Sparta-fish :)

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?

My betta Gibbs (pictured in my icon) actually behaves the same as you's :) Ive had him for almost a year and he still gets stress stripes. He's also very small, and he has an eggspot. When I hold up a mirror, he only flares for a few seconds before running and hiding.

Maybe we just have feminine bettas.

Love love love that color! I'm a sucker for anything purple and that mix of color is stunning.
