No kitten, I was in Missouri. I lived in Hollister and Branson for 20 years. After being forced to sell my mobile home in Hollister I moved to my property in Harrison, Arkansas. Where in Missouri are you?
I thought I was going nuts but I found them. The pictures were on my computer and had not been uploaded to my photobucket albums. Looking at the male you wouldn't think anything but maybe a little too much branching in the caudal fin. But spawning it to one of my females with only 4 ray branching you'd think would be ok. NOT!
Hey, I posted the examples of your rosetail fry on a FB group (lonestar bettas) after someone mentioned wanting to breed a rosetail. Now someone wants to know if they can use your pics as examples themselves. They said they can take your name off the pics (I had edited your name and the forum url onto the pics for credit's sake) if you'd like. They asked me to ask your permission, though.
