I've been admiring the guy in your avatar every time you post, so if you're in the US, I would probably like one or two of your babies. :D

I would say that you are set! I'd recommend the first female, but either would work. The first female just is generally better to me. Just better shape, color, all around. :)

I think that breeding is a great experience as long as you are serious about it and know what your doing.

For colours, they're great multi colours and you would produce similar multi's with either one.

I hope you try breeding, it's great experience. Good luck.
Thanks! ^^

Thanks for the input : P I will most likely put up a thread for adoptions if all goes well ^^

Hi Mango
You may want to read through the submissions on this forum: http://ausaqua.net/forum/lofiversion/index.php?f27.html
Bettas are critiqued to IBC standards so you'll learn quite a bit on body an fin conformation from these experts.

Thanks for the link! I have read a bit about the IBC standards but have wanted to see them being "applied" so this will help a lot. : P Is anybody allowed to post on the betta critique forum, or is it limited to those who actually plan to show bettas in the future? I know my bettas aren't perfect but I wouldn't mind critique for some more insight. : P

You can also join an IBC club near you (if there are any). I'm a member of the Georgia club and its really nice to have people locally. A lot of the time you can get stuff like food cultures or plants for free or really cheap from club members. Most of the clubs also hold shows throughout the year which is a great place to get fish!

There are a few clubs (Like the Midwest Betta Society) that don't have meetings so even people who don't live in the area can join and discuss bettas on the yahoo group.

You can look for a group by going to www.ibcbettas.org and looking under the chapters section.

LOL... I'm from Virginia but I live in Georgia now If you live close to Sacramento there is a really big betta society out there. They just held their show recently. There are some really great breeders out there. I think the club name is the California Betta Society (CBS).
