Thanks~ I ended up with around 80 males and 30 females. 20+ have been given away to family and friends. I have no immediate plans to continue this line...I'm debating if I should because their parents are simply run-of-the-mill petshop bettas. Dad costed me only RM4 (USD1.25) and mum, RM2.50 (USD0.80)..they're practically FOC, haha. You can see the parents' form in my 1st post..they're nothing to shout about. ^^; I guess I was just lucky to get a variety of nice-looking offspring..even then, they're nowhere near show quality where I live (and not exactly commercially viable). xD;

But anyway, if I were to breed them siblings, which do you think I should pick? I'm leaning more towards the Cambodian Butterfly (1st pic), Pastel/cellophane and then the Black Orchid. They're less common.

I actually have a new pair of Red Dragons which I'm trying to breed now. The father recently ate most of the eggs...lol. So much headache and heartache. I may just switch back to my beloved CTs, shrugs.

The pics are taken with an iPad 3, btw. I think it rivals a DSLR. ^^

They are absolutely stunning. It just goes to show you, petstore fish CAN produce some nice spawns.

I guess it's because most pet store betta are genetic messes. Considering the parents' colours and what they produced.
