I assume Matt is talking about the Black Rosetailed Halfmoon and not your beautiful HM Plakat Ladykeiva. He is absolutely to die for!

I agree, but it's not just Rose Tail's that give themselves a trim. Larger HM's and Delta's can do it to if their caudal is big/long enough, not necessarily at the Rose Tail side yet. I also had my VT give his anal fin a trim >.>

I also figured he was referring to the rose tail.

and =) Thanks!! Almost missed out on buying him... Watched his clock dwindle down to nothing until my funds replenished.

I bought my first aquabid betta 5 or 6 months ago...Big beautiful halfmoon boy. Went on 4 day vacation, came back and he had chomped his caudal down to almost nothing. Healed up fine but I don't think it'll ever be full and glorious again.

Here's the sellers old vid of him. (His name is Jasper)

You run the risk of tail biting with ANY long fin betta.
xfactors aswell.
say you bought a HM but didn't know it came from a batch that also contained rosetails because none of those were listed....the HM would still have those genes.
This is why I said to /not/ inbreed him.

Breeding with double-tails produces more spine problems in the fry, but I don't see people complaining about this every time someone tries to add it to their line...?

Knowing to what to cull, not breeding deformed and unhealthy fish and being aware of the issues you may face weighed against the perks of strengthening certain traits are all part of being a breeder.

Appearently I can't edit...xD

Anyway, I would love to continue talking about rosetails(both sides of the debate) but we're off topic here. Message me or start up a discussion if you would like to continue.


Back on topic:


Aqubid is down for me, so here's a white from ebay. xD

Actually, acceding to color standards they really aren't that great. Factor that in with the anal being too long and there being a dragon scaling eye issue (on my fish, but it's in the genetics) they really aren't THAT great of specimens. There are much better fish to fit the IBC standards for sale any day.
I just really love the colors! I have a sister too, she's a doll but they'll never get bred by me after having my boy go half blind

I'm sorry about your Aquastar guy, Aemaki. It's a real shame you can't breed him. He is gorgeous and I was really excited for fry.


On the topic of Aquastar fish, this boy's colours are so cool. I hate his fins though. They just look, I don't know...messy?
