Gorgeous! But option is correct, definitely a marble, will probably keep those same colors, but not iin the same pattern.

The boy in my profile pic looked completely different when I got him, and now, than what his AB pic looked like because of the marbling.

A lot of my Fire Dragons are piebald or Monkey faced as some call them and they do not have the heavy Dragon scaling on their heads. That too may be a factor in eye coloring. Many sellers have photos with several different angles showing the extent of the Dragon scaling to show how complete the coverage is. I think that's why the eyes can become colored or even scale over. It's too bad the Red arrows on this ones cheek were not on his forehead pointing down. I could sell him as the Avatar Betta! LOL!

Chard, I've been wanting one of these guys from you for a long time!! They are soo interesting!! I'm thinking about having you add one of these guys to my order, but have to see how much money I can come up with first.

An avatar betta would be awesome!

I don't know if that's a genetic defect or not, but if it is there's a darn good reason it's rare since he's surely visually impaired to some extent.
After seeing this I contacted the seller. I explained that was excessive scaling over the eye and not his true eye color. He took the auction down and is donating the fish to a charity auction with as a non breeding pet that is blind. I think we will see better listing from him in the future.

Nice job! I'm glad the seller cared to take him down

The scaling over the eyes....I've noticed it alot with dragon scales. Does this trait only seem to affect dragon scale varieties?

That's great! Hopefully the guy was just misinformed and will try to avoid that trait from now on :)
