Got this guy from Petco a few days ago and he was labeled as a Delta but then someone said he looks like he could possibly be a halfmoon. What do you guys think?

He's a super delta. Halfmoon would have to make the full "D" shape.

Yeah he is close, but also his edged are rounded...a true half-moon has an exact "D" shape 180 degrees or more, but Delta's and Super Delta's when bred with Delta and Half-moon females have about a 10-15% chance of producing full half-moon fry.
