As for what type he is, I'm going to say veiltail. It's the most common type sold in stores. I think most of us started out with veiltail bettas. It's much easier to tell when he is flaring his gills. You can get him to do this by holding a mirror up to the glass.

Okay I think I will stick with using a cup so I don't stress him! Thanks!
