The best picture I could get of the little guy flaring

Since I'm still a noob, can anyone tell me if he looks healthy/if his fins look fine/anything else?

If you want a good algae eater for a small tank with a Betta, I recommend getting a Mystery Snail.
My Betta has never attacked my Golden Mystery Snail.

Your Betta look good. His colors are similar to mine.

My tank is a 5 gal hexagon.
Unfortunately I can't post any pictures at the moment. I'm visiting someone in the Mid West for the next two months. My tank is back in Alaska being taken care of by family.
