I have found this color to be very interesting thanks to my Betta and I was wondering if it was Dominant or Recessive and what the likelihood is of passing it on. Gus is about 9 months old, so I most likely will not be able to breed him, but in the future I might want to breed a similar male and I want to figure out a good paring. Gus himself is a Cherry Metallic Veiltail with the metallic showing up as Royal Blue to Aqua.
I am facinated by how his color changes depending on his angle and I think I could sell Bettas in my small town with such colorations. Mind you that most people here aren't fishkeepers like us, so "show quality Bettas" is not something in their vocabulary. At least I could give WalMart a run for its money! Their shelves stay empty because no one else here sells Bettas and they are in pitiful shape because they don't care
