I just bought the 2 bettas that will be my first step (hopefullu) in breeding dragon veiltails, something that doesn't exist right now.

Here is the male, an orange dragon hm with really think dragon scaling

Awesome bettas!

I'm not real familiar with beta phenotypes. I get the veil tail part but what is a 'dragon'?

See the very heavy metallic scaling on the body of the male? Thats known as dragon scaling. Dragon veiltails are unheard as are dragon crowntails, but they can be found in halfmoons, halfmoon plakats and double tails.

Awesome!!! I love, love, love orange bettas, they're hard to come by! I have a male plakat that is WAY more metallic looking than my other two bettas (traditional colored plakat & purple CT) but I don't think he's technically a dragon. He almost looks like velvet or something.

Good luck! Sounds like a fun project
