What is the name of the "golden painted" coloration?

Is there an official name for the coloration that is kinda a base of pale cream body, but then
some scales look like the ends were dipped in gold? And the very edges of the fins are black.
It looks wicked cool!
Just wondering what to ask breeders for or search on aquabid, etc.
Thanks!

Well could you explain a little better? It kind of sounds like a marbled betta or a Butterfly? but do you have pictures of what you mean?

When you said pale cream colored body i instantly though of a Cambodian Butterfly!!

but i will need to see pictures to have a sure identification!!

Actually, that looks more like a chocolate with iridescence.

Hmmm I'd say gold dragon. BTW Chocolate isn't a color type...it's Faith's name for the color and her strain.

Also it isnt a dragon because it doesnt have a dragon heavily scaled mask. it is a copper iridescent.
