Say I wanted to make roundtails in the future, well near future.
I found a few places that will take the fry but I won't have much profit at all.
The goal is a blueish black roundtail betta.
this kind of tail, is ideal of what I want.
The color, I am not really too picky about, though I want it to fall in the blues, to dark blue, to black range.
The VT female (from what I am told by the guy who orders the bettas) comes from a line of VT with rounded tails as a trait of thiers, and I seen her brothers and sisters, and they are the VT with the rounded vl oposed to the kina pointed or flat bottomed viel, all royal blue with red ventrils.
The PK male I have came from the same pet store, and he too,was joined by his brothers, who looked exactly like him. Black, with orchid coloring, and white tips on the ventrils.
So both of the bettas appearently came from lines, and hopefully won't throw random colors o.o.
What I want to know, is it worth it to start breeding with this pair,
(flash makes her appear way lighter colored.)
This was when I had first got her. remember? her and another in a cup?
I later found out that it was in fact, her brother O.O
So yeah, the guy that works at the pet shop wants some of the fry, and he said he can probably buy the fry back and sell them at the LPS after they get around 6 months old.
I relaize the big responsibility here,
btw this is close to what I really want to come out of these two bettas.
Even if I have to breed for a coupole of years, I want to make like a dark blue or black roundtail, that isn't viel enough for VT and isn't short enough for PK.
I think I have read that melano genes are lethal to female offspring, and also causes them to become infertile, so that is one factor that might get me.
