You talked about scale "issue" here. I'm new to keeping Bettas, so I'm wondering what this is. What defines the scales as "quality" or as less than desirable?

It took some digging but this is Rocky. He is classic scale issue fish. He was not bad but had the worst scales ever poor guy. Last seen he was living it up in a 30g of his own at a wealthy gents house. Lucky the f2 had none with such a big problem as uncle Rocky. I will try to get some pics up of the ones left in the spawn as they are starting to marble up more and on a growth spurt.

That's really interesting. There's a lot more to take into account when breeding Bettas than I would have thought. Beautiful betta anyway.

Yeah there are about 7 more tanks you cant see in the pic and 5 1g containers with a fish, so Im lucky the wife is good about it. I want more space but she isn't budging on that so I must be even more creative or kick a kid outta the house the key to keeping cost down is looking for good deals on 2nd hand aquarium stuff many tanks were free, the most paid for any tank was 25 bucks and often included heaters, filters and décor. Lots of power cleaning involved but well worth it. Water change day can be lots of work.
