Morph is just a fancy name people give a fish based off of its coloration. There's no real defined way to name a betta type other than by tail shape.

I would say half moon. I have one solo in my 20 gal. Wat can I put with him? I rescued him from walmart, some kid was spinning his water around. I felt so bad for the guy I've had him for almost a year now!
