This doesn't look like a Plakat...

Hello. I got this Betta recently, the coloration pattern seems to match the Mustard Gas one, but the shop I acquired him from showcased their fish as Halfmoons and Plakats.
Pretty sure this guy isn't a HM, nor a Plakat, seems more like a Delta. Thoughts?

Looks like a Delta, maybe a HM. Nice find though!

Is there a way to differentiate between Deltas/Super deltas/HM Deltas?

HM Deltas do not exist, they are just HM. Their spread is 180 degrees or over.

Super Deltas are between I think 165 degrees and 179 degrees (if I remember correctly)

Deltas are less than 165 degrees I believe, I forget the exact cut offs. If his caudal doesn't quite reach 180 but is close he's super delta, if it hits 180 he's HM, if its nowhere near 180 he's delta.

I'd guess either Super Delta or HM but def not Plakat
