Question What color is she?

A few days ago I rescued a female CT betta from a petco. She was stressed out when I got her, so her colors looked very different. She looked very much like this in the poor lighting of the store:


I have named her Twitch, since she is the most active and spazy of my girls.
Twitch is gunmetal grey with red fins, but she also has this full bodied bright silver iridescence that I find breath taking. Unfortunately this iridescence is hard to capture because my phone's camera has no flash.


I will try to get better pictures later. She was still adjusting to her new home when these were taken, so she is rather grumpy in them.

More pictures!

Got some better pictures after feeding time.
Everyone is always happier after eating





Twitch is so tiny! Half the size of her other betta girl tank mates.

Very cute girl! She's a Tri-color copper w/ red wash, as her fins don't seem to be completely red.

Dante was like that:


not a tri-color copper. just a copper. maybe what i called Dante, which was Red Copper Butterfly, since he had a band of black at the edge of his fins. :3

So what qualifies a betta as being Copper? I've learned all the different types and most of the colors from forums and pictures from aquabid, but I havent been able to figure out the qualifications for copper bettas.

the silvery scales, i guess. not shiny enough to be a dragon(though i've heard rumors of copper dragons), kinda grey-ish....

Copper is a color.. that gunmetal color. They can also be very silvery and almost gold in color. Some have the red fins, some have black fins, and some are all copper. You can see a lot of variegated fins with white, red, black, etc.

As long as the body of the fish is copper the fish is copper.. you can specify with fin color.. eg your fish would be a red copper.
