Her caudal doesnt look too promising, but the male will balance her fins out so its not a huge deal. Also her anal fin is more rounded and longer that usual, but again, the male will do a perfect job at balancing her fins out.
Just from a fellow breeder's point of view.
Okay i have to say, this pair's colors are going tk make some very inferesting marble fry. I cant wait to see the outcome.
lol I actually asked MrV about the same fish yesterday before I introduced them. He said he's a not bad fish from a breeder's point of view too :P He's actually a pet store boy. I got him about 2-3 months ago and he was just a tiny thing, not a "baby betta" though. I got him half off because he had a fungal growth. I'll post a pic from when I first got him, you can see he's grown into quite a fish. And Popcorn is a genetic wildcard, all the breeder knew is her father, her mother must have came from a different breeder. She does have the double tail geneo along with a very light dragon scale
I have a local pet store that would love to have some offspring from the same city (save on shipping charges) so they've offered to buy any fish I cant find a home for myself. I plan on selling a few to friends and maybe keeping a couple but then it'll be out into the world. If i can even get them that far. I've had the worst luck with infertile eggs/egg eaters, and this is Dizzy's first spawn. I hope he'll be a good dada.
