Question Apollo the delta tail or half moon?

So when I picked out my new betta Apollo the cup said Delta Tail but my friend and I believe he may be a half moon...any other confirmations on what he might be?

Looks Delta to me, but I could be wrong.

Super Delta! I don't know for sure, but he's a cool looking guy no matter what he's technically called.

He looks like a super-delta to me.

Halfmoons have 180 degree spreads on their tails, whereas delta and super-deltas do not... deltas are similar to HMs, except their tail spreads don't reach 180 degrees. Super-delltas are closer to HMs, but still don't have that spread.

Get him to flare and look at his caudal (back) fin- if it does reach a full 180 degrees, he's a HM.
