What is a dragonscale?

I saw one at the LFS but it didnt look any different. I've tried to find info on them, larger scales, metallic color. Is that the only difference, do you have a picture of a true dragon scale?

see how the white/blue scales look alot thicker, and you can see where they start and end? :d compare that, to a normal betta, and you can easily see the difference. :3




i tried to get six bettas with similar colors, to show you the difference in dragon scaling, and regular scaling in similarly-colored bettas. :3

a dragon betta is basically a betta with really bold colored scales, basically opaque scales on its body.. kinda looks like its been painted with a thick layer of whatever color it is, and doesnt have the shimmery look a normal betta would possibly have. the first 2 pics are dragons, and the 3rd is tamaki, a normal scaled betta, for comparison. :D

I learned about dragons the hard way. Someone uploaded a picture of a super red VT with white dragon scales...

*hits self with brick* I was convinced it had a form of ich....

I didn't know next to crud about betta's back then.

Yep, all Betta colors come in all tail types (= VT's are just really rare to find in dragon form.
