I'm starting to see them around here. We have a couple of typical bettas now, refugees from center pieces at a wedding.

These metallic ones have got me more interested, potentially breeding. Anyone here doing that?

I am. I am waiting for the weather to warm up a bit, and then I am getting a green mask HMPK pair. I have 2 copper mask males (one's a DDRCT and the other's a SD).

Ooo! I'll interpret!

she says, "...and then I am getting a green mask Half Moon Plakat pair. I have two copper mask males (one's a double double ray crowntail [sounds awesome Anne, post a pic] and the other's a Super Delta)."


I am, however, only guessing on PK = Plakat. :)

I just say the actual word. That's just basically shorthand. You wouldn't say "LOL".

I love those metallic ones!!! I have been waiting for someone local or close by to offer the ones that are referred to as Red dragon plakats.

I bred bettas in my younger years and it was a blast!

here are some pictures.

looks like I'll have to do alot of research on the web before deciding what to do in this area. Obviously, I wouldn't want someone to stick me with a kfaodpwcue when I ask for a aksndzdccma, so I better know the differences!

Speaking of Bettas... Who here keeps females bettas in a community tank with each other? Anyone ever have this happen:

I was adding a new female to my "colony" and I just so happen to have one rather large female with long flowing fins (compared to the other girls, anyway) And the new girl in her cup was watching this large female and suddenly sprouted verticle mating lines!!!

Wow was she shocked when I eventually put her in the water and she found out there are no males in my tank........ The large female then spent the next two weeks hiding in the water wisteria forest. They're ok now, though.

:confused:
