I'm sorry! But he's not a dragon.

I'm not sure if this is true for all dragons, but all the dragon bettas I've seen are MUCH more silver than that. Much more.


But I agree with Neelie! He doesn't have to be because he's very pretty!

its easy to tell a dragon from a non-dragon...
- scales have to be very thick, nearly look embossed
- dragons normally dont have a black face, it usually has body color
- they are very shiny but thats not the deciding factor
- their scales look like armour plates

Dragons don't have to be white, you can find dragons in almost any color nowadays. What really defines a dragon are the things Neelie posted.

He has to be masked... your fish's head is a different color than his body which means he doesn't have masking.

He has to have thick scales. I can tell from your picture he has normal scales.

He has to have heavy iridescence... he has that but then again so do many fish.

Wow this is embarrassing!!!

Also then what is he?

I only picked him out because i thought he was a dragon because of the florescent lights they had that made his scales look so shiny and full.

Any name suggestions?

IMO he's a red bi-color or possibly a cambodian.
