[MUST BE ADULT TO USE THE BELOW INFORMATION]
Category Archives: Betta
I’m getting everything lined up for the next beta experiment. The next test will be entitled the “beta gamma control group study on cannabinoids and beta fish mutations and longevity” as soon as all my tanks and substrate and decorations arrive, I’ll set each tank up identically and wait for the plants to sprout. At the beginning of the year, I’ll get 2 male betas (must each have their own tank and be blocked from sight of other male), and 10 beta females so I’ll have a control group and an experimental group. The only variables will be the fish themselves and if they are being treated or not. I hope this research has value one day.
I’m setting the fish back up at the beginning of the year. I just ordered 3 more aquarium for a control group of male and female betas and a group that gets oil. I’ve nearly got all my supplies together to start setting up the tanks. I’m also Gonna get some asexual snails and see if there are differences in reproductive rates in the snails between the treated and non treated tanks.
I like the beta fish experiments. It’s going to be hard on me watching the untreated ones passing away around the 6 month mark. I’m going to use December for all the supplies to get here and to plant the live plants then, just after the first of the year when the plants have sprouted and the tanks are steady I can go get the fish and snails. Starting in January helps people easily count how long the fish live.
Mutated fish? Your fish look beautiful?!
The deformities sometimes become less pronounced. The point of the experiment is the longevity of these mutant fish with a short life cycle due to their mutations. I’m getting them to live almost as long as Betas unmutated. It’s about increasing life and quality life. You can tell the fish are healthier after just a few days home from the store with oil started.
Usually they are kept in such small containers they can barely swim against a current when I first get them. It’s sad the beta trade. Most of the fish on pet store shelves are mutants they would never breed due to deformities.
The breeders keep the healthy betas from each brood to mate, with broods of 500 eggs or more there are plenty of mutants to be had especially since humans have been playing with their genes for centuries as fighting fish to bet on similar to cock fights in the Deep South.
They have curls on their fins and just look different from their fellows. Often their fins are oversized and flop over. Their proportions are just off. I had to do a lot of research on betas to be able to spot what’s normal and what’s not between the many beta subspecies. It really can be hard to tell, as you have seen I try to pick specimens that are beautiful and mutated. So people can see the beauty in mutation not just its negative effects.
Like me. I’m perfectly formed except for the tumors but am a major mutation. I’m tiny, but I’m also told I’m beautiful and worth extending the life of. I’m trying to prove the same point about these fish. I believe I’m ahead of my Time and some day we may dump Cannabis oil at specific locations of the oceans around the world to help them heal from what we’ve done to them. I’m also asking a fundamental question… In the absence of a creator, why would fish that likely only naturally have contact with the cannabinoids if a bud fell in their pond or whose roots were in their pond. I believe most all animals have an endicanabbinoid system, why? Because we were all intended to benefit from a holy plant.
And that theory makes sense if you believe that we were brought here from elsewhere in the galaxy. Wherever we first developed, Cannabis was important or else the creator beings would not make so many animals and plants susceptible to the compounds of the plant.
We’ll see what the experiments bear out with having females around and a control group to prove my point about increasing longevity with cannabinoids. I just hope this research benefits someone or something someday. I’ve funded the research entirely on my own.

THIS IS NOT A JOKE! THIS IS NOT AN ATTEMPT TO GET A FISH HIGH… this is GUERILLA RESEARCH on MUTATIONS
Meet Makara Mach II and the betta beta test. A while back I got a Betta fish only to sadly find that the very quality that drew me to him was a mutation of the breed (some curls that went all the way around on his dorsal fin).
This mutation dooms the fish to an even shorter than usual fish life and most serious breeders would never breed a betta male with this trait. I treated that first betta with drops of cannabis infused coconut oil once every 3 weeks and that fish outlived what the estimated expected life span for this mutation. Had I known it was going to work so well I would have documented the first test better. THIS IS A HIGHLY DILUTED FORM OF WHOLE PLANT (THC INCLUDED) CANNABIS OIL! IT DOES NOT TAKE MUCH TO MEDICATE A FISH! REGULAR TANK MAINTENANCE IS A MUST!
Here are some images and the above video of Makara Mach II of the betta beta test. We found another betta male. This male had the curl on both the dorsal and caudal fins. He has already been with us for some time but I didn’t want to unveil him before he got acclimated to his new enclosure and survived the trauma of the initial trip home from the pet shop. We also gave him some glass shrimp as tank cleaners. He only allowed the smartest one to live initially, then he killed them all off for cleaning up his bubble nest. We got him a snail to use as algae eaters he can’t kill. The ghost shrimp were there to clean his poo and to see if the cannabinoids have any effect on the tank mates. I’m keeping a field journal so I will have all the info on my method this time. Cannabis can even help mutant fish if you know what you’re doing.
Mach II of the beta Betta test reached 1/3 of his expected lifespan on 3/15/2015 for the mutations he has. That day, I changed his water again and gave him his allotment of cannabinoids onto the filter.
Untreated, I would expect him to live as many as 4 more months.
This lucky dude has been getting 3 drops of coconut oil infused with cannabinoids every two weeks along with his filter change, and water cleaning/care. He is thriving!
Although, initially there was no change in his fun curling, Now I see and can believe the cannabinoids have made him a much more robust specimen than he would be had I left him untreated. I’m studying the effects of cannabinoids on mutated fish.
A second video on Mach II
Here Is Mach II on day one… he was just getting used to having space. He was in a truly tiny container when when bought him.
Mach II got a much bigger place to exercise first of all. And in addition to my cannabis oil treatment, I have kept his tank in the best condition one can including ph testing his water and giving him living plants.
2 Days Later he was much more acclimated to his new home and began trying to display for us. Note the curling on the lower fin and the drooping dorsal fin. These are the defects that may have caused other betta lovers to pass him up. I took him home and gave him loving care instead based upon my last experience with a betta with similar (though less severe) mutations. I’m documenting this case carefully. I didn’t take notes for the last fish who got this treatment. With all the changes to the world on a climate scale, maybe my research might be important and built upon one day.

Update July 7, 2015
Mach II has exceeded life expectancy for his mutations. Today, Mach II got some new tank mates. We added 2 zebra snails and 5 ghost shrimp to help clean the tank. He likely will eventually kill all the shrimp, but they clean his tank in a way I can’t even if I drained all the water and cleaned it (something I do on a regular basis). Each and every time I’ve done anything more than feed Mach II has been carefully documented.
