  1. Is dragon scale gene recessive or dominant?

    Breeding Betta Fish
    Thinking about crossing a dragon(thick white scales on body, large red fins) with a non-dragon(metallic turquoise with red fins). Both are halfmoons. Is this likely to produce more dragons? Or is the trait recessive? Ideally I'd want some dragons, not all of the fry have to be dragons, but I...
  2. Petco Dragon Scale Rant

    Betta Chat
    I think we need to have a meeting with Petco. They CLEARLY do not know what a dragon scale is.... Out of the 8 or so labeled dragon scales they had, only one would be considered a real dragon scale....
  3. Meet Hoarfrost!

    Betta Pictures
    My roommate has been looking for a MG HMPK for quite a while now, specifically from The Betta Shop in MN. Since we live within an hour's drive, when shipment day dawned she emailed in and reserved the (only) MG HMPK. While we were there to pick him up, a lovely black dragonscale caught my eye...
  4. What type of betta is this?

    Breeding Betta Fish
    Hey breeders, I'm hoping you can help tell me what type of betta I have. I purchased him two days ago from a Petco. He was labeled as a dragonscale betta. What are your thoughts? He doesn't look like a typical dragonscale, except for the white body. His colors and fin structure are very...

    I never thought it would happen. But it has happened. I'm in love. I wish I had another tank. I've never seen a more beautiful fish. He has such a unique color pattern.
  6. Dragon Eyes.. Ever wonder what it looks like?

    Betta Pictures
    I have a little pet store boy, I'm pretty sure he's a dragon scale rosetail but his scaling is quite bad and over the past year that I've had him he's been progressively losing his sight. He can still see a little and comes to the tank when he sees me. I working on other ways to tell him it's...
  7. "White Dragon King Crown Betta" Breeding Possibility

    Breeding Betta Fish
    (photoshopped image) Because of this picture my interest in bettas was reignited since I had one in a little .5 gal tank in 2nd grade. I extensively researched bettas for the past few months and it's all been really exciting. Because of all this extensive forum lurking and Google searching, I...
  8. Blue/green dragons?

    Breeding Betta Fish
    I have read that dragonscale is characterized by thick, whitescaling and that when naming dragons the color describes their body color and not their scale color. I have also read that blue dragons are not possible. My question is whether or not the "dragons" below are really dragons, as their...
  9. Breeding Project Questions

    Breeding Betta Fish
    Hi all, I have never bred bettas before but I have been lurking on forums and reading up on betta phenotypes and genetics. I currently own a cute delta tail male named Clarence that I bought from a Petco a month ago, and I have had bettas in the past. I'm interested in breeding quality bettas...

    Betta Spawn Logs
    Wohooooo! If anyone has been following my spawn attempts since late February, they would know that I've had the terrible luck of a beginner. No more, however! I decided I would NOT update or create a new thread unless the spawn was complete and daddy had done his job...well, THE FRY ARE FREE...
  11. What color is Mr. Gold?

    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...

There's around 100 fry in this spawn and all seem to be doing great so far. I will be posting a spawn log soon. It wasn't my idea pairing but after 4-5 months...
  14. Betta Is Swimming Weirdly?

    Betta Fish Care
    Hi. I'm new to posting up here. I have a dragon scale betta. Have had him since June and have had no problems since. Today I noticed he was swimming differently, not sideways. He started swimming with his head pointed down and goes kinda vertically and goes across the tank. His body is slightly...

    Meet Io! My brand new betta:-D He's a red/blue dragonscale from Petsmart. His name, Io, comes from Jupiter's volcanic moon. Fun fact: Io is the most volcanically active object in the solar system, covered in over 400 volcanos! The name certainly fits this little guy too...he hasn't...
