Dragon scale Crown-tail
I had bought my betta, Kenji from there, he was a crowntain, and he didn't look any different.
So my Q is, What is a Dragonscale Crown-Tail Betta?

Doing a google image search for "dragon betta" will bring up a lot of typical dragonscale bettas. It's a lot easier to see what it is than explain it...
If it looked like a normal betta, maybe they mislabeled it or hoped someone would buy it for the name?

And another difference is the price! $5 for the regulars, $12 for dragonscale!

They also have a thick metallic, commonly silvery-white all over but times have changed and the metallic/platinum range is more common than before. Dragons were first 'invented', using Plakets (red copper plakat, Betta sp. mahachai). So, plakets are the more common type of dragon scaling you can see on the market, however, there was some inbreeding experienced, to get this line.
So back to the OP question...............a true dragon will have metallic scaling all over, where as a masked scaling dragon may only have some scaling of metallic on a base coating (not to be confused with the actual masked coloring)
