Some have been using

"+" to represent metallic and "nm" to represent non metallic. So fish could be:

heterozygous: +nm
homozygous: ++

if they have metallic. Otherwise, they would be homozygous nm nm.

"As of this writing, the IBC only recognizes the Solid Dark Bodied Copper Types for show purposes (gold, metallic green, metallic blue, metallic steel, metallic red, metallic black), but copper types are also available in 'Platinum' (copper over opaque), metallic bicolors, metallic marbles, metallic multicolors, and more."

I presently have a metallic red with some dragon in him. The female I just bought who I am going to breed him to is platinum (copper over opaque).

Here she is!

Thank you!!!

She is coming from Thailand and will be here in two days. I feel she compliments him well and will improve upon his minor faults (he doesn't have any major/serious ones that I'm aware of). Basically an improvement on his ray symmetry and double ray. Of course, metallic fry as well.

However, my Betta fund at the moment is now officially depleted! Breedings will be postponed for a couple months or so to allow for growth, conditioning, and increase in Betta fund.

If anyone would be interested in owning their fry feel free to let me know.
