She was a walmart betta, so unknown background....
but my dal guy is the same
With the red,it seems people have bred dals to red and have gotten all reds, but when they bred back one of the females with the dal dad they got dals in the mix, so, Im probably goingto he to do some back breeding (which I plan to do anyway since I plan to introduce in some different fin types)

the red on the fins, though, will totally overshadow the red spots. .3. that's what i read on BettySplendens about her dal breeding. she got the best results, when she bred dal to orange. but, that's the fun about dals! they're total unknowns! i want to try crossing dal, to pure white. .3.

Cellophane would probably turn out well. I dunno about a dragon, it might cover the spots. I've read that the dragon gene is dominant.

i saw a dragon dal once. .3. he was a beautiful orange dragon, with silvery-orange scales and orange fins with the blood red spots on the fins. the dragon gene just affects the scales, not the fins. :3

he was on Aquabid. they don't always have dals there, and when they do, it's just bettas with spots all over, not true dals. :/ but, sometimes, if you're lucky, you can find some. try searching for "dalmatian", "spot", and "dot". .3.

I've been browsing aquabid, and I couldn't find any dals. But one must appear someday!
