They dont have names. Yes, the yellow one has only one eye.

They're beautiful!

thank you :)

Though, I'm worried my red Betta, He went from a solid red to what he looks like in the photo now.
I'm not sure if he's just changing color or he's getting sick.

Don't worry he's got the marbling gene so he's changing color, its not sickness just a genetic fun-time (never know what those marbles will do for color/pattern!). If he was sick he's be losing all the color in his body, the red band on his head/back it a tell that its not sickness. Amusingly I have a betta that looks a bit similar your current shot but he's got the marble gene and is slowly getting more red instead of less.

Its hard to tell tail types for all your boys without clear flare photos to see their tail spread/stretched.

Here is a site with some color/pattern names and descriptions you can look at, doesn't help with tail types though.

Due to photobuckets bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my old photos helpful.
