Picasso - the marble CT


Recommended Posts

Well, we just thought his marble pattern was so cute and well defined.

And I like seeing pink in a fish. :lol:

I couldn't help scooping him up for $12.

We couldn't get him to flare for a photo but we have been using him to 'fire up' Louis in the breeding tank. And he sure flares then! So feisty.

He does look pretty impressive all stretched out, even though he has some ray curling etc. His other side has a bolder 'blue and pink stripes' section near his pectorals.

From the top, he looks like someone has just dribbled paint on him! :D

Mustard, pink, purple, blue, black and red also........His varied colouring and applique are deserving an appropriate title, like;

Mr rainbow-picasso or Sir crowntail-colourbomb. Nice fishy. - Brad. :drool:

Of course... let me just get him out to show you... oh wait, where is he?

Ninjas came in the night and replaced him with another fish!!!!??

Haha but I jest. He has changed a bit; his head black has pushed back towards his dorsal further.

I would love to breed him for his cool markings, but he has gimpy ventrals (thin and usually immobile). I need to do more research first to find out if his gimpy ventrals are a genetic thing or a nurture thing... Maybe gimpy ventrals are one stop short of the 'missing ventrals' phenomenon?

Poor old Louis' still looks pretty impressive even without a dorsal.

This is the best pic I could get to show you his pattern now. But look at all the extra webbing between his rays! He is my little OHM CT :D

Thanks Mitch. :D

Picasso cracks me and my bigger half up every 'exercise' time.

He goes crazy when he sees another betta and puts on a crazy, super agro display.... But show him a mirror and he bolts, terrified, and hides in a corner until the 'big scary betta' goes away... LOL!

actually a lot of my combtail juvies are marble. Tegan, do you want me to bring a couple of marble females to the next SBG and you can pick from them? If you want an actual CT female then I won't be offended :)
