    Betta Pictures
    Hi! I'm new here and I'm fairly new to bettas (though not to fishkeeping) and am looking for a little guidance! I'd love some help identifying my female betta's pattern/fin type. Her thick white scales and "skunk stripe" indicate to me that she might be a dragon, and she has marbled...

  3. Different color dragons

    Breeding Betta Fish
    Hi, I am new to breeding bettas and am currently looking for a breeding pair. I'm a little confused about dragon and metallic genetics (and color genetics in general- there's so many options). If you breed two red dragons would all of the offspring be red dragons? What if you bred a red...

    Betta Pictures
    I got this halfmoon dragon scale male from Petco yesterday. He's doing well, and settling into his home quite nicely. I'm just wondering what his color would be called. Is there a name for it, besides just "gold"? His scales are a beautiful, bronze-gold color. In natural light, he's an...

  10. Is this a Dragon Scale or a Plakat?

    Betta Pictures
    Hubby and I bought a new betta after Christmas that was labeled at Petsmart as a Dragon Scale Betta (male). After doing some additional research, our betta guy, Grumpy, may be more accurately labeled as a Plakat. We like him no matter what, but now we're curious as to what he really is.:-)...

    Betta Fish Care
    Hello! this is my first post! I'm Zac. I used to do a lot of breeding SA cichlids, loaches, and plecs, and even wrote on it. I got out of the hobby a few years ago. I've wanted to do a tank for a while, but just do not have the time for a tank of any reasonable size. I was in a PetSmart today...
