Did I get Lucky at PetSmart?

Is this a juvenile Plakat? I know its a dragon scale by its shine and pattern. I just want to know if I scored and got a plakat type. He is tiny atm like ~ an inch.

His fins are very small, similar to plakat. I know young males have that short of fins, but usually not as much color (IME).... could you get a picture of him flaring? that'll be the best test :) very pretty though!

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

all the bettas labeled dragonscale that I've seen at petsmart have been PK or HMPK though I know some people have seen DTPK's as well. not all of them have actually been dragons, lol

So could you get your little guy to flare and take a picture? that'll definitely help detemine what he is :)

I can't tell if he's a dragon or not but he looks like a plakat to me. He's very pretty.
