Wow pretty amazing fins, can't help but feel a little sorry for him having to carry them around though, they must be heavy! Also he appears to have the dragon scaling pigment covering his eyes which may lead to blindness later on.
Fins are getting too big. This is why I turned to plakats.
I agree Snowflake! Sometimes the fin size is just ridiculous, I cannot help admire the beauty of an individual fish however I recently decided to try to stick to plakats from now on. Bettas with really large fins rarely stay looking perfect for very long. They always get tears and blow their fins sooooo easily. Plakats in general just look neater and I love the fact they are so beautiful and yet the inbreeding to produce such incredible colouration hasn't compromised their quality of life (ie they are generally hardier in that they have less health problems and not the physical hindrance of carting all that finnage)
Yes I noticed the dragon scaling over the eyes, poor thing. :( I would only get him so he could have nice hammocks to rest on and live out his slow moving life in peace. No breeding whatsoever.
I agree, I've moved on from the pretty HMs that have nice long fins and then a month later they chew it off or something. I am in love with females and HMPKs right now, speaking of which I am trying to talk myself out of the 'white gear' from Majcha Farms...
I have a Majcha Farms female who marbled from peach to black and blue, I honestly love to see how they change. :) Marbles and koi colors are my favorite. I'll probably wait on that boy though, I need to save my money.
I absolutely love his heavy irid! I can't help to stare at his peduncle though...his fins look great but his body really....sucks for lack of better term lol. I agree, not the best form but definitely some neat looking colors!
Majcha has some awesome marbles and fancies...I got a fancy female,a super blue female and a super red female and they're all healthy and gorgeous. The fancy has gotten a little darker since I first got her...her tan/skin colored scales have become black. I really love Majcha though!
