    I need help identifying my bettas

    Post by ennu79 on Wed Nov 23, 2011 10:41 pm

    hello. I am new to this forum. I have had bettas on and off for about 20 years. I have recently made two betta purchases, a male which is called a butterfly? and a female which i am not sure on. i would like to expand my knowledge and get into breeding and raising high quality, uniquely coloured bettas. So i guess at the moment i need advice on identifying the different types and also on the colour genetics. I would appreciate any help that i could be given on the subject. I will try and load pics of my fish later. Thank you in advance.

    Hi, welcome. A picture would help. There is a section on colours and genetics on the forum. Cheers

    I do love my Butterflies. I have several strains that produce them but when breeding them you will also get solid colored and Marbled ones as well as various amounts of the butterfly effect. It sometimes skips a generation depending on the genetics of the parent fish.

    hi. the pic i have as my avatar is a pic of my male. It is not the best quality photo, hopefully someone can identify my male somewhat by it. thank you for the advice Milngavie, i have read the the colour and genetics forum. I am still a bit confused, i think it is because i have not figured out what the true name of the colours are for my fish.
