I love my grandfather's fishroom! He loves wild bettas, particularly B. enisae, B. mahachai, and B. smaragdina. We also have a grandfather/granddaughter show project with the red and yellow plakats (see more here). Enjoy!
Thuan Nguyen, a local killifish breeder extraordinaire, was gracious enough to host the annual holiday Bay Area Killifish Association party at his house. We were all excited to check out his amazing killifish closet!
Taking photographs and video of the amazingly beautiful killifish ended up being quite a challenge, since most of the fish prefer darker conditions. I had to shoot most of it while holding a flashlight in my other hand! I am always impressed by how much beautiful iridescence just pops when you photograph killifish.
I had WAY too much fun making this little trailer lol. Much better than the boring fishroom tour I was going to make...although I still might make that one so you guys get a proper view of my fishroom set up. Enjoy!
I had a great time this last weekend hanging out with Larissa in San Jose!
Lots of breeding projects and fishy plans! :) I was able to bust out my camera and get some good shots (although I need to get a LOT better...)
Larissa has a bunch of Betta channoides of somewhat dubious sex sometimes. They can be very difficult to sex when you have females mixed in with dominant and subordinate males!
