  1. What color is my fish?

    Betta Pictures
    I can't figure out what color my fish Cain is, his blue eyes just mess me up. I was thinking he was cellophane or pastel, but considering they usually have black eyes I wasn't sure, and also I don't think he's albino because he doesn't have red in the middle of his eyes. I'm just really...
  2. Disease or natural color change?

    Betta Fish Care
    My cellophane VT developed dark pigment all over his body. When purchased two months ago, his body had no pigment whatsoever. At first, the new pigment was chalked up to natural color change. Now, not sure. At first glance, the scales looks black. Upon close inspection, they show slight blue...

    Betta Pictures
    Meet Eclipse. Came from a local Walmart where he was living miserably in a filthy cup with an inch of water. His unusual color immediately caught my eye. He's essentially transparent, with a few dots of black pigment here and there. Eyes are reflective silver. Fins are also iridescent, giving...
  4. Cellophane Breeding Pair

    Breeding Betta Fish
    I recently ordered a cellophane breeding pair from Becky's Bettas. The two are goregous HMPK. The only flaw in the finnage is a little split white tip on the end of one of the male's ventrals. There are no spots on either, absolutely pure cellophane. I was led to believe they may carry the koi...
  5. Question for Experienced Koi Betta Breeders

    Breeding Betta Fish
    I have a beautiful koi female. Should I breed her to a solid red male, a cellophane male, a white male, or another koi? I keep reading confusing things. But those of you who have had success breeding specifically for Koi coloring, what would you suggest for me? Thank you so much!

  7. cellophane crossed with solid yields "?"

    Breeding Betta Fish
    am curious to what the resulting progeny will look like. let's say that the solid color parent came from a refined line of solid color fish. do all cellophanes possess the marbling gene, and therefore the progeny will be marbled, possessing a mix of the true color of the cello parent and the...

  10. Is my fish a marble??

    Betta Pictures
    Hey people! Alright, after observing my betta, Ghost, I've noticed something different about him... At first he was absent of most color except for some black grizzle, so I figured he was a cellophane betta. I've only had him for two months and noticed significant changes. The first photo is...

    Breeding Betta Fish
    Would a "glass" (cellophane, usually with black eyes) pair yield only glassy fry? Is this a solid gene or a marble gene? I'm very interested in them but can't find any information.
