Abstract

Evidence is provided for an undescribed mutation eliminating red pigment in Bettas. Genetic data suggest a recessive gene, symbolized "nr" (for non-red) is responsible. No evidence of linkage with the few previously described mutations in Bettas was found. Interaction with other color mutations provides an assortment of clearly distinguishable phenotypes.
