Wow the list is going pretty fast! Oh and Arbiter made a new thread it is betta pixels by AcrimonousArbiter. I think people that are too impatient you should refer them to his/her thread. Sorry not sure lol.

Actually he is what is called a Lyre tail. Beautiful pattern on him as well!

A Lyre tail is when the two "lobes" have a very deep separation that looks to end with either a point (like yours) or in a circular form like the picture below.

Point Ending


Circular Ending


Hope this helps!

Oh thats neat! I didn't even know that existed. So When its a double tail its a more shallow separation? Interesting!
What would his colouring be called? The light band around his tail is more clear rather than white! Is it just referred to as butterfly because of the two colours?

I don't know if I'll be able to get a pixel done tonight, I'm moving back to my dorm so I'll be a bit busy :P

No, it's a double tail. Your fish is called a veil tail double tail, which is just two veils. It's a type of double tail. He's very pretty :)

Yes it is pretty cool! I learned that about a year ago.

To answer your first question: Not exactly. With Lyre tail's their two caudal fins look to have a gap that you can easily see through. With double tail's you will see no gaps. It does differ with the HMDT's and the PKDT's.

Look at these two photos and you will know from a lyre tail and a double tail. It's more of a visual than verbal that it's easier to explain.

This is the lyre tail (obviously):
Veil tail Lyre tail:



HMLT (Halfmoon Lyre Tail)

And the double tail:
HMDT


PKDT


Your Lyre tail would be in the category as A red and Cellophane Butterfly Veil Tail Lyretail. (Remember breeders still call lyre tails double tails. Especially to people that just want to buy.) That "clear" color on him is the Cellophane part.It is referred as a butterfly because of how the two colors separate. Though he is not a "perfect" butterfly, but he is in fact a butterfly.

This is how other "perfect" butterflies and other butterflies that don't have the entire symmetrical divide.
"Perfect"


This is a good example of a "Perfect"




Other:





This one is also good because it is kind of like yours (Cello And red Butterfly)



The definition of a butterfly betta is when a betta has a "rainbow" like pattern in a circular form around the dorsal anal and caudal with two or more colors divided separately.
