Macropodus spechti “Royal Blue”

8. March 2024

We have again received a nice number of beautiful domestic offspring of this extraordinarily beautiful black paradise fish (Macropodus spechti “Royal Blue”). For the history of this variant see

In the meantime, the fish have been further developed in terms of breeding and are preferably bred with animals that – very similar to Belontia signata – have many extended fin rays in the caudal fin. Both males and females show this characteristic. It is very similar to the crown tail of Betta splendens.

For our customers: the animals have code 425613 on our stocklist. Please note that we only supply wholesale.
