X-factor fry. -sigh- The fish are sooooo pretty, though!

He does seem to wear himself out with his fins. He has to take little breaks occasionally when swimming.

Rosetails tend to have deformities in the offspring, like Short flowery caudals, bad misaligned or enlarged scaling and basically small dwarvish Bettas. I had a line of "to die for" Green Butterfly Halfmoons that I had trouble producing males from. I'd get 3 males out of a spawn of over 100. So I outcrossed to a Blue Butterfly Halfmoon. The Blue BFHM father had a couple wonky scales and very mild Rosetail effects so I thought nothing of it. Bad mistake. I got this mess.

Yeah, the first one was pretty colored but the finnage and scaling were horrible. The second ugly one, well; the Oscars didn't think either one of them were ugly.

If I can't find a nice CT female to go with Ciel #2, I might see what you have. :)

I quit breeding them a couple years ago because they didn't sell fast enough to warrant taking up tank space. I may just try again and see what kind of response I get. They seem to be growing in popularity.
