No she looks like a regular yellow, possibly a Pastel. And she's a HM, for a rose tail their tail needs to be overlapping itself to create a rose look which she does not have. She's just a regular HM with a pretty tail pattern.

EDIT: Oh also for MG, they need to have a blue body, orange fins with blue outlining that, like you see in my avatar.

I'm thinking blue grizzle/yellow bicolor "dragonfly" (basically like a butterfly but with a less wide band). And before someone suggests mustard gas... He is definatly not.

Possibly a variation of the Pineapple effect and yeah no, not a MG lol silly people, but I have been seeing more and more Betta's listed as MG when they have a turquoise body and either a white/yellow tail or a yellow tail with barely any hint of a blue band around it, that's not a MG >< it's just bi-colored then.

...But now people see any betta with a blue, green, or turquoise body and yellow or orange fins and call it a mustard gas. Kinda frustrating, really. A variation of the pineappleing effect would make sense. He is pretty unique IMO.

I completely agree! Even with my boy, I'm pretty sure he's just a green, it's only in some lights though that he turns "green" (although it's not actually green, I hate calling it green! gahhhh, sorry Art major side coming out ><) which isn't a true MG either, just a variation but at least he's got more relation to the guy you posted than MOST of the fish that say "Mustard Gas" on AB now, get's my hopes up every darn time :/

and yes your guy is unique! Did you come up with the Dragonfly term or was that taken? I've never heard it before but it would kind of make sense with the thinner band and all :)

BasementBettas made up the term... It sucks because in shows, fish like that probably wouldn't do well because they would be classed as butterfly's but the ideal butterfly has a 50/50 color split... "Dragonflies" are obviously far from that. I still like them more then true butterflies lol!

I'm going to continue this boys line with a similar colored HMPKEE girl from tmtbetta. Should help me correct his form.

Very interesting, yeah I like the dragonfly color form better as well. They just look so nice :)

That's awesome! Can't wait to see the spawn

I finally got a flare! Ming is not a HM, I don't think he's even a super delta, but here his is in a flare.

He looks like a Super DeT to me! I think it was anything above 160 is a super? Maybe I'm just making that up lol, it seems sort of right I guess. But Ming looks like he's even almost to the 180 mark, I know he's not, but almost there is good enough for a Super DeT.
