Yep my pair are both HMPK and I think both are dragon too.

Grats GT on spawn btw
I noticed that with ct females, they tend to be small in size and have larger stomachs than the average bettas. Also i would say to feed her a bit more than usual and then transfer her to a bigger tank. She sounds like a fry if I'm not mistaken.

Also GT congrats. Did they spawn today as well?

I hope you know what I mean.
Fixing a certain trade mark to your line .... I don't know about this one. I have never done this. As far as I know bettas cannot pass on marks indefinitely. These markings will eventually disappear or will not show in every single individual.

Maybe it is possible when using certain traits. Such as buterfly - making butterfly with milk white markings instead of clear (this is now very rare in my country). Or Dalmation - making every individual show some dalmation spots. But dalmation cannot be used as a trade mark since the pattern is unpredictable and many have dalmation in their line. .... who knows, maybe new "trade marking" mutations will one day appear.

BL yeah I placed her about 3 months max, she was tiny, so is the other CT girl I got same day. So I do feed them both well, and both are in nice tanks. I will be feeding her more now.

All I would advise is to feed well and a bigger tank environment which you said you are providing.

I also have this happening as well.i have a gift card so I am trying to get some nice tanks for them mostly dividers since I have plenty bettas and some betta containers that you stick in the tank with little dividers that come with it. They work really good!

Glad you got a spawn :D

Another trick to use in the future, cover the sides of the tank.. or use a 5+ gallon bucket with a low water level. Sometimes it's easier to get them to breed when there are no distractions outside of the tank, they focus just on each other. Also, the plastic buckets holds the warmth in much better then glass tanks.. can always transfer the fry to the tank later on, but if you are having troubles getting them to mate next time, I would cover up the sides or use a bucket.
Some just don't like to be watched when trying to be in the mood ;)
