But I don't know what they look like! Been lurking the site, and found my way into the breeding section.. Curious, it says not to mix tails for you will get 'messy' tails and mutts! I just want to know an example of what a messy tail is! I haven't seen an ugly betta other than those with detrimental mutations, I guess cause no one is taking pictures of them?
Just wondering! :) Not like I'm planning breeding. I don't even have my fish yet, but if you know me, you know I'm a research nut ;) I tend to 'plan ahead' and learn for things that may ever POSSIBLY come up in the future! With all this research I doubt I'll ever breed, if I did it would be with a pair that I know would have very pretty fry and I would make sure there were people to take them.
This is more a question of curiosity about the tails I guess! I like trying to figure out what the bettas are in some pictures I see, which is tricky enough with the mutations within each specific tail type.. :) I figure a mutt must be a betta not up to show standards, though from the difference in a crown and a veil tail, I bet some pretty wonky traits show up!
Oh, and I think I've chosen the website I hope to buy my future fishy from! I actually have a couple of sites I am looking at..but I'm excited. These are such the prettiest fish! I can't wait to have my little boy! I don't mind paying for shipping.. The fish themselves, even the pricey ones seem so affordable compared to even the beautiful leopard gecko morphs out there XD
