Smile new half moon

I got a new fish from petco yesterday, i wanst planning to buy a betta but i saw him and he looks badass... also can u guys tell me if hes a dragon betta or not, i have no idea how to tell the difference.









as you guys can see he's still shy and is always trying to hide from me. I'll post new pics as soon as he starts flaring and gets more active.

Hmm , no. He's not a dragon. You can tell by the red on the top and some in the scales. Dragons will usually have only one solid base color.

Oh and dragons have scales on their face. I'll show you an example. This is my Delta dragon Mercury. With his coloring you can really tell. Welcome to the forum! :)

Thanks Bettakeeper! His fin type is Halfmoon like the cup said. There are many fin types of bettas; Veiltails, Crowntails, Deltas etc. There's a thread in the betta care section I think, about the different fin types and colors.
