Question Bet you can't guess this color...

Hey guys, I just wanted to get some opinions on this half moon double tail I've got...I just can't seem to pin point his actual color. Sometimes he looks completely black, most of the time he has really pretty blue markings on his fins and a few blue scales down his body, but when you take his pic all you see is green iridescence...what color is this guy?

Not the greatest pics on plane earth but the best I've go at the moment:

Multicolor green blue and black? Whatever he is exactly he's absolutely stunning. Did you find him on Aquabid?

Haha, I guess I don't know my fancy betta colors yet! I've seen the lace colors on Aquabid but never in a pic this clear.

Thanx for the replies and for the compliment sakura8,

Would you believe I found this beauty at petco!

I think you are right about him being a green lace copperarabian, he looks a lot like one(just looked up on google images) To be truthful, I didn't now green and blue lace were betta colors...I thought he might be some kinda black lace actually, but I was unsure.(I just can't seem to find a betta that looks anything like him to help me compare) He's just so different from any other betta I had ever seen, I couldn't believe it when I saw him among the normal little crown tails and veils, of course he looked almost grey when I first saw him. He was labeled a halfmoon double tail...his tail is even ruffled up like a rose tail, I wish I could get just one pic that showed off his fins and colors right...

Wow, Jirothebetta! What an amazing find! I would have bet money that this guy was an Aquabid betta. He's stunning.

XD thanks, I think its safe to say I am very proud to have found him, I actually intend to breed him, which is why I really wanted to get his color figured out...

THanks everyone!
