Our fighter plakat pair

I thought I would share our 5 star fighter plakat pair I'll be spawning soon. Just ordered the microworm culture and bbs.

I've been conditioning the pair for just over a week....the female is nice and full of eggs. I have a feeling they'll spawn pretty quick, which is common for fighter plakats from what I've read. When I let them see each other for 5-10mins a day she's showing breeding stripes instantly.

If all goes well I will be adding fries to our 23 betta collection. I'll be busy no doubt...I already am with 23 but it's awesome.

The male is Thai and the female is Viet/Malay. They are 8-9 months old. I also have 6 of Bertha's nephews so I'll be using those guys in a back cross with her.

This is Kong (male) He's 3.5" long total length



This is Bertha (female)

i'd imagine they're just in there long enough to fatten up for breeding. less energy used equals more energy stored.

because then they'd have more "moving around" space, which would lead to them using more energy rather than storing it. kinda like how if a person never gets off the couch they get fat.

fat tissue is actually stored energy, it's the body's way of preparing for tougher times when food would be scarcer.

Okay. Its just it seems the people with more excerise hare more energy. The fatter people I know have less engergy to move. But you know the breeding better.
