Shinyness doesn't make him a dragon, it is the definition of the fins. Around each fin will be darker and you can individually and definitively see each and every fin.

It doesn't look like it but if you could get more focused pictures it would be easier to tell.

I'm pretty sure dragons are defined by their scales not fins :/

He looks like a platinum bi-color. Definitely not a dragon.

"The unique appearance of this so-called "dragon" betta is characterized by a thick, solid silvery/white metallic layer which almost resembles armor."
"It still is not clear how we should define the true "dragon". In order to answer this much more research has to be done."

I'm pretty sure I have seen Dragon CT's on aquabid before. To honestly say if he is a dragon we would need a better picture that can show us what his scales really look like. =/ I searched high and low seeing if fins had anything to do with it, and nothing came up. Plakat's are more common because they took the wild betta's and bred them to make this color. :)

Do you see the difference between the scales? The scales on the dragon are very thick and have a big metallic sheen to them.

Ahaha, I was kind of scratching my head about that. XD Figured I would say something though. :P


On the other note, I am close to blind so I have to squint to look at the pictures the original poster put up. I say they are too blurry and not high enough quality to say.
