times)

Sorry to post pictures on your thread XD

EDIT: The last pic was resized/cropped for my avatar and I accidentally saved it that way. I do have another copy...on my dad's camera though. The first pic is resized and the second is cropped.

Yeah, those pics are pretty good. :) I love that one of the female, shes so cute, inspecting the bubbles xD

See if you can snag your dads camera again if you can and play around with the different settings. Eventually you'll find a combination that works well for taking fish pictures.....and then practice xDD Practice is the key. Its a challenge taking good pictures of fish, but once you get the hang of it, its really easy.

And if you can't get your dads cam, play around with yours ;) You don't have to have the most expensive camera to take good pictures. I took this picture a couple years ago with my little beat up point-and-shoot:
