Oh Finnigan is living large in his own heated filtered 5g tank right next to the main sorority tank. Shows off all day for the ladies. I learned a lot from Finnigan however, I tried breeding him young and his fins torn up and have theynever been the same. Early tears can take forever to heal and may end a show bettas career early if you know what I mean. They are getting better but wow slow. Indjo recommends jarring male fairly early because of this reason. So...I will be identifying my breeders and show /for sale early from now on. Finnigan is a breeder now haha. I will post some pics and you will see. He has stayed mostly without color but a hint of blue tail. My plan is to breed him cello type gene off with a different type of marble panda type sister and see what happens, and then to a sister with the same type cello next. The girls need to grow a bit more and condition first. For me Smokey has been the most interesting as he had color big time, went panda black and white then to a completely different color and pattern than continues to change every day it seems. Now if he could ever get that stubborn lil female under his nest to mate Id be happy. She wants commitment and a ring I think.
Edit. There are a few different types of marble and all of them in this batch including piebald.
Not a nice name piebald, could have used a better name for marketing
