Been a fish guy for a long time and never seen a betta quite like that guy...he's very nice! Question: The "Dragon" part of his name...does that come from the distinct markings around the scales or where? Have just recently started appreciating the 'lil buggers and I'm trying to get the lingo down.

In order for them to be a dragon, their scales on the whole body need to be the same color. So for example, her betta's whole body is copper. Most bettas have no or little coloring on their head and the rest of the body is different colors. Here are pictures that I found online to help explain better.

Don't mean to steal the thread...sorry. Ok, got the body color part...now aren't BOTH bettas pictured what are known as "butterfly" because of one color, basically, wrapped around the body color, sort of speak?

try betty splendens! she has some fantastic fish.. That's where my other betta came from (the one in my avatar). And she's in the US.

no autocross.... I get orange cone confusion... mostly back roads that would put a lot of tracks to shame... and some closed road course stuff.
