So how can you tell if the female has a better body line? Also, how can you tell if the true butterfly line is there? When does it become too late to breed them?

I've heard not to breed store Bettas because you're not sure what you'll get. But these fish are so nice, is it worth it?

This is a female butterfly with a great crisp butterfly line
And this (below) female has a really nice body line

Before they are a year old is a great time to breed them because they have lots of energy, as they get older it gets gradually harder to breed them but in my experience they are never "too old" to breed, theres nothing wrong with having an old boy that knows what he is doing and does it well, instead of a young boy who has never bred before!

So I defiantly want to breed him. Maybe at the start of August. I'm gonna feed them brine shrimp, infusoria, egg yolk and hopefully microworms. Maybe it can be my test spawn. Well I have to start up the website to sell them anyways and that should give me enough time. I think I'll go online and get a quality female of the suggested color.

I think thats a good idea, maybe try aquabid, they do some good ones, search butterfly betta's and it should bring up some nice results, if you find any but you're not sure about them just let us know and we will try and help as much as possible :) also, possibly try to find an OHM butterfly betta, as this will improve the chances of getting fry with the HM spread!
