  6. Hello peeps, For the newbie (like me) the world of fancy Bettas can be pretty confusing to begin with. There are many tail types, body types and colours types. There are three main types of Bettas; Standard long fin Bettas commonly referred to as Betta Splendens. Plakats which are a short fined version of Betta Splendens. And Giants, which as the name suggests are larger than common Betta Splendens. There are so many colour types available today it's amazing. Not only can you have solid coloured fish (fins and body all the one colour), you can have multi coloured fish, where the colours in the fins appear in bands, you can have multi coloured Bettas where both the body and fins different colours spread over them in no discernible pattern (and these colours can change and shift as the Betta matures), you can have fish with pale coloured bodies and deeply coloured fins, you have Betta with new scale types such as Metallics and Dragons. One thing that makes Bettas interesting is that they have four layers of colour to their scales. It's very complex to explain here, so I'm not even going to try. Metallic Bettas have a higher degree of iridescence on the scales that cover the bodies and spread over the fins. These Bettas are stunning and rarely seen in Australia Dragon Bettas are characterized by an exceptional thick iridescence layer on the body, so that the body scales take on a matt appearance while fins appear normal. It's not easy to describe a Dragon Betta. Red Dragons have a thick layer top layer of white scales over their scales, with what appears a red layer underneath. However yellow, blue and green dragons have a thick top layer on their scales that match their fin colours. Then things get real confusing when people cross and produce Metallic Dragons, or multi coloured dragons. Now we have the tail types. I'm just going to list them, but not provide a description for each. Sorry guys, but I'd be basically copying and pasting from other sources, and most likely infringing on copyright. The Veil Tail - the most commonly seen tail type in LFS. The Spade Tail The Doubletail The Roundtail The Delta Tail The Super Delta Tail The Half Moon The Rosetail The Feather Tail The Crowntail The Combtail To make things confusing here, you can have a double tail Veil Tail, or a double tail Half Moon. Not all tail types or colour forms appear in Plakat or Giant Bettas, but give it time I guess.
  7. Never kept flowerhorns before but wit the new extension coming together i have allowed a tank for a pair of these guys. So what i am wondering is what different types we get here. These are more for the mrs so the male needs to grow a hump and they need to be colourfull. As i know not much about these guy any help would be great. She found a photo of one so an ID would be great and if we can get them or not... Thanks heaps JP.
