Very nice Trapper! He's just a regular betta. There are a few other types of betta, including those that have been bred for special fin attributes, and then you have your "wild type" bettas that are different species.
I've had both male and female bettas off and on over the last 6 or so years. They are great fish. I wouldn't recommend putting a female in with the male. They are both aggressive and my end up killing one or the other, or simply getting sick from stress. Special precautions have to be taken to successfully raise the offspring. It can be difficult getting them to breed sometimes too.
You can however, keep several females together in a 10 gallon aquarium. The trick is to have plenty of hides. I used those cheap clay flower pots you can get. Some I knocked holes in, some I just turned on their sides. I also had plastic plants and coconut halves for them to hide in.
