He is definitely a he because of the ventral fins as for color if I were to venture a guess I would say he is a dragon, but I am not an expert on colors.
Male red dragonscale. Very nice fish!
Thanks! Great! That is what I was hoping

Aw, thanks... I'm not new to fishkeeping, lol, but bettas, yes. The pink EE in my avatar is my first, I got him just before I joined bettafish. A friend talked me into looking at them. I had assumed they were all the old veiltails, when I saw the fish now, well
. I've been studying the stickys on here, the show betta photos and critiques and the care, so I'm learning what to look for. I have a 29g SA tank thats been set up for 10 years, an African Dwarf Cichlid tank set up for 2, and an 8g Nano shrimp tank as well as the 3x divided 10g for the bettas. Who knows what's next, lol..
The petstore is oddly enough, a Petco. A few of the ones here in town are really getting some good stock and caring for them. As a matter of fact, they have such nice ones people are waiting at the store on delivery days. I was lucky to find two as good as these on a Saturday evening.
Thanks again for the responses!
