So most of you probably saw the new Diamond eye betta on aquabid or in the forum recently
well I was curious what causes this excessive dragon on a fish. I have a male I recently bred
Dahli who has slightly the same fault. Mind you I was just searching for a young red male, which is hard to find at a pet store, for my little female as part of a personal line. Know I'm curious so far all 3-4 of the fry show none of the diamond eye. The female only had showed a slight dragon pattern. No telling if the diamond eye bred due to the large amount of fry I lost. I was curious do you think that this is a more dominant trait or how does this sort of thing come to be? I never knew that extensive dragon could travel into the eyes. I might try to breed him again to see if I can get the diamond eye to understand how this happens but I wouldnt want deformed fish that had a hard time living. So far Dahli shows no form of inability or blindness from this but I will wait before I decide.
