red dragon CTPK x red dragon CTPK

got them in the mail yesterday from midwestbettas on here. they're settled in and have started conditioning them. they're spending a good bit of time at the divider, VERY interested in each other. Nancy's all striped and eggy and Sid is busily nesting! in a couple of weeks we should have a mass of eggs that'll probably be ready for homes by the end of may. we'll post some pics of them soon!

(sorry for the very-preemptive post, this is our first spawn and we're excited as hell)

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

Look at the caudal fin when flared, it more rounder and spread wider then your regular ct girls.

also, being a plakat her body is a bit wider than you'd expect with longer-finned varieties.
