splendidbetta Posted January 3, 2006 Report Share Posted January 3, 2006 .... Continued Discussion from Najricks "Metallic Green/Blue" Photo Thread I am a bit obsessive about betta topline shape (only a bit? ) Yes it all comes down to what each individual person prefers to see in fish. I'm not saying that you should abandon your passion for DTs in your lines. But there are some very clean DT lines around without irregularities of the topline. And I agree that in many spawns there are a percentage of fish with topline irregularities. But it doesn't have to be that way. It shouldn't be part of a bettas genetic composition. And through selective breeding you can eliminate such traits while still keeping the positive traits that your bettas have. I have to say that even though an actual betta might have this topline trait, what bothers me just as much is that some people just can't see that the fish has it. Regardless of whether they find it a big deal or not. I'll stop talking now... :fish: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
