Whaddaya know, he doesn't look like a VT anymore :) I think he's either a delta or a super-delta.

He's looking much better! Is it possible to get a picture of him from the side? That way we could confirm if he's a dragon or not.

I'm in the process of setting him up with some new gravel I picked black to some off his coloring he's still a bit pale as he was a lovely lavender in the shop and right now he's a pale Pinky/peach ill have a new pic of him in about ten minutes he's also VERY small compared to my other boys so he might be quite young still Ide say my other boys are probably a good two inchs in just body length and he's maybe one inch

The lfs I got him from price there betta rather high but I've seen some awesome betta there and they seem knowledgeable...there half-moons sell at 12 dollars which is comparable to Petco price seeing as how Petco betta can get up to 17.99

that pic of him looking at the cam, makes him look like a possible dragon. it's almost like, he's got a stripe of darker color going from his 'nose' to his dorsal, which is common in dragons. xD

It could look like he has some dragoning in the front, but the back I'm not so sure of. It's hard to tell.

Either way, he's a lovely shade of orange, and he's looking much better!

Pink, sorry. XD He looks orange in those pics.

Yes, I *think* the dragon pattern shows up more with age- but rather subtly. And unless he's very small, he doesn't look that young to me- just skinny and malnourished. If he didn't have any fin damage, his fins would be lovely and big.

Unless he has ANY thick, shimmery, white scaling anywhere else on his body, I would say he isn't quite a dragon. If he has the scaling on his gills he has the gene, but I doubt the scaling will progress any more on his body.
