A Malayan friend of mine caught some for me a few months ago and gave them to me, though only one pair survived their long journey. They are doing wonderful and I have now a tank full of young F1 looking just like their parents except they don't have their red bodies yet. This fish is uniformly red without the white flecks like the Kuantan strain, are very slender and elongate. CHK; can you upload a photo for me (please mail your address to stefanhome at ilse dot nl)?

An interesting feature I haven't seen or heard of before in any other species was observed in females: on their flanks they have two narrow horizontal red bars.

Saw the red bars in a juvie too! Either way; I try to bring all my F1 to the IGL meeting April for distribution.

Been extra feeding them with beefheart; they really, really like it! Was just an experiment.

I can't....my own pc is down (awaiting a new MoBo) so I can't access any of my own data :( Do you still have them in your mail perhaps? I sent them to you a couple of weeks ago, can't remember what address though....

Here are the parents (wild). Normally they are a lot redder - I didn't have them long when these photos were made. The fins are also a little longer (they've grown since then) and of course on the photo they show some damage from fighting.


Male


Female (note the red stripes)

As I said; I'll be bringing the F1 to the IGL but I'm curious; is there interest by anyone in these fish? Otherwise I'm bringing them in for nothing.

They're different form the Kuantan strain at least in: the absence of the white flecks in he fins, a uniform red body and fin colour. Don't know how they're different from the Rompin strain besides that the latter is more orange than red. - I've never seen that strain; only heard about it. Would love to see it once.

No one is interested in obtaining these fish?

The juvies are doing very well; they do nothing more than eat and flare; a pretty sight. I hope a nice large population will come from these!

Hallo Stefan!

Wie machen sich Deine Betta tussyae "Chukai"? Würdest Du welche auf die Herbsttagung mitnehmen können?

Grüße aus Wien,

P.S.: noch mal Danke für die B.persephone-Erstbeschreibung!

Keine dank!

Hallo zusammen,
die sehen gar nicht aus wie Betta tussyae. eher wie Betta rutilans. Eigendlich nennt man Betta tussyae auch Streifenkampffisch.
Gruss, Michael
Sorry, aber mein Englisch ist very bad!!!!!

Stimmt, was Michael anmerkt. Die tussyae, die ich in Kuantan und Cherating fing (und seit langem halte) waren schon anders in Statur und Färbung. Der hier sieht tatsächlich B. rutilans ähnlich.
Andererseits ist der Unterschied häufig nur in der unterschiedlichen Stimmungsfärbung gut zu sehen.
Ich habe mal ein einzelnes tussaye Männchen zu einer Gruppe rutilans gesetzt, in der Annahme es sei gar kein Problem es wieder "rauszukennen". Anfangs war es das auch nicht, denn es zeigte in Aggression immer (im Gegensatz zu rutilans) seine Streifen. Später hat er sich das abgewöhnt (warum weiß ich nicht). Ich hab ihn dann doch gefunden und rausgefangen, aber es war ein Problem.

They are definitely tussyae; trust me. They were wild caught in Chukai, Malaysia. There are 3 strains of tussyae which all look a bit different. I've had both Kuantan and Chukai and the superficial differences are quite large. But also having seen rutilans numerous times they are nowhere near similar.
