    He looks like either a delta or halfmoon. If you can get him to flare it will be easier to tell (try holding up a mirror to the tank to see if he flares at his reflection). A halfmoon's caudal (tail) fin will be a perfect half circle when he flares, if it is less than that he is a delta or super delta.

    Here is a site with good pictures of the different tail types: http://www.theaquariumwiki.com/Betta_splendens_-_variations

    No way to tell without a side shot of him flaring.

    UniqueBettas yes he is a halfmoon! he is my favorite fish, other than one of my first goldfish named Koi Boy. (he is not a koi I just named him that when I was in 2nd grade haha) :;voices :)
