Hello all, I'm new here

Hello all, just wanted to introduce myself. I have kept bettas since I was a teenager, and was hoping to get into breeding them again. Not to make myself sound too old, the last time I was into breeding bettas, crowntails and doubletails did not exist, and the fanciest colors one could hope to find in your local fish store were maybe a nice cambodian or if you were real lucky, maybe a butterfly pattern.

I currently have a few crowntails that I am interested working with. I bought some females from work (I work a few days a week at a very large independently owned pet store here in sunny San Diego). The gold female I have is my avatar, I also have a blue marble-ish female that lives with her. I also recently purchased a couple of powder blue with white and red males (in separate living quarters, of course). They are all young, and I am working on conditioning the boys, as well as getting one of my baby tanks ready for them. I'm working on getting some good pictures of them to post

I am so excited to find this site! There are so many beautiful fishes that you all keep, and so much information here, it will keep me busy for a while.

I did have a question to start with, is there a page on here that would have some basic information on what traits in bettas are dominant and which are recessive?

Welcome! I, too, have been amazed by the new morphs of bettas available after returning to the hobby. :)
