just the angle I'm sure. They are all so alert when I wiggle my fingers over the water.

that can happen with dragons a lot, but my understanding is that it only rarely results in total blindness.

yeah, people see DS bettas with an iridescent scaled-over eye and assume they're blind, when actually it's more like just wearing heavily tinted sunglasses.

I had male bettas for a year and a half before I bought my first female. She's beautiful and I absolutely love her! The funny thing is that she's actually a bright red, she's even a brighter color than some of my boys!

you didn't, spooked me a bit, but now hurt feelings.

I think one of my girls has dragonscaling, but she's not in that picture, and it's only partial. Sadly.

I used to think female bettas were ugly (I guess because pet stores don't usually carry a nice stock) and would probably be boring. I have unfortunately had two females pass away while in my care.

I now own 4 lovely ladies who are going to be "dropped" into a hopefully well structured sorority tank. I have a deep blue (big mamma), an Orange (Princess Daisy), a rainbow (I know that's incorrect but her colors remind me of a rainbow), and a red.

Princess Daisy has no trouble flaring at me. It's so cute. Rainbow is so little still. I will be so excited when I can get a decent picture of them all!!!

I honestly like females more because they're tails don't get stuck in the filters! When I first got my boy, Pigg, they told me he was a girl so that's why I got him- so "her" tail wouldn't get very large. Well I should've known he was a boy right off the bat, but even seven months ago I knew nearly nothing about fish. Next time I get a Betta I'm getting a girl! I love my Pigg, but I've had to make quite a few compromises because of his tail! And just the other day I saw a rainbow coloured female at PetSmart. I almost took her home she was so beautiful, but I sold myself I wouldn't be able to care for her properly and she was so pretty that someone would definitely buy her.
