Ghost Update, before and after, and help with fin/color!

Close to 2 months ago I got my very first betta, Ghost. He was so small at the time.

Now hes grown bigger, longer fins, AND hes changed colors quite a bit.

Hes a double tail, and Im guessing a marble? Could he maybe be a half moon double tail?

Is he a marble or is there some other name for his color type..

In the new pictures, its hard to see his full tail, because its color and then they fade into clear. o.o

I cannot get him to flare, Ive never seen him do it.. not once. Ive tried mirrors, is there another method to get him to flare?

He's very pretty! I love him! Do you have any other bettas? If so, try putting them next to his tank. Maybe he's juist smart and knows its a mirror.

No luck with him flaring yet. I think hes just such a sweet boy he doesnt wanna flare for me. =(

Here are some better pictures of his actual color.

The first picture is more of what he looks like. The second picture shows what his "sheen" is. How he looks when the light hits him.

Any ideas on his color? Could he be a HMDT? His tail coloring seems really unusual to me, the way its clear at the ends.. is there a name for this?

He looks like he has enough finnage to be a halfmoon and he is a double tail.

I think as far as his tail coloring, he's got some butterfly genes showing. He has some nice iridescence to him too, but I don't know the official coloring for that. I think there might be a sticky with either color or fin types in one of the first 2 forum sections that might be able to help.

I've looked through that thread. :)

I thought for a butterfly the clear would have to be on the dorsal and anal fins as well? I will admit I dont know a lot about bettas and their coloring though. :P
