this is Spartacus :) i've had him about 2 months, he is very small- total length under 2 inches. Red-copper butterfly :) super delta
any one else have their coppers/metalics display stress stripes often, even when other near by bettas in similar (separate) environments don't? even turning a light on has irritated him. even when stripy he behaves the same- very active and curious. his health is otherwise great, never sick or slow.
i read that metalics are created by breeding splendens with other species, could it be a species that has more pronounced stripes?
also i noticed "he" has an egg spot.. along with low aggression, little to no bubble nest. is it possible that "he" is a female with exceptionally large fins?
