Exclamation New white female! And new tank! And Q's?

Well, a trip to walmart. . . end of story.
I found this white female in a cup. among scattered death cups.
her eyes begged for me to take her. if i didnt, she may have ended up in the wrong hands. I came just to buy some food, and ended up with a tetra glofish 3 gallon tank, and a new female betta. this is my first female.
i know she may color up eventually since she was stressed, but im hoping she stays the way she is. shes all white, with piercing black eyes.
BEAUTIFUL in my opinion :)

here is her tank, ( a little bare, but im getting more decorations tommorow)
white sand, marimo ball, filter, sinking log, and bamboo for now. the marimo moss ball was huge, so i cut it in half, and wrapped together in string so itll grow into a smaller ball. I forgot to add that there is a ghost shrimp in there as well.






and little miss pretty pants :) im thinking of a name, but i cant find one.
any suggestions?



also, her cup said veiltail, but it looks to me like she has a round tail.
any advice clarifying this would help. and a color ID too, sorry for all the questions.

Thank you.
She has to be the most outgoing of all my bettas.
she swims up to the camera when i go to take photos.
im hoping someone will chime in, and help ID her for me.

One of my female VTs has a rounded tail. It's not uncommon. She's very pretty. You should name her Pearl.

Ok. Veiltail it is :D
is she breedable? I mean, is she of quality?
or should i stick to breeding better quality fish?
regardless shes going to be cared for as a pet. but maybe in the future i may breed her.

I wouldn't breed a petstore fish EVER. It's too unpredictable.
