A Good Catch

The feeling of getting a good catch for a good price is simply marvelous. I got this salamendar plakat few weeks back in a local LFS. It was frail and sick, left in a corner where nobody bothers to check it up.

I decided to pick it up because it has very good banding and there seem quite a decent number of caudal rays, though its finnage were clamped up due to the sickness. The caudal edges still recovering from the minor fin rot cannot hide the true beauty of this piece.
This fish will definitely affect my salamender breeding plan :))

Project Updates

Its been a long time since I updated my Betta blog. I am just distracted by my other fishes - either goldfish or guppy. Of course, I have not neglected my bettas - I merely spawn lesser in the midst of the Ranchu breeding season and to ease on maintenance, I culled even stricter.

Here is about the only blackhead royal blue I keep for propagating:

... and I am also trying to reboot my old sala line, so far only the pineapple variants has better finnage:

Mr Mascara

Creating a new colour combination is difficult in the betta scene because there are already so many veterans and good breeders who have exploited most of the imaginable colours. 

After more than a year of casual experimenting, finally one fish in my fancy spawn may worth a second look. Matte black scaling and luminous blue streaks peppered its finnages and more interestingly, on both upper eye lids like mascara. Maybe it is not new, but nonetheless, it is an odd one out very different from its siblings in a fancy spawn.

Still unsure if this colour gene will be stable. The only way is to just do it ... ;-P

Ear Mark

Ear-marking a few of my Blue Marbles and Grizzles from a promising spawn for intensive grooming. 

The problem with marble patterns is that they can change their colour patterns over time. Hopefully it will be a beautiful coat of patterns in due time :)
