Rescued from awful petshop - Help with ID, please

I found this little guy at my local pet shop, he was in a small 1 litre tank hiding from a crown tail (I was so annoyed with the shopkeeper, who was saying to me "They're fighting fish, they're bred to fight, and don't need lots of water so don't need a big tank! Besides these two don't fight!"

The little guy looked so scared, I had to take him home.

I named my red male - Elmo. He's such a curious, and friendly fish, complete contrast to Oscar (my last betta!) Elmo wants to say hello everytime I see him. I've always heard about bettas having individual personalities, but I didn't realise how true it was!

Just wondering, what type he is? I'm a betta novice, so wasn't really sure, as he doesn't have the long fins of the veil tail at the bottom of his stomach.
