How can you tell if he is a salamander? I didn't even know that term existed for bettas.

Eureka! Someone on Fishforum said this: "It involves 3 colours, 1 that must be present is the white butterfly, this must be shown in all fins and the ventrals as well. The other 2 colours can be anything but they must not be a wash. The body will be one colour and then from the body and into the fins will be another."

Do you think mine is a salamander as well? It may be too early to tell. I don't think his colors have quite developed all the way yet.

Wait a sec, does that mean that my Smooches might be salamander as well??? He is very hard to capture on photo because he is a bit - well, speedy, lol. But he has the white trim all the way around his tail.
