Certainly you must have seen on the web or in person bettas called KOI, Fancy, Galaxy, Black Mamba, Black Samurai, Monster and others. And yet, questioned how to obtain them. Bettas with these phenotypes are classified as unstable multicolored. In other words, its visual characteristics (colors and color arrangement, specifically) change spontaneously throughout the lifeRead More »The unstable multicolored: Betta KOI, Fancy, Monster, Galaxy, Black Mamba, Black Samurai and others
Gaps in the genetic modeling of non-reds The globally accepted model for red pigmentation in Bettas is ineffective to explain the issue that we will deal with here: the blood red pigment existing in the color of current Bettas. In this article (and through our Course on Betta Genetics) we present the evidence that pointsRead More »Blood red color in Bettas: a new pigment
Presentation Have you seen bettas that have colors and color distribution that change throughout their lives? This is caused by the marble gene when present in the DNA of these specimens. We will deal with this subject in this article, its problem in fixing lineages in greenhouses of serious breeders and present a proposal aimingRead More »Strategy for eradication of marble trait on bettas phenotype
