He doesn't have her listed as a dragon. Even if she isn't I would bet she has the gene in her. Someone else here who is a little more experienced with dragons could answer you better then me.

Dragonscale refers to a thick coat of iridescence on the bettas scales making them appear thicker then normal. She looks like she has thick scales but I am by no means a expert on the subject. I am sure there is more to it then just that to determine if it's a true Dragonscale.

I don't see dragonscale on her, as usually dragonscale is thicker scales of a different color on the body, face and sometimes partially on the dorsal (as mine has). However she could have the gene. You may get metallic or iridescence :)

She is not dragon nor metallic. She has regular color. Not sure what to call her - she looks purple
