Yes, I did. And I was quite impressed with the spread on a standard 2-ray traditional Plakat.

Chard: yes I did, as well!
I,think people,tend to forget that before we came ( about 10-20+ generations ago) bettas had no trouble making gorgeous tails!

Word,of advice: keep it simple....Heehee....a simple betta, Hmm...
Look to the health of your betta, first, and don't muck it up with extra fancy tails that bring genetic issues :)

We are talking about the ray branching in the caudal fin. The primary ray starts at the caudal peduncle and branches as it extends out to the end of the tailfin or caudal. The Copper Plakat I showed only had secondary ray splitting where the primary ray only splits once into two rays and still has a 180 degree caudal spread. Some caudal ray branching can split up to up to 5 times making 32 rays at the outer edge of the tailfin. After that I guess is where you get into Rosetails and Feathertail branching because there is no more room to branch.

Well, that makes more sense.

Though I was just saying that I was confused about where the comment came from. :3

I'm just a confused person today I guess. D:

Is it possible to confuse someone who is already confused? xD

$50.00 for the first bid. $100.00 for buyout. I don't think it's worth it. Still a beautiful fish, though.

Seriously, this Black warrior thing is a bit much. Yeah, they look cool but not $100 cool.

I decided that I'm going to breed that red-head HM girl with my DTHM boy. That'll be my "black warrior" or whatever. I won't charge $100.00 though. -rolls eyes-

Whenever I see "black warrior," I think that it should be called something else....I'd say "Ninja" so we'd know with just one word, we're talking about a black fish. But, in my eye, the "Ninja" would be a plakat or hmpk...a bit more simplistic fins (not that they are...but they look more "wash and wear" than an HM).

I always see the HMs as elegant but flamboyant...and more feminine. And that deep, velvety black that absorbs light, sometimes with just a few rays of light like one or two stars managed to break through that deep, dark background....

Sorry to confuse, just rambling again :). Just ignore me...

Oh, and I totally agree: he is pretty, although I think they went overboard on the caudal ray splitting just like we were talking about (rambling?) before! And $100 is way too much!
