Small proportions. The bettas we would breed are both the runts of their "litter". No one has really recorded or documented anything like this in splendens so we would make it up as we go hahaha. If it does work it will take us a while to get stable genes. It would be pretty neat. We could also make a fortune.

NLS grow of course Turning Micro into Macro lol. When I drop off to you she will be jarred for her saftey. She has grown a lil thankfully since jarred and gets to be the cernter of attention for all the jarred boys showing off. You would not believe how they take turns doing "the strut" in the jars. Its funny to watch the little shows that go on in there.

Well we would need to work a long time on selecting the smallest of the spawn, the bettas are just rants they may or may not catch up, it would not be a deformity just a smaller betta, not stunted. we would select the smallest and start from there.
It will take a long time but will I believe be doable.
Anyways Teeney is not too tiny anymore.

The first spawn will probably have to be in the summer so that they are both mature! I believe it is doable. It's simple selective breeding. Just guessing here, but I believe it will work something like this-

1)MicroxTeeny. Two runts breeding together, average amount of runts expected.
2)Next few generations- number of runts goes up.
3)Almost all runts (f5?)
4)Decreased adult size
5)Smallest selected until we get small, stable bettas

So yea, it will take a while. And somewhere along the way we will have to outcross to another unrelated runt.

Btw bb123 are you spawning over spring break?

Yes I will spawn over spring break, either Venus and Jake or Marble and Peanut.
We will need to see but it will most likely be Marble and Peanut, they are both showing signs of being ready.

It would be pretty neat to have bettas like an inch in body length with the males having nice adult sized fins.

That would not be good as they would not be able to properly swim with such long fins.

+1. I will not breed extensively finned dwarf bettas. Sorry. Their fins will most likely be proportionate to those of a normal betta.

Sorry I worded it wrong. That is what a meant to say. As fry at 1 inch do not have their max size fins. But with this if it ever happens they would look like a small scale model of normal bettas.

They won't be fry though. Our adult fish will just be a small version of regular bettas. I thought you meant dwarf fish with the fins of a regular fish.
