While crusing ebay for some betta related stuff (looking for a betta mirror but as the UK is completely incapable of stimulating their fish I can't get toys :( ) I came across the "marine betta". Can find lots of pics of them on google images, they are like a large brown betta with white spots. They are missing the upturned mouth of our "domestic bettas" but they are still fairly impressive looking!
Anyone know anything about them? Just out of curiosity. I would never have a marine tank. Are they have any relation to our little splendens?
There is no member of Osphronemidae that is marine. The fish was dubbed with that name due to its similar appearance to freshwater Betta spp. Interesting looking fish, tho. Pictures here: CalloplesiopsArt
Hmm I think they look very pretty. :) I couldnt find a heck of a lot of info on them when I typed in marine betta I just got lots of betta splendin pages.
Ky checks the thermometer a lot! I've seen him balancing on the top of it having a rest, the Corys do it too. I've got a laser pointer somewhere that I baught for my cats I'll have to have a look for it!
