If a betta is super young when purchased he'll develop to his full potential by 5-6 months of age.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

No, dragons look like they are wearing "armor" almost. Sounds more like a marble to me. They like to change their colors on you. ;)
Someone posted a good link to a bettysplendens article about marbles, i'll take a look for it.


Edit: found it.

I love marbles. If you get any fry from my current spawn I might have some marbles because their uncles have marbling.
