Thumbs up Doubletail x Doubletail Geno

So, Janey (DTg) and Mickey (DT) were placed together in a 10 gallon spawn tank, at 1pm on Tuesday. Wednesday they spawned at 11am, and since then the father has been caring for the nest. Since I know from last time... She gives you a butt-load of eggs So a few eaten eggs and fry won't matter!

Yes, I do know he is short bodied. Since this is a DOUBLETAIL spawn, heavy culling is going to happen anyways. Short bodies you can breed out... That's the easy part. The hard part is the actual finnage, having the caudal symmetrical is in itself a hard task. But it's doable I will probably breed F1 on, since doubletails are almost non-existent here.

Patiently awaiting tails.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

He has been carefully tending to his nest, flaring at anything else that moves, defending his precious nest

So, took the dad out. I am not sure if he ate a lot of the eggs/babies... So I took him out. He keeps moving the eggs everywhere so I have no idea where I am supposed to look xD I do see one jumping fry, waaaay in the back where I have no ability to check the nest -.- Little turkey... The Giant's tank is right next to it (with 4 inches in-between) so I can't peak in D:

Sorry Mickey!!

Bah!! I'm sorry Mr. Mom, if you had the nest where I could see it I would know there were HUNDREDS OF LITTLE TAILS x.x Whoops. Well... Now I have to be "dad" He is unhappy with me... And I don't blame him

Anyways... Pictures! Can you spot the hundreds of tails? -.-; All well... This will be a heavy cull spawn anyways. Any deformities, plus the wonkiest tails. Any GENOS I find I will be keeping, and if anyone wants them on here, you get first dibs. As for the actual DT ones, I'll be breeding the best from F1, and then have to bring in another single-tail to avoid major deformities in a third spawn. I might even bring in a dragonscale, if I can, and see what I can get ;D

Oh Wow. Looks like it could be another huge spawn! Can I reserve a couple of the better fry from this spawn?

Yes :p I am sure we'll have plenty to choose from xD If you want, I'll give you a geno if there is one. Since I learned DT x DT can only be one generation... Then DTgeno or single tail x DT is best. :p If you decided to breed that is.

Awesome. I did not know that about the DT geno. I swear that I learn something new about bettas every single day. Good luck with the fry Sena.
