The betta was in a fight with another male...that explains it.
This breeder has placed in shows several times.
She's a pretty nice person too (I'm on another forum with her).
Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.
