Great Find at Work!?! (Mild Pic Spam)

So, I bought a 10g today and all the stuff to go with it. I already have two bettas, and I was considering a third but all the bettas where I work (PetSmart) were typical colors, so I decided against a third until a little while later. Well, today, I'm talking to my boss and I look up and there is, I swear, an IRIDESCENT betta!

I swear he was flaunting to me. He was swimming and flaring and all that jazz and he was changing from like a light pink to a pale yellow. So, he came home with me. Has anyone else ever seen an iridescent looking betta, or am I just calling him some untechnical name for a technical color? The camera does him no justice, but here he is:

It's really possible. I've seen it at work. A couple of our males are females, and one of our regular males is actually a crown tail plakat. Happens all the time.

Cajun - Copper, thanks for telling me the proper color.

Pew - We just got them last month. And, working at PetSmart is okay where I live. I get mad at the betta care. I tested one of the cups last night... But, it's pretty cool otherwise. I love when we get the bettas in. There are usually a lot of pretty ones.
