Mortimer the Betta Fish

by Cindy Lou Bailey

Our metal prints are thin, lightweight and durable 1/16" aluminum sheet canvas. The high gloss finish enhances color and produces sharp image details. Each sheet has a 3/4" wooden frame attached to the back to offset from the wall. Prints have a wire or sawtooth hanger, depending on size selected.


A male Betta splendens
This is Mortimer (my pet Betta fish!) He is male Veil tail variation; he has extended finnage length and a non-symmetrical, drooping tail, with caudal fin rays that only split once. This beautiful tropical fish displays shades of cobalt, turquoise, violet, cerulean and touches of deep red. In a blue Veil tail, the top layer of skin cells is more concentrated with iridocytes, or iridescent pigment cells, so these cells appear as a vivid, shimmering blue.
