Thank you!

He really is quite colorful... Orangish head; pale pink body; his tail is light blueish/turquiose, red, little speck of purple with white tips .

Here is a fish I found that looks A LOT like him, it matches his color almost exactly (except Kipp has a bit more colors), and he is also a crowntail :

Here is a veiltail, the ones that are usually in pet stores in the tiny cups.


Here's a halfmoon, these are one of the most popular types of betta from a breeder.


And here is a crowntail, another very popular one among breeders.


They all come in just about every color of the rainbow. =D

At first I couldn't decide which I liked better, HM's or CT's. At first I liked the HM better, and then I decided I like the CT better lol. HM are my second favorite.

When I was buying Kipp he was in the smallest cup of all. All of the other cups were twice the size of his. He just had enough room to turn around, that's why I especially felt sorry for him.
