Question Dragon Scale Hide N Seek

don't know if this is the right place, or not. >.>;

okay, so i have an HMPK Dragon girlie that i raised from a month old fry. she's my baby, Chappy Belle. her parents are two beautiful green/blue HMPK dragons, previously owned by a breeder i know, who got them from someone who was going to breed them a few times, but only had time and room for one spawning. beautiful parents, and i wish my other computer hadn't eaten the photos. >.>;

anyways, Chappy was a gift, because i'd lost my white HMPK boy, Weiss, a bit before i was surprised by Chappy Belle, staring at me from a patch of Java Moss included in a batch of Red Cherry Shrimp i'd bought. i got to watch her grow up, from this:

to this:

that's my most recent pic, and you can clearly see she's a dragon! but, a month or so ago, i noticed her losing her dragon scales! D: they were just..... vanishing! eventually, she was left with a small patch running the length of her back, and one speck on her eye(>.>;). now, suddenly, she's growing them back! :O what the world is going on with my Chappy Belle?! is she a marble? is this normal for young dragons? could i have done something wrong? D: what? does anyone have any idea what's going on with my baby girl?

Probably a mable. I just got male HMPK dragon (it looks a lot like yours) that had dragon scaling, lost it, then got it back!

I only have 1 betta left, but he's a cool blue marble!

Wow she is really pretty! I have two dragons never have they lost scales and regrown them, but every fish is different I guess maybe she is a marble I have never quite seen one that looks like her. Are you going to breed her?

Dobby - HM
Absolem - DeT
Fez - Metallic OHM
Tomato - HM
Thor - HMPK King
Sorrority tank - 1 Det - 3 CT's
Goldfish Tank - 1 Orange Oranda - 1 Calico Fantail - 1 Clown Pleco - 1 Dojo Loach

if i can find her a boyfriend I like, i'd like to. i'm picky about her, though. :d she's my baby. lol i'd love another green dragon, HMPK, of course. she's around the perfect breeding age. she was about a month on the fourth of July last year, so she's almost a year old. O.O they grow up, SO fast! lol
