IDK if this is really the right section, but I don't think there's really anywhere else, plus it feels kind of chatty and I'm just curious about it.
So: why do all the elephant ear betta fish I've seen have the exact same (ok, similar) coloring? (Purpley-grey with white-ish- or something like that- finnage?) Like sometimes I'll see variations like a leakage of color into the fins or a piebald style head or something, but they all look kinda the same? Do they come from a certain strain that can't be bred to have another color pattern show up without losing the EE trait or something? How does it work?
I'm not very familiar with EEs or any of the more exotic/rare/awesome betta kinds :) Like I said, just curious. Sorry if this is a dumb question or something, like the kind everybody but me the noob knows.
