I'll probably go with 4 rays, since I have yet to see a 6 ray. lol

I'm thinking that I'll go with the marble gene. Since I thought that he was a blue dragon at first, I might try to add that into it. I could try for a marble that is a butterfly as well, since that gene/color scheme will be carried on, most likely.

Since I like his color, I think I might stick with the whole blue/green with the red underneath. I like it.

And, question, what do you think about this girl for breeding purposes? I can't see if she's got 2 rays or 4, but I believe that she might be a delta.

I like her! Nice long body which will balance his spine out very well. Dorsal doesn't meet the caudal but that's alright, yes she's 4 ray's and she may be a HM, you'll have to get her to flare to see what she really is. Anal is nice an short, ventrals are full and not split. I think she would compliment him well at least in the Form department haha

Well, she's my Naussicaš. :P I got her at walmart and I believe she's a HMEE. She's flared out completely before, but she hides a lot. She's really tiny, so I'll try to get her to grow nice. I think she's only 4 months old, TBH. I would love to breed them together. ^.^

Also, flared out, her dorsal and caudal are pretty even. It's her anal that's just a TAD longer than her caudal, but I think that's fine.

One more thing, she RARELY flares She's the sweetest betta I have in my sorority and she matches up with the sweet personality of my german blue ram. They actually tend to hang out together and it's so adorable. xD

Actually you'll want to keep her smaller than him so that he can wrap properly. If she's the same size or bigger he won't be able to wrap well around her. So small is fine and 4 months is great! You can spawn after the 3.5 month mark when they are sexually mature.

She might be partial EE but the pecs aren't long enough, at least not in this photo that I see. I also have a DT that has colored pecs but they aren't big enough to be considered an EE.

She'll probably flare when you put her in a cup and put her next to Fall Out lol, females generally only flare to other males except for the occasional feisty female

Yeah, her pecs got torn and bit in my sorority, unfortunately. She was pretty!

I'll try to make her flare sometime this week then. I won't be able to move him into his section of the 10g until Monday. I'll be sure to post pictures of both of them though. :P I would love to breed them, but mason jars cost soooo incredibly much around here and I would like to add more money to my PayPal account so i can go on Aquabid and buy some microworm cultures. I need to learn how to get infusoria growing too. I tried once before, but I think it failed since it was in the middle of winter. xD

You could buy a bunch of these: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Aqua-Cultu...allon/17248150

You can also use 2 liter soda bottles with the tops cut off! Here's a cute little site I just found lol http://bettacrazed.angelcities.com/breeding.html

Thanks! That's a great idea with the soda bottles. I think I might do that, since I have a lot of 1 liter water bottles. That should suffice, correct?

Yeah it should be alright, 2 liters will give them some more room though, might be easier to change too.

She's got two rays, bad form, and you will only produce veiltails or roundtails by breeding her.


If you are set on breeding your male I would look for a nice girl from a breeder.

And 1l is really small. I would go with 1/2 a gallon.
