Smile My new Double-Tailed Betta

I'm actually looking for a Half-moon betta in a fish farm. But almost all of them are Delta tails and crown tails. Then I saw a double tailed betta for the first time. It looks nice, so I got him home on 23 October. He seems very young about 4cm-5cm in length. Wonder what to name him.

Here are pictures of him,

Well this is my Russet, he always swim up to me whenever I go in my room. But the problem is, he's got a lump on one side of him! It always hurts me whenever he swims up to me eagerly with the lump on him. Gosh, I really wish I knew what it was! Russet also had a little fin rot before thats why the fins are like bitten away.

This is the tank they live in, Russet lives in a 1.6 Gallon tank. My double-tail lives in a smaller tank, not sure how many gallons. Both tanks have Indian-Almond leaves in it.

I'm sorry if any pictures offended any viewers*.
I don't really know if Russet is a Half-Moon or a Super-Delta tail. His tail span is like 170 degrees.
Is there any tips on keeping a Double-Tailed betta?

VERY nice bettas!! The only tip I have on doubletails, is that you have to feed them a little less than others because they bloat easily. So if you feed your other one three or four just give him two. It also helps to fast your bettas once a week to prevant bloating.

Thank you! :)
They bloat easily? Hmm I also heard that they will get swim-bladder disorder easily too.

Thank you.
Well I've seen people puting their Bettas into 2.5 galloon-5 galloon tanks. I thought my tanks are too small, so it may offend them.

I have a question. For Double tailed Bettas there are, veil doubletail, round doubletail, crown doubletail, plakat doubletail, and Half-Moon doubletail.
Which category does my double tail fall under?

Experts determine.

Not positive, (I'm not great with tail types) but he looks like halfmoon, or round. (Not sure what a round looks like, but his tail's round so... :D )

You're tanks look great. If anyone gets offended, that's their problem.
