Snakeskin?

What are you calling "Snakeskin"?

Snakeskin refers to the spotted pattern that is naturally occurring in some fish. These fish can be selectively bred to enhance the pattern. The pattern exists in more than just Bettas.

Here's some examples that include Bettas, discus, and guppies.

I'm fully aware of the snakeskin patterns of Guppies and Discus but how are you coming up with a "snakeskin" pattern on Bettas. Certainly not the example you've given. Striated markings in some dorsals maybe but I've never heard anyone ever attribute that pattern to Bettas and certainly not to their body.

My advice would be to ask Daniel at Premium Bettas. He's the one trying to work on the line.

Also, here's a picture that is a bit better of an example. If you look closely you can see the pattern in the the and the anal fin as well.
