bettalover2033- I agree, Ninebettas probably photoshops his pics but he probably has a much better camera and far better lighting than I do so I'm not surprised his photo looks so nice compared to mine. He really isn't the most photogenic fish lol

When I first noticed that the blue marble had jumped the barrier and was flaring and wiggling like a maniac I seriously had to take a second look. But nope, they both have really obvious egg spots and now they've settled right in. Not a single torn fin even with all the flaring.

Good lol. Dont want to make the mistake of putting males together.

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.
