I agree, id love to play with color (since its easier) and then see where I can take it! i have a few other bettas if i need and am def willing to add stock but nothing till I can breed out a large batch of f2 and see what is hiding! I have a sneaking suspicion there can be some fun stuff in here!
As far as marble, im not so interested in that as much as I am the bicolor blue, as well as adding some pattern into the tails.
Also as far as HM goes, they both have 8 rays, and the female looks like she might fill out to a more proper HM
opinions? can traditional plakat have 8 rays? or do they become traditional hmpk at 4+ rays?
Either way, I got their setup finalized today and I think they should be some fun regardless and something for me to obsess about!
(also regarding the curved caudal fin, that isnt necessarily a bad thing according to IBC and T-HMPK) but still the first spawn will be the tell tale
