So I think I'm ready to jump into the whole breeding journey. Still on the fence but I have all supplies (have for months) and finally brought in a pair of halfmoons that are young enough to spawn. My original spawn idea was my Spidey, and his siblings Tatsu and Kaida. Spidey and Tatsu both passed about a month ago, Kaida is still with us. But I decided to pick up another male, and two females from the local breeder. Only reason I am thinking of attempting this time is because I NEED females BADLY and our store is sold out. The last shipment of Bettas all died overnight and they don't plan on getting more in for at least another month. So, I am figuring I will raise a spawn, keep the females and find suitable homes for the males. To obtain this unrealistic goal with a fish that potentially produces 100+ fry, I'll be using the method of tough love, so only the strongest survive hopefully cutting my numbers to 25-30ish should the spawn be large.
So for my male... Sammy. He's a product of a Blue MG Dragon HM/Blue MG Dragon HMPK spawn. Male by Patsayawan x female by Siribetta. I also have his spawn sister, but no photo yet but she's a Blue MG HM.
And my other female is a product of a Blue Dragon BF HM x Blue Dragon HM spawn. Both parents from Aquastar71.
So yeah, figured I would share :) I hope this time I am able to spawn these, as before I didn't have much time with the foster cats. Now that I have no fosters, it will be nice to use my second bathroom (own heat control) as a fish room for these guys :) And also, my choice on the male was limited. I had a beautiful boy lined up (spawn brother) with a poor anal fin but an amazing spread but sadly he jumped ship. I was sent the only male that looked like him, I didn't get to pick. I notice many flaws with Sammy, but it will be a personal spawn that I will keep anyways :)
