Colors

What's your favorite bettaautolinker.com autolinking image (splendens) color??

OR color combo?

I'm trying to learn about genetics in these fish and it is absolutely fascinating to me. I never minded science back when, but wasnt THAT into it. But now...when it is applied to something I love, it really has me interested.

70 gallon- Betta Enisae pair, betta Ocellata pair, female Betta Pugnax

29 Gallon- Betta Pallifina and Betta Patoti

20 Gallon- Betta Gladiator

5 Gallon- Betta Channoides

And numerous Betta Splendens

Coming soon: Betta Macrostoma :D

Re: Colors

I don't know the name for it, because I don't think it has a trade name yet, other than "Apache". But you know those opaque marbles with a lot of white and the BIG, BRIGHT color splotches? Love 'em.

Re: Colors

I like metallic colors and a nice contrasting color. A nice bronze with sulfur, or green, a nice silver and baby blue, or even red. I am a multi colored fish color person. Strangely I like the same with flowers. I am not into "single color" anything. I like patterns and color combinations better.

Many call them koi, but they are just a fancy marble! Amazing fish and so far, they have yet to breed true without a lot of work.



Hard to say on the colors i like best. I love the red dragons. I have bred them before. I prefer them pks rather than halfmoons though. I also love copper and blue metallics and of course metallic white.

If i drew it it'd look like a monkey eating a horsradish on the moon or something

Re: Colors

I like them all mostly, but I do ahve a few favorites. Ones that show a LOT of different colors. Ones that are yellow. And Koi bettas, they are so amazing.

Re: Colors

I like banana yellow and the best yellow contrasting color. I like yellow patterns, splotches, stripes and any color yellow combinations better. And you know what? My favorite color is yellow to anything, and everywhere.

Oh how I wish I was a fish to swim in the deep blue sea. I would swim up and down and all around in laps of two or three. There would be no rules to follow, all fun down here. On land rules ae trouble, a real pain in the rear. Humans are not wanted down here and for them you must always look. For they only want to see us fish dangling from hook. A sea full of wonder, yes that's the life for me. Oh how I wish to be a fish and one day soon I'll be!

Nah I'm not talking about the tradename "koi" bettas. Though I love them too and have a few myself. I'm talking the ones nearing dragonscaling with white opaque scales and big splotches of blue, green, red, etc. All over the body, not just to make fancy goldfishautolinker.com autolinking image patterns like the koi. Most of the ones I've seen either have slightly raised scales or black scale edging on their bodies.

Meh it's hard to explain without a picture and since I don't own one of these guys yet, not much I can do about that. LOL.

The essential is to excite the spectators. If that means playing Hamlet on a flying trapeze or in an aquarium, you do it. [Orson Wells]
