Greetings from Italy

Postby gamgam » Fri Aug 30, 2013 12:27 pm


I'm Matteo from Italy. I have been an IBC member for three years now, and I'm part of Associazione Italiana Betta: a Betta club in Italy (Europe, which means Area2 for the IBC).

I just posted a couple of pictures of my Betta unimaculata spawning. I like mouthbrooders but I'm also breeding Betta splendens and showing them in the european circuit. I'm not a great breeder, but I have at least a good line: a classic solid iridescent one which is at the fifth generation and gave me some good Show plakats and Halfmoon shortfins and a few Halfmoons (I crossed the Show Plakat line with an Halfmoon female in order to increase simmetry and have some Halfmon shortfins).
Last spring I worked on some Veil Tail mustard gas. I'd like to see more veil tails at the shows. IMHO It's not an easy fin shape at all if you wanto to have very clean and harmonic forms
