Dragon scale you mean? Dragon scales have thicker scales, while I believe copper just has an iridescence to the scales

Speaking of copper, my Copper boy just flared at me yay <3 I love seing him go all HM on me <3

Vizja is right. Dragons have really thick scales, sometimes they happen to be shiny, but none of mine are. Metallics (copper, gold, etc) are just full of irid.

I see how it can be confusing -- at petsmart and places they always have really shiny betta's under dragon scales. Half of them arent even dragons, they just have a lot of metallic on them so they want people to pay more.

IN example::
See how on this guy you can see each individual scale looks really thick?

And with ths guy - you can see each scale, but its not as thick, just metallic

ooooh...ok. thanks for answering guys. I understand now. I used to think any betta that has a metallic look or a different color between their scales were dragons. Thanks for helping me understand that thats not how it is. :)
