What Kind Am I?

Hi, I've just been brought from the shop with lots of fish, home to my new fishy mommie and friends. I know I am a crown tail but i cant work out my colours. sometimes if i turn around real fast i can see through my fins other times they are a shimmery aqua blue colour. i think it is kind of cool. I have a pale pinkish body with red splatters. My mommie cant think of a name for me either....does anyone have any ideas? Sorry the photos are blurry but im so excited i just cant stay still.
Here i am:







OVER NIGHT ACCOMMODATION:




Ok this lil guy is so tiny, the pet store was replacing Tamina with another female but the very few they had looked too much like the late Tamina so i got another male and paid the difference. so this little guy should have cost me $14.95, but take off the girl price of $11.75 and the difference was $3.20 i did notice his ventrals are not even the right ones tiny compared to the long left one.

ok i need help with naming him
at first i thought some sort of blood name hence being splattered in red lol
but i dunno HELP! lol

He looks like a fourth of july (red, white, and blue) pastel betta. A fourth of july betta itself is a lucky find especially a fourth of july veiltail. My first betta was a fourth of july veiltail.

Um, I dunno about that... I see them all the time actually, I always thought red white and blue were some of the most common colors to find in bettas.

He really is gorgeous, though, maybe he's a marble?

Just a marble crowntail. He'd be called either a light bodied marble or a red/blue/pastel marble.

Red and blue are the most common betta colors. White is a little rarer. But Fourth of July bettas are pretty rare.
