Fancy Spawn 2

Fancy Spawn (part 1): Fancy Spawn

It has been a long journey from Fancy Spawn (1) preparation to this today. I am pleased to introduce to all betta fans my second spawn (fist spawn is now 7 weeks and 5 days Thai-Viet-Malay plaket).

The couples are:
Male, Fancy King, from Junglist. Here is the video shows some of his sons. Many of you Here is the video shows some of his daughter.

Female, Fancy Koi, from Thai bettas.

Here is the video of the newly wed couple

Please watch the video and let me know if you think these couple are too aggressive for breeding? I saw both male and female try to attacking one another whenever I lift up the red cover.

Below are picture of the future parents:

It is a bad idea to breed too bettas that are that different.

I was thinking about the same thing. Thank you for bring it up to the front of my thinking. I may have to wait for new male then. The problem is that female is giant it is hard to find her a mate. As I am posting this the male is so busy making bubble nest.

Hi Ken,

I am not sure but I think because the female is Marble and male is Grizzle? Are they ok to breed? You are definitely know better than me. Also do you see the video? Are they too aggressive to one another? I saw them bite the divider when the red cover lifted.

I love giants if you breed two different colors and breeds you get all sorts of different breeds and colors from the spawn. If you are okay with that continue. I do not keep giants though.

The behavior looked normal too me they were trying to spawn and could not access each other. Remember after spawning the female has to leave quickly.

They are not to differnet to breed imo... You will not produce any giants unless the female is carying the giant gene in her. But breeding back offspring to the father would produce some rather nice marbled giants. The male isnt much to look at form wise but that female would help create better form. And what is your conditioning like for the male and female? I have had agressive males before and I have learned that you have to treat them a little differnetly before they can be bred without killing the female acidentally.

I think the OP did not want to have to be breeding them back.
