I wouldn't describe that red girl as cambo. I suppose cambo is a confusing term. I guess she is probably carrying the cambodian gene. But she's not displaying the cambodian pattern which requires her to have a cream coloured body. Should we describe our fish by the traits they display or the genes they carry?

Anyway I think she's going to make very pretty babies if she takes a liking to your red boy. I bags fry.

Extended red cambos don't have the cream body. You can usually pick them by their patchy incomplete masks and lighter red body colour. Extended red cambo boys are even harder to spot. I had close to a dozen of Busman's extended red cambo CT boys and didn't even realize what they were - just thought they were normal red with patchy faces...*lol*

Didn't even work it out when we were pondering why only the females in the spawn were cambo and no males...

There's been a few additions to the Melbourne Betta Stables of late, they don't all have names, good photographs or much else... so until I get a good bunch of photos, here are some of the new additions to the display/breeding stock/pet section at the MB stables.....


Can't wait to shoot his missus, she's got a bigger beard than most of my boys....


Lovely corn blue / turq and white white white-out white dragon with cello - very feathery effect on the fins... he's a big of a poser too.
