Fancy Spawn

First day introduction of my fancy pairs for breeding. The male has many color: Orange, Red, Green/blue, White, and some black. Female has yellow, orange, green, platinum stuff. I hope they will be ready for September breeding.

The female is beautiful.
What are you trying to achieve with this spawn, Tan?
The male has a few weak points if your wanting to improve finnage for show.

Hi Vicky,

How are you? I have four simple goals:

1. I like to have many betta babies live together peacefully and swim around the tank. I love to watch betta.

2. I love colorful betta with spots. The more color and spots the more I like.

3. Master my breeding techniques, hopefully in the next 2-3 spawns.

4. How to organize and effectively use spaces for all of my bettas.

After I have mastered these goals, I will invest more money and learn how to improve finnage/color/form for show. Hopefully I will go to the show sometime too. I was good betta keeper when I was teen. Back then they were all fighters.

I wouldn't breed that male, IMHO, especially to that female.

OK, I will value 2 expert opinion. Stop this condition. Search for new male. I still love the male color that I currently have. I do not have any other male to mate with my current female.

James, do you really like the female I got there?

I like her coloring, but if you are breeding to get HMPK, you should try to find a girl with a full 180 degree spread. She is only a 4-ray, which won't spread to HM so will be considered super delta or delta.

Where do you get your bettas from?

The female is slightly better than the male, however I really wouldn't use either for breeding. You should have a specific goal in mind, and search hard for a good quality pair that will get you to your goal. Your goal is marble, right? There are plenty of marbles, both male and female, that are of much higher quality than these two on Aquabid.
