I've read that story too. MG is trademarked now, but people throw just about everything into that classification now so that's why I mentioned it as MG TYPE. It's just easier to explain that way to me.

Thanks so much to everyone for all the information!

Due to my lack of knowledge on the types, what is a dragonscale and how can you tell it from a standard betta? Is a dragonscale new to the bettas?

Dragonscale is relatively new.. it's basically just a mutation of the scales - originally made for thicker, harder scales for fighting. They are becoming wide spread and popular.. yours is a "full mask" dragonscale meaning it covers his head/face.
Basically, just thicker scales.

Other traits are just the body, or there is a line going from mouth to top of the head void of these scales.. also could have a pattern that seems to be checkered type.

I personally love them in pictures, but not in life as much.. surprising since I have 3 or 4 dragonscales lol.

Here are a few of mine as reference..
