My pair of Betta uberis, along with their first group of fry were infected with velvet earlier this year. I suspect its cause was either temperature related or stress, but I can't be sure.
While I lost the fry, the pair have seemingly made a complete recovery. Good news when for a while there, I was concerned I was going to lose them both.
The two of them were meant to be separated, as the male is highly aggressive and spends most of his time chasing the female. However, yesterday he made a daring escape from the breeder box, and has spent today on his best behaviour.
Unfortunately, the above photo isn't great (its hard to get these two to stay still long enough to get a decent shot), but it does show off his stunning dorsal and anal fins. I swear they just seem to get longer each time I look at them.
Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, I currently keep and breed a number of species from the coccina complex.
