Thank you for understanding that I do not condone the fighting of anything and do not like it. I am glad to see that some people here have great knowledge and understand Thailand thinking. Some of the best betta's I have ever seen came from around here. Every one thinks that spotted betta's are new? We have been culling them for 10 years and not breeding them. Solid body color only for Thailand sales. As far as white or black not very popular either and lon fins are not good sellers. hmpk and pk are mostly sold here. But in Bangkok they sell every color under the sun......
We will post some more pictures today after we get them loged in and give them a # and check a slide under a microscope to see if all is OK. If OK, we will bottle them for holding till they feed and then move them to a holding tank of 350 gallons. We will be making a holding system for local stock. We know of 4 kinds. Blue, red, green, and now orange and black. The new fish have a tail spot.
