If you could breed a line of bettas, what would it be?

I'm just curious. I know chances are there are lots of people who'd like to breed bettas and make a line with certain colors, finnage, etc., and are either working towards making the perfect bettas or are only dreaming.

So, what would your line be? What would you do to make it the way you want to to be?


The line of my dreams would be a pearly soft green masked halfmoons. If I could, I'd try to breed larger sized halfmoons to larger (not quite giant) plakats in the begining for good strong rays. Then, I'd work for the green color. Then, if I'm lucky, I'd try to get some less extreme rosetails from some spawns, because rosetails are typically more pastel in color and small in size, they'd be pastel green, and roughly regular sized. Then, I'd breed the rosetails with regular siblings and hope and pray one of the fry is pearly and pastel, with good scales and normal fins.

I want several different lines.

I'd like to breed HM Blues (also known as irridescents), HM or HMDBT Extended Reds, Multi-color Marble HM (ones with white bases and ones with black). Melanos (HMPK, HM, or HMDBT), Multicolor Giant HMPK, Marble Giant HMPK, Black Dragon HM and HMPK with completely black fins, Multicolor HM (like Sid).

My dream line would be purples (HM of course) but I'm not going to even consider experimenting with them until way in the future.
