I think the easiest way would be to get a group of people working on this at the same time. Someone that would document progress closely. :D

If you thought I was accusing you- I wasn't. I never got any idea that you do/want to try this from your question. I was just answering how this works out. :)

6 breeders working 2 pair each and trading fish every after inbreeding 6 times, with the asumed goal being a 1/8 smaller after every F6 this goal could be reach in about 15-20 years.(if nothing gose wrong) maybe sooner but to make a new strain and not just a few realy small bettas i think its the fastist it could be done.

Ther is nothing on tv... time to watch the fish tank. Bettas hours of fun.

Olypmia, no I didn't think you were accusing me. I have seen some people on this site sadly enough get an idea in their head and run with it even when the person is trying to explain that isn't what they meant. I felt I had better air on the side of caution now to stop any of that.

This is a wonderfully thought provoking conversation and I would hate to have it ruined because of such ^_^.
