Can someone de-code these abbreviations for me?

I keep seeing in posts "DT" "VT" and various other abbreviations. Does anyone know what they all stand for? Thanks!

DeT = Delta Tail
SD = Super Delta (almost to halfmoon)
MG = Mustard Gas, a type of coloring, I'm including this because it confused me for the longest time xD

I see DT as Delta Tail and DBT as Double Tail.

Can anyone ID this little guy?

Here are a couple pics of the betta I just bought today (LPS). Anyone know what kind he is?

The cup he came in said double tail, but I don't see the "double"
