  1. Default Unique petsmart find


    0 Not allowed!
    Saw this little betta at petsmart and just had to grab him because I have never seen one with orange before. I was looking for a reason to throw my little pico tank back together anyway, so I put it together on my book case, I think it looks cool there.

    Petsmart had him labeled as a "dragonscale" or some nonsense name like that, it's clearly in between a plakat and a fancier breed. I wonder if they are just selling the rejects from spawns that would normally be culled? Edit: Nevermind I just googled it, I guess dragonscale refers to the scale size not the fins. I still say he's a rejected plaket lol. Regardless I think he's unique so I like him :) I need to get a pic of him flaring, he looks a little dumpy with his fins down lol.

    Congrats on the find

    I'm looking forward to seeing how he looks after a while in your care.

    Beautiful little guy never seen one colored like that. It looks to be a HMPK, kind of the best of both worlds a little frilly but not so much it cant function like a normal fish.

    Dragonscale refers to the scales. Dragons are bred for thicker scales, sharper teeth, better resistance to illness, etc. These are fighting bettas. They're also really cool little critters ^_^ I had an amber-colored dragon betta whose thicker scales were cream-colored with a blue iridescence to them.

    You found a pretty little fella ^_^ Love the color. I see blue veils with orange fins from time to time, but they're always gone when I try to purchase one ><

    The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of the act
