I don't have a bank account or job yet, so it's kind of hard to make one. xD

If you want to keep the red dragon feature, you have to breed to another red dragon or something from that line. Chard's females looks great. Try to find a female with smaller ventrals and good fin overall.

I agree with what everyone else said. However, I don't agree with your statement about not breeding just because someone else tells you not to. The only time I can think this would apply is to my silliness is wanting to breed a rosetail, which I no longer want to do. He's a beautiful fish, so I'm not sure how he couldn't be breeding material.

He is a pet store fish, that's why I was hesitant

Here we go again! Pet store Bettas

I have on hand usually in the neighborhood of 2,000 Bettas. I have never in the last 5 plus years that I've gotten back into breeding and raising Bettas bought one single Betta outside of a Fish/Pet store. Although some of my lines are 8 to 10 generations (not inbred or line breeding) they are from the original Betta from Wal-mart or Petco or Petsmart. The Red Dragons I have are Halfmoon and breeding him with one will result in longfin dominating over shortfin in F-1 or the first generation. You will get a percentage of shortfin Halfmoons amd Traditional Plakats back in F-2. This is a picture of what I can do with pet store Bettas. As nicely as he looks now at 2 and a half months old he'll be going to the show next month. (My avatar is 7th generation originally from a Petco Yellow BFHM.)

When I do breed him in maybe 6 months or so, I know he will be a good nest builder. His nest is maybe 5" long and wide

LOL. Hey, if my rosetail male wasn't rosetail, he'd be one heck of a daddy. He tends to his bubble nest all day, every day. Even though he hasn't been with a girly.

Six months is a long time for a pet store betta, just because he could be 1.5 years old by then. But honestly, I see no issues with breeding pet store bettas as long as they are healthy and active. Sena hansler breeds mainly pet store bettas!

What's the problem with rosetails? Too heavy fins?

I was thinking all last night, what if I tried creating my own line of CTPK's?
