Talking Can someone help me with color identification?

As most of you probably found out, Petsmart is carrying dragon and HM bettas now. I couldn't stop myself and I bought one....

But I have no clue what to categorize his color as! I know he's green/turquoise... but the fins are making it hard for me to put him in a general category. Also, is he a dragon scale as well?





Thanks in advance for the information!

Haha awesome! If that's the case then I got him cheaper than I should have... All the dragons were $12 while the halfmoons (what he was marked as) were $7. And I got two in one :P Thank you!

thats because that IS a halfmoon with dragoning there is a difference between a HMPK dragon and a HM dragon what you have is not a PK he is a HM dragon the hm at petsmart are 6.99 which is why he was cheaper then the PK dragonscales they sell at 8.99 but be careful although they are marked as dragons some are clearly NOT what you want to look for are Irredescent scales that are outlined so you can baisly see the scales as individual units usually the body color is different from scale color like the dragon in my Avatar...oh and btw hes BEAUTIFUL!

its ok how do you think you learn? Do you see the anal and doral fin of yours compared to mine yours are very flowy and long where as my fish has very sharp and shaped fins..thats a good way to tell the difference..and I reread my post I hope I didnt sound rude cause I REALLY wasnt trying to be!!
