These are some photographs of my F1 Betta miniopinna and their parents. This pair came from Hermanus Haryanto at the start of the year. Although I do also have a second pair from Joty Atmadjaja.
As these photographs show, this species is very similar in appearance to Betta persephone. They used to be an extremely difficult species to source, but of late, they seem to have made a re-emergence in the hobby.
Admittedly, they are not one of my favourite species from this complex, but they are one that I have been after since I started keeping wild bettas. Their colouring also does make them unique in this complex of predominately red fish.
Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, I currently keep and breed a number of species from the coccina complex.
