Warna Cupang Mustard Gas

Submitted by on 21 June 2010 – 09:44

Saya sempat salah menuliskan Mustard Gas (MG) dengan ejaan master gas. Ya, yang betul adalah Mustard Gas, untuk menyebut cupang berwarna bicolor dengan perpaduan warna hijau atau steel blue pada bodynya dan warna kekuningan atau orange pada sirip-siripnya. Dalam sebuah literatur disebutkan bahwa Mustard Gas original untuk pertama kali dipopulerkan oleh breeder bernama Jude Als.

Disebutkan pula dalam literatur tersebut bahwa MG original digunakan untuk menyebut cupang hias dengan perpaduan warna hijau pada bagian body, dengan warna kuning dan hitam. Berikut petikan dari literatur yang saya singgung.

The term "Mustard Gas" was originally coined by breeder/hobbyist Jude Als to describe his particular line of multicolored bettas. The original Mustard Gas bettas were green-bodied fish with variegated bands of blue or green, yellow, and black. In 1999, Als added a band of white as well, developing certain specimens of Mustard Gas into a four-banded butterfly, the colors of which were never clearly separated, but rather run together, creating an effect that looked like gas to its creator.

In the late 90’s, Als sold some of his Mustard Gas fish to other breeders, some of whom outcrossed the line, but retained the strain name. Therefore, the modern Mustard Gas fish is, today, so far removed from Als’ original vision as to be a completely different color/pattern combination. (Victoria Parnell, 2007)
