A dragon can have any fin variation, really, from my understanding. However, the scales of the dragon are thicker than a normal betta's and they are usually silver/white and have a certain shine to them. The silver/white scales, on my boys, at least, are covering red scales beneath them.
Sorta hard to explain.
Does that help?
thank you! i used some craft mesh i got from our "hobby lobby" then cut it to size, and placed the black report cover things, uh i forgot what they are called, like what you would slide down a bunch of papers in a report to keep them together. put one on each side of the mesh against the sides of the tank to keep it upright.
I think it's neat because it's such a different climate, lifestyle, and culture! I'd love to visit some day but don't think I'll ever get to. =/ I'll probably never even get off the mainland US much less to the Philippines. XD
