I don't know about types, I just saw a fish that I thought was good in colour pattern and something that would be worth going through the import process lol. I spend way to much time browsing aquabid lol. When I see something that I feel is really nice or unusual I share :).

Re: Blue Dragon

I meant the one in post #7846, Matt. I thought I had edited my post to clarify. Apparently it didn't take. <sigh> I'm such a puter lud.

What is the difference with Dragons, and normal I see loads listed as dragon and the only thing I can see is perhaps the scales are more defined and sometimes they seem to have a metallic sheen but not always, but I guess some could list as dragon and not be dragon?

Traditionally, a dragon is a dragonscale betta with a solid white body and whatever coloured fins. Ie. An orange dragon is a betta with a solid white body and orange fins, a red dragon has a solid white body and red fins, a black dragon has a solid white body and black fins, etc.

So there is a difference between a dragon and a betta with dragonscales because dragon refers to a specific pattern.

Blue dragons would have SOLID white bodies and blue fins; however, blue dragons would normally be impossible because of how the colour layers are inherited.

Thank you for your description, although I have to say there must be loads listing as dragon that are not really dragon, I have seen many listed as fancy dragon but seem to have a marble pattern on their bodies. when you see the ones listed as a red dragon I understand that side now, because I used to think it was odd they called it red when it had a white body with red fins, lol.
I actually thought it was the metallic sheen when I was guessing, lol.

Yes, Fancy Dragon's are Dragon scaled Betta's with either Marble type coloration or some other fancy type coloration. So that's basically all other Dragon's besides Solid colored Dragon's.

Metallic sheen or iridescence doesn't usually denote a Betta's color name except for Copper which is legit, metal like in color of course.

Those who've purchased from Thailand, how long did it take your fish to get home?
