Talking New Fishes. o: Help?

Sooo after a day of running around for multiple aquarium shops I finally found a lovely little fishie. ^^
However, I'm not really sure of the gender or type. The man I asked at the store said DT, but It doesn't look like one...Is it a female, or a young male? :P I'm still pretty new to this, so I'm still learning all the variations.

(His pics are the first ones.)

After I picked that guy out, I went up to the cash-register to pay. Right as I'm doing so, I notice a little bowl with another betta in it. Really it was his size that caught my eye, but he also had some interesting coloration; nothing like the ones in the fish room. I knew I wanted him, but bit my tongue. It wasn't till after my first was all paid for did I finally give in and ask if he was for sale. Of course he was, the little setup for only 20$. >> Let's just say I got sloshed on a lot coming home! (He is pictured in the third pic.)

Also, I have a question. I'm wanting to breed a pair this summer, would any of these be decent? (Any of the three pictured.)

I like all of them, but I'm not sure how to spot a breedable fish. :) I think the first and second ones are gorgeous.

First I really think is a female. As for fin type I am not that strong in spotting it in females but I think VT... the last male is GORGEOUS.

I think the first one is a Plakat and I would say male. Second is a delta.

The first is a PK male according to his ventrals and body shape. ;) Could be fooling us, though.
