Haha, thanks you guys

Yeah, I've never seen a betta like him before....unless you count his brother who was in the cup next to him, but he had more black and grey then Smore.
The name was actually totally random......a friend and I were talking about marshmallows and chocolate and I was all '....I'll name my betta Smore!' My mom said I should name him Spot or something, but I wanted something a little more unique....

I'm curious, I'd been looking into breeding a little bit out of curiosity(and the hope that one day I could get my pair of CTs to spawn.....I know its difficult and I've been doing my research But I definitely won't rush into it, still in the planning and thinking stage.)and I discovered some things about genetics, markings, and colorings. I've always been fascinated by genetics, so this really caught my attention. However, when I tried to look more into it and possibly a list with pictures of the different colors/traits/markings that are common/desirable/bred for, I found little info. SO, I'm curious, anyone know if Smore has any special traits or markings? Mostly just for curiosities sake and so I'll know if I ever see them again

He looks like he is a Dragon. (Someone correct me if I'm wrong!)

I LOVE him, I might even buy a baby if you bred him. :D

He's beautiful. So lucky to be able to find something other than veils and crowns. Don't get me wrong, i love my betta mafia of veils and crowns. BUt I would LOVE to have a Dealt, or Halfmoon for that matter! Congrats.

Ooooo, I LOVE dragons
Don't think he'd be characterized as a dragon though....the pictures don't really show it, but in reality the top half of his body is white and the bottom is, like, totally clear. I had to put him under a bright light and look very closely to see the scales and make sure they were actually there xD
If I can find the right female, I might end up breeding him....but for now, he's just going to be my desk companion

Thanks I'd ALWAYS wanted an HM....specifically yellow in color, thats my dream betta. I was so excited when I came in to see a bunch labeled as HM as opposed to CTs(which I do love as well though)and Doubles. Though I believe many of those HMs were Deltas, like Smore,....but they're still beauties.
Aww, Betta Mafia! How cute!

Haha, looks like I'll have to go out and buy more locks

I'm trying to get pictures of him fully flared, but hes not working with me He definitely doesn't have the full HM tail.... but, you can't see it on the pictures because that part of him is clear, his tail extends about another quarter of an inch and looks more rounded like an HM.....especially when he flares up. I dunno, maybe he's just a Super Delta?

Thanks xD

Okay, so, I figured out that propping the mirror agents the glass worked better then trying to hold it AND take pictures at the same time.... SO, I got a couple pictures. They're not the best, but at least they show his fins fully extended
