Blue betta fish.
Need to go back to the past Thailand’s terrain is mostly river plains and has a hot and humid climate. Therefore, we can often see betta fish in the ponds along the fields. Betta fish have been in the Thai way of life for a long time. There is clear preliminary evidence.
For example The memorandum of the Adviser to the State Government in the reign of King Rama V, said that Since 1868
“Thai people like to raise betta fish for gambling widely. There is a large distribution source in the Sampeng area. And some of them can’t even be bought with hundreds of baht.”
We don’t forget that With the salary of knowledgeable clerk-level civil servants at that time was still only 20 baht per month, but the price of a single important betta fish Instead, the price was equal to the salary of a government official who had to work for many years to buy the fish.
And in that era, the color of betta fish was only red-black and green only.
Naturally, there are two types of base colors: Red-Black and Green
Red is the base color and the dominant gene, if the inbreed is duplicated it will show the recessive gene as follows charge.
And green as the basis. If the inbreed is repeated, it will show the recessive genes as follows.
At this point, we know that that blue betta In fact, it is a recessive gene from the former green color itself. Blue betta fish are now bred by breeders to become a stable pedigree color. It is blue without black soot or red on the fins, mainly to meet the market demand.
And as for the the veiltail betta, it is an evolution from these wild bettas starting with the spade tail and changing until it has a longer pointed tail. Also known as Veiltail.
When we understand the nature of fish color preliminary. It will be easier to understand the next content.
History of blue half moon Blue betta fish.
Please read the above article to understand it first. because if you don’t read It will be very difficult to understand the next.
At the same time, Halfmoon is basically not a real betta in the region of Thailand. There is a breeder named Loong Moo who imported the green half moon betta from USA during the year 1999-2000.
and has brought this green halfmoon betta fish to be intertwined with the blue Veiltail betta that has a stable bloodline. which is a real Thai fighting fish together.
and the results Often very disappointed Because it is a young fish that has both green and blue and a little red mixed in the fins. And the tail is mostly Delta Super Delta, which is caused by cross breeding and the imported green color is not stable genetic.
Loong Moo has developed and brought this set of fry in breeder together. By selecting the fry that have many broken tail shaft characteristics similar to Half moon, but not quite Halfmoon because the angle of the tail is lower than 180 degrees.
It has been developed continuously until it is a half moon with the perfect color for us to see until now.
