I believe these are two of the different reds - cherry on top with the black, and blonde on the bottom.. two of my boys. There is a slight difference between the red color itself in life, but you can definitely see the black in one and the "blonde" in the other in life.. in the picture the cherry black one you can't see the black that well, unfortunately.

Isn't Pan sweety? He really is sweet too. I bought him labeled as a 'female betta' & he spent a couple weeks in my sorority as Pandora. The girls followed him around & when they started showing egg bands & in one case dropping eggs I had to start wondering. He never tried to make an egg nest & showed no interest in the ladies. I'm not sure he'd spawn for me at all. I thought with his caudal being uneven on the end he might not be the best choice either.


@ Mahsfish, thank you again. I thought his top line looked a little funny, but after you posted those other pics I wasn't sure. No offense taken on his coloration not being to your taste. I think he's absolutely stunning myself. Like you said though, we all have our own tastes.


Ok, so if I want to use Hades my best choice for a mate for him would be a hmpk. I think I can get a lady for him from the same guy I am going to get Ra's lady from! Since I already plan on putting in a large order with them (I need more than 7 ladies for my 29 gallon sorority) I'll try and get on for each then.




Looks like I am down to these two males. Any suggestions on colors for the ladies? I'd just like to see what others might like. The one I was looking at for Ra was a pretty sold darker red color. Here's the boys in question again.

First Ra, than Hades
my boy is ready if you go hmpk or pk there gonna bee nice these guys shoot out cherry reds red redblues black red orange red pineapple black black orchid and black devils

@ Myates, to my untrained eye at first look it looked like the same betta, but after awhile of comparing the two I can see the difference. Thank you for the example, seeing them so close in coloring will have me prepared to really look and figure it out with the next one.

@ titolation, I've been studying the spawning logs, I figured it was another good place to learn besides the great stickies on here. I'll be spending some time going over the logs you gave me links to next. I'm sure they will be great help. I'll likely be getting my ladies from Chard. I've already talked to him about it & he had some very interesting ideas on what I could do with Ra.

I just received 4 females from Chard that I picked out after winning the auctions for 3 of his males on Aquabid. The ladies are absolutely lovely--great form and size, very nice finnage, and awesome colors--you're definitely going to be extremely happy with any girls (or guys lol) you get from him!

I have no doubt about that Laurenie! Chard is great! I've watched a lot of his auctions on AB, although I have yet to bid on anything there. I'll be getting at around a dozen ladies from him before long. :) A couple for breeding and a bunch more to fill my sorority.
