    Mustard gas just refers to the yellow color in the fins. I would say it is definitely one of them

    You don't have him yet? Was he ordered online?

    I would definitely QT him before you put him in your display tank, or atleast treat him first.

    Mustard gas is a very specific type, what you have is close enough to it for breeders to consider it to be a mustard gas, but a mustard gas has a blue to green body and light orange to yellow with a thick black or blue edging to all fins. Yours has a black base body with blue over it in the scales, the fins are a little two dark, he would be considered just a bi-color. Mustards are pretty much butterfly color pattern, however it is also just a color name that has been muddied and taken by just about every breeder to try and sell the fish.

    I would consider this to be a chocolate rather than mustard gas. But thats me.

    Going from the post above, the original mustard gas line is pretty much 'lost':

    Thank you @aussieJJDude i have researxhed about jude als and i know this isnt an original mg but one has to womder if the guy is still out there some where .Its so sad what happened to him and i honestly am angered by it .I feel for the guy .As much i love the name mustard gas i know they arent his line. I hope one day he gets bacj into it and takes his name (betta) back . but makes you wonder if he is still out there breeding.

    Whatever he is , he's beautiful and better looking than the "true" Mustard Gas in my opinion.
