I've heard of it happening in bettas, so it's probably more common than one would think. She is absolutely gorgeous though!!

20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank

2, 5.5 gallon tanks that are currently empty (I see more fish on the horizon )

135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
