wow, he is beautiful! He looks almost like a dragon, but his scales aren't quite there, I don't know, but I think if you add some Indian almond leaves to his water (they'll stain the water brown), the tannins will help with his scale thickness and color.

Oh, and I love your tank :D

Oh yay! Someone with scale advice!

He actually IS a dragon (a cull pet store dragon, but a dragon none the less). However after a really bad ammonia spike about a month back his scales just thinned out :( I've been trying to get them back to that thickness they used to have, so I'll definitely try the leaves. Where can you buy Indian almond leaves?

Here he is when I got him, thick scales and all-

You could buy them from ebay if you look up betta fish, i think aquabid.com, and maybe if you ask around nicely, I'm sure someone from here would be willing to mail you some leaves. :)
