Silly question... are all PK's have dragon on them?

So do they have dragon genes on them?

Nope. Dragon is a type of scaling. Petsmart seems to call all plakats dragons though.

Yeah I noticed that, some of them are dragons, and their Plakats aren't HM so they're not really so good

LOL the majority of petsmart's "HMs" barely qualify as deltas.

I do have a nice HM I got from petsmart but the jerk ate his fins. He's a total psychotic wreck.

Go with a good breeder if you want good fish!

BS I've seen every grade of betta at Petco. There are some HMPK Dragon scale fish sitting at the one I visit right now. That being said some of them aren't dragon scale. I think what you're seeing is, many of the really good examples are sold before you get there ;)

It could be, this is the guy I got from them yesterday, is he a copper dragon HMPK?
