What color/fin type is my betta?



Here is my beautiful betta! He was labeled at the store as a Delta Tail, but I am wondering if he is also Feather or Rose because his tail has some irregularity at the edges? I also have no idea what color he would be described as. He's a really pretty dark grey/slate color that fades out to the end of his fins, which are translucent. Would love to know what to call him! :)

He also, unfortunately, has no name yet :( Suggestions are welcome!!

Can't tell for sure unless he is flaring, but he looks like a Super Delta to me.

The edges of his fins look like they are just growing back from having fin rot or biting. Just keep his water very clean and he'll heal in no time!

He's beautiful!!

Thanks you guys! I got him from Petco a couple months ago so it's very possible that he was ill or is young/still growing (not sure what age they are when they sell them, usually?) I had him in a 1/2gal vase until yesterday so that probably didn't help either. I will try to get a picture of him flaring and see if that is more helpful with identification :)
