Colour/Type ID thread

I'm new here and I'd love to have a sticky thread available where we could post a pic of our betta(s) to find out for sure how their finnage and colours are classified in the hobby.

I know there's already a thread here with examples of different finnage types and colours, but I've just purchased two fish which may or may not conform to those examples. I'm guessing others have been unsure how to classify as well, especially if they've bought from LPS/LFS.

Without further "ado" here are my two fish.

I'm thinking of calling this one "Hot Lips"


This guy may end up being called "Romeo"

Ok so the first one is a marble/camodian SDPK (I think)
The second one is a marble/butterfly Rose/Feathertail (again I think, this might not be correct!)

Still don't know what my guy is coloration wise. PetSmart says he's a Halfmoon Double Tail. I know he's a DT, but is he anything else? His fins are crazy.

Unfortunately on here you will not get any good color information because not many people know proper names or acronyms for types.

First boy is a fancy DeT marble.

Second is a white marble rose tail.

Third is a marble based black with copper DT.

Fancy is a variant of marble.

Uh, not all of us are IBC breeders and that's why we don't know anything. Sorry.
