It seems that my Betta miniopinna pair spawned earlier today. The male is now carefully tending to a nest of at least a dozen eggs, and I hope that not only are the eggs fertilised, but that the adults don't predate any resulting fry.
I am particularly interested in comparing the difference in the development of colour between my Betta persephone and Betta miniopinna. The two species are so close in appearance that I am curious to see whether the fry themselves share these similarities, and whether the development of the darker colouration on the fins follows the same path.
Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, I currently keep and breed a number of species from the coccina complex.
