Black-metallic black double ray crowntails

So I'm going to start this log up now.

Breeding Dag, the DRCT male (not sure on his colouring. Black with metallics? Crazy-Town?) to B

Sire



Dame


The breeding tank is set up and cycled, plants at the ready, more plants to be added.

This is, strictly speaking, a fry test run but I'm still managing to hold on to some hopes for the offspring. BBS hatchery is set up directly next to the breeding tank and the grow out tank is ready directly below it.

that pretty little lady is one hot mama...
dare i say if the male isnt a sibling of the female, he might be out of her league. ;)

so you're trying to aim for metallic blacks? multicolored metallic or solid? sounds really cool. male looks like he's got some decent irridescence, maybe from a green/turquoise line. hard to really tell since he looks different in both pictures. looks like he might be non-red as well.

looking forward to what happens next!

I think he is a sibling. You should see her stomach, it's like a little balloon all the time. I'd have thought she was constipated but she eats well and I've seen her expelling fine enough. I think she's still a little egg laden from when he was on the other side of the divider.

Haha! Kind of funny how you didn't expect to receive him with your order of girls, called him dag, and now you're breeding him. He's a pretty boy and I'm not a fan of crowntails.

Well I never said I didn't want him, just that he was unplanned for. An unplanned male betta is a massive scramble.

Introduced the pair. She spent five minutes whooping his butt, he spent about the same whooping hers. She's hiding under an IAL and he's building a bubble nest under one that is floating nearby.
