New betta/photoshoot

New betta!

He's incredibly camera shy, so I'll get some better photos later.. can I get a confirmation on color/tail type? He was sold as a halfmoon, but it looks more like a super delta.. though I haven't been able to get a good look at him flaring. He may even be a plakat, at this point I have nooo idea, haha.

More photos;

He's so pretty! He's definitely in my style of betta ^-^ And your other fish are beautiful as well! Love their names. Any ideas for him?

I don't think he's a plakat, but I don't know much about delta or superdeltas... I only have veils and doubles. But I think when he flares if he's less than 180 he's a delta, right at 180 is Halfmoon, and over 180 is super. I think he is considered a butterfly (transparent tips on his fins) and I maybe a mask? Not sure about the mask thing though. Someone more informed would need to confirm that lol

Yeah, I figured he was at least a butterfly.. his dorsal seems a little long for a plakat, but his tail seems a little short for a regular, so I'm confused, haha. xD

He's so, so shy right now, I just got him home last night. I'll probably see if he'll be a little more settled tomorrow for some better pictures. (:

edit; And not sure on a name yet, though it'll probably be styled like the others, haha. xD

Definately not a plakat. His fins are still long by most betta standards. Seems like a butterfly delta. Maybe dragon?

Thanks guys~

The moment I pick the camera up he goes flying across the tank to hide. He's not afraid of my fingers, because I've held them near him against the glass, there's just something about that camera, haha.
