Dragon scale? Nope! Imbellis...

Saw this boy at PetsMart yesterday. I recognized him as an imbellis or some sort of cross breed. Labeled "Dragon Scale". I hate chain stores with a passion. I got this guy, one blue mask also labeled dragon scale , a trad. PK dragon, and a blue DeT male.

First two are the possible Imbellis boy.

Funny.. The first guy does look like an imbellis.
I always figured large chain stores wouldn't be messing with wild types though.

I think their supplier may have confused him with the other dragons.

Didn't dragon scale come from the imbellis? Introduced into betta splendens through cross breeding?

Could be an imbellis x splenden hybrid.

It can be hard to get a pure, good-quality imbellis, especially from a wholesaler.

I'm not 100% sure but it is some sort of wild cross. Yes dragon did come from imbellis crosses but this guy has the fins, color, and attitude of imbellis. I'll show a pic to Linda Olson for identification when I pick up my imports.

I'm leaning towards the hybrid.
