My first successful spawn

Hi all. This is Khai here from Malaysia. Been keeping fish for about 20 years now, but just recently became a betta fanatic.
Proudly sharing the 3 month fries of my first ever successful spawn. I've selected 5 of em to share with y'all:

OP is in Malaysia. I doubt a new breeder will export. But they look like VT to me.

Thank you. Father's a HM, female's a veiltail. I'm thinking of selling some of them off but maybe just locally.

Yes u are right, they are mostly VT. However interestingly, on the males I observe some caudal rays splitting to 4.

Thank you for welcoming me and for the compliments.

I actually just recently got a DSLR camera to take pictures of my fishes, and am very new in this type of photography. Still learning how to focus/adjust speed/aperture bla bla... :) The pics I post probably are the few decent ones ie. 1% of all the pictures I take. Bettas are just active fish and are a challenge to take photos of! Don't u agree?

I haven't really bred other types of fish, but I've kept probably a dozen (or more) types of fishes. I have had guppies and swordtails reproducing for generations but I don't really consider that I've "bred" them.

At this point I'm really serious about bettas. I currently have a super small spawn of red dragon plakats (1.5 months), a gold/dragon HM spawn (1 month). My newest project is a metallic dragon non-red HM spawn -I'm using the father as my current avatar- but I see it may not be quite successful as both the parents are too inexperienced.

Thank you. For this spawn, I have no clue who the breeder(s) of the parents are as I bought them from an LFS at two separate occassions. Never asked the shopkeeper, and I doubt he knows the answer anyway...
