Betta Anatomy

Does anyone have any detailed pictures that outline betta anatomy in a non-cartoon fashion? I have not found any pictures of this sort and believe that there ought to be some.

I believe that my late betta had somehow expelled some organ from his body (he was very weak and the bacterial infection was so bad that it was possible). The only problem was that I had no clue if it was an organ or rather a hunk of food that he had been trying to expel for months (he had been constipated for the longest time).

Due to this incident, I'm going to research betta anatomy and put my findings on the internet. Any pictures that you may have would be greatly appreciated!!

this one seems good to me, or do you want something really realistic?

Definitely more realistic. I would like to see actual organs. I've got a feeling that I'm gonna have to ask Petsmarts and Petcos for their dead betta :/

Me too! I'm a major science geek and I've always wondered what the insides of small pet fish look like.

No different than what my college does - dissecting pigs, frogs, mice, sharks, snakes, cats, and dogs. If done properly and with respect to the animal, it's okay.

If you're talking about the fishy aspect - dissecting a dead fish, I can see where you're coming from. The smell can be a bit strong sometimes.

I've never seen a dissected betta labeled.. I doubt you'll find it on the internet.
