Strong Coloring or Dragon scaling for Starscream?

So, whenever I look at Starscream or pictures of him, his coloring just seems to pop so much more than any of my other boys (Minus Mirage because he goes from blue to red).

So, does it look like Starscream is dragon scaled or just has strong coloring? Either way, I love him, but I'm just a little curious about him.

Dragon scale bettas have really thick scales around their gills. They don't necessarily have to have brighter colors, it's really just all about the scales. He really doesn't look like a dragon to me. Just a really pretty betta. But, I may be wrong. Just google dragon scale betta and you will see what I mean. =)

he somewhat looks like a dragon but he is not, he might be a combodian, for instance look at strawberry (almost similarities):

BTW he is a very beautiful boy ;]

He is neither a dragon or a Cambodian, he's just metallic. Cambodians have FLESH colored bodies. He is gorgeous, though. I'm pretty sure he's just a metallic bi-color.

What Sweeda said. Cambodians have flesh(pale) colored bodies. Bi-colored is what your boy is. A dragon has thick looking scales. It's hard to explain, but google it. A picture will show you what it is.

This is a cambodian.

Not a dragon. Dragons have thick scales and have *gill plates* Looking like armor. They look like this:



The scales on the gills that open up are also covered in the scale color that the body has. Its also looks like the betta in my avatar.
