So I figured I'd start a thread for my pet store bettas I'm breeding. I've already been conditioning the boys and girls for about two weeks and my new brine shrimp babies are almost ready to be made into a sustainable culture.
These two pairs are being bred for a local pet store who I have thoroughly checked out; they really know their stuff and they have the cliental to get the fish out there in the right homes.
The first pair is my male HM Hephaestus, and my female VT Aphrodite. Hephaestus is marbled with green, red, white, and some other splashes. Aphrodite is marbled purple. I'm aware of the overflowing amount of VT fry I'll get from this breeding, but since they are going to a store and to my own personal VT breeding program, I don't mind. I'll be putting Aphrodite in Hephaestus' view at the end of this coming week. Really excited about these fry, I think their colors will be beautiful!
The second pair is my male DT Uther and my female VT Halia. Uther is mostly a lovely navy blue, with white ends on his fins, and Halia is mostly blue/dark purple with red streaks in her fins. I don't have good pictures of this pair yet. Hoping for a few DTs, but healthy and colorful VTs is fine too. I'll be putting Halia in view of Uther after Aphrodite has been removed from Hephaestus' tank.
I'll keep you all as posted as possible, and for you all I'll give you up to 4 fry from either spawning for free if you pay shipping (since I know you'll take good care of them). Reserve now because the first dozen to two dozen of these spawn are claimed by the Fish Nook (the store I'm selling them to).
