Merah Guppies, have you heard of them?
Man, as much as I like crowntail bettas, these guppies look like they're going to die to me.
Wow the blue and yellow merah was pretty cool but yeah, they do throw the effect that their tail's been caught in a filter intake. espescially how chunks are gone right down to the caudal peduncle. A bit disconcerting, really.
well i wouldnt buy them :).........but yeah they do look like they have just been in a fight with the filter hahahaha
They are neat. I really so no issue since like you said not really any different then a crowntail. I find it very interesting that the gene for the Merah tail is dominate over the gene for a normal tail. Usually traits like this are recessive.
But at least ct bettas have some webbing on their tails. I think what disturbs me is that there is none on some of the guppies. That tail would be completely useless to the fish!
I don't know, interesting idea but a little scary-looking to me. I do understand why some think it's cool though, not trying to dis anyone's gups :)
I agree the dominance of the gene is weird. I think they need some more selective breeding to make it look less like an accident
