the white edge may get her kicked to the BF class instead of the bicolor. Even if you are still in NB class, they will evaluate her based probably on the BF standard.. and without the 50/50 split.. may not be competitive.

Basement Bettas would have to elaborate, I don't think it's an official pattern yet, here is a video of some.

Dragonfly is a tongue in cheek response to the BF type pattern that is not a 50/50 split. A good and competitive BF fish will have as close to the 50/50 split as possible and clean separation between the colors. the current judging issue is any with with a white or actually.. any colored band that appears on all three fins is automatically moved to t he BF class and so is not competitive. Most of todays salamanders will also fit this pattern. SO I came up with the dragonfly moniker as it is close to butterfly like the patterns are similar. It may be time to present this variation as another class so the Sallies, blue with white, fish like the one here and even many MG's have a good place to be evalutated.
