Re: copper plakats
I think we first have to decide if B. imbellis is a species on its
own, or just a variation on B. splendens. There are conflicting
opinions floating around.
Regardless, I think most of the copper genetic makeup is Betta sp.
Mahachai. And given the limited number of true sp. Mahachai floating
around, I think it's a scary thought.
On a similar note, I have seen VT B. smaragdina. Now where does that
one go once we forget that VTs are banned from competitions ?
BTW, my coppers spawned about 3 weeks ago and babies are doing great.
Parents are larger than initially, but still shorter than the average
sized plakat. Female got much darker and has a clear purple hue. If
anyone wants to borrow them for some spawning, drop me an email.
