Here's the female belted king fisher if you don't know what it looks like.
Wow, that is an amazing coincidence. Though I am somewhat familiar with the look of kingfishers, I wasn't really thinking about that when I named him. I've always just loved the sound of "Alcyone". He does have a remarkable resemblance which is just amazing! If I see another betta that looks like a bird I'll let you know!
PewPew I have plans to breed them but I have to wait until school starts up again... Then I'll be breeding Senshi, followed by Alcyone, followed by NIB's fry.
