I personally like his colors and overall form, so if u decide to breed him and can find a marble or "dragon" HMPK female, I think you can have some nice offsprings :)

Well I will consider it in the future :) Mom said I need to get a job to afford a breeding tank/supplies and another room to keep the tanks :P Is there a specific age that you should not breed a betta (cause he is too old)?

Gosh he is gorgeous!! He would definitely be considered a fancy marble! And watch out, marbling is unpredictable, I bet he's going to turn all sorts of interesting colors! I just love him!!

As for the flaring, some bettas just aren't all that aggressive and never really flare, he also may just need some time to settle into his new home and feel like its his territory and he needs to defend it!

And when it comes to breeding age most breeders won't breed fish that are over a year old. Though some have without any problems.

Well it's kinda hard to tell cos I think it's different for each betta, some are more "productive" than the other, plus we dunno his exact age, but as far as I know PKs are more productive and have longer "breeding age" than CTs or HMs or VTs , since they don't have to carry all those large finnage ( take a look at a very large HM or VT, most can't barely swim "properly" ). What I use to do when deciding whether a male is still "breed-able" or not, is observing his tank for bubble nest and how he moves, if he still produces large bubble nest and still move around with ease ( not "dragging" his tail ), usually he's still up to the task.
