So I have a total of 4 bettas (3 males 1 female)
I'm confused on what color type they are

1. This is my Halfmoon "Gerard" (aka Gee)

It is
I just wanted to find out, since people call bettas, marbled, gas mustard, Cambodian, etc

#3 actually looks cambodian in the picture, cambodian males are reasonably rare. Cambodians have colorless (flesh) bodies and solid colored fins. In the strictest sense his fins are not solidly solid but I would say close enough to earn the name, but of course unshowable in the category. None of the rest would fall under any special category. In the one picture #2 looks like he is reaching the 180 degrees for a halfmoon rather than just SD, but it isn't entirely clear. They are all pretty.

I think he's a cambodian-based orange. The body has too much orange tint (at least on my screen) for me to call him a cambodian.

He's actually not orange at all. It's just the lighting
Those pics were yesterday, and there are some changes on him
He is covered in white scales now, but you can still see the fleshy-peach color. So he's a Tri color dragonscale Cambodian?




For now, I'll call #2 a turquoise
Any thoughts on #1 and #4?

Well if he's picked up other colored scales you can throw the Cambodian name out the window, it requires being totally without pigment on the body.

K
His fins are turning a more reddish color than orange now, but he still has the very light blue streaks on his fins




I find it weird that you see Cambodian females all the time, but not males
