Yea, i'm pretty sure they do have the double tail gene, neither parents nor one of their sibling males had it tho. But i think it looks pretty nice.
Their temperature is actually pretty low =< i can't turn the heat up too high because my room is on the 3rd floor and all the heat raises into my room and i ended up having to turn the AC on. So they are all sitting at 75 degrees, the ones in the divided tanks have a heater and is at 78-80 degrees. They haven't been growing as fast as i was hoping from the low heat =/.
I still feeding them 3x a day, I have gotten lazy so i mix all the food together into a jar and feed by dipping a wet tooth pick in. Its a mix of decapp brine shrimp eggs, gold pearls, NLS grow, NLS small fish. I feed the mix twice a day and bloodworms+ gut loaded adult bring shrimps once a day.
I have been pretty busy lately (i have a full time job and i run a online ebay store), so i didn't have time to change the water everyday. so they have been getting changed every other day.
They eat like champs! I need to take some pictures soon, its been a while, many of them are marbling pretty nicely. Alot of them has lost color and became cellophanes. My favorite 'mustard', the one in my avatar is now a cellophane too, lol the fins are still yellow, but the body lost the blue and became peach =(!
My count is now at 136 bettas, with 5 deformed but healthy fish (2 missing tails, 1 missing ventrals, 1 messed up mouth, 1 swim badder issue) I don't cull, so i am keeping the deformed ones unless someone wants to adopt them, none of their deformities affects their quality of life, they are just not perfect. The missing ventral and the one with swim badder issue is actually extremely pretty.
