Talking thoughts on new fish?

Got a new fish over the weekend! He was the liveliest one there, so i got him and took him home. Put him in a 10g tank with a filter and heater :). Feisty little guy, he always gets really angry at one side of the tank around 7 o'clock. He's really fun to watch, he is so fascinated by everything in his tank. This is only my 2nd betta fish and i dont know much about rarity or anything like that, what do you guys think of him?atlas2.jpg

He looks to me like a dragon-scale delta-tail. Very pretty!

Life.

how old do you guys think he is? His body is only an inch long. I couldnt tell if he is a dragon or not, how exactly do you tell? He might also be a delta.. He extends like a halfmoon and the top of his tail over laps with the dorsal fin but it doesnt meet with the anal fin. I have a video of him on my instagram if you guys need to see him flaring. My instagram is Threesails.

Atlas - Dragonscale Halfmoon

You see where his fatter, more metallic scales don't quite cover his head? It's like his scales are armour. That's the dragon thing. :)

I can't comment on the tail - I don't have an instagram. Hopefully someone else can. :)

Life.
