I wasn't overall impressed with the wildcard spawn. I thought the fins were lacking Sherolyn's usual amazing fins. Not sure which of her fish just placed Best of Show in the OK show but I don't think it was a wildcard.

Hopefully the male will increase spread and add some branching.

I'm not going for show quality so I'm ok with that. I'm just excited to be giving it another go. Originally I thought I wasn't going to get another try at this for a few months but due to our lack of cash we're not going anywhere. Don't worry I already have everything under the sun for these babies so lack of cash isn't actually a problem :P

Ok here's a video. I actually still have them together. She's still chunky and got eggs but wont spawn. But their not biting each other or nipping. I'm hoping she'll go back to the nest and spawn some more. He still wiggles at her she just doesn't seem interested any more. But once again I'm hoping she'll go back. I guess until her fins start getting tore up I'll just leave them together. What do you guys think? They're not nipping each other and he still wiggles at her...

I agree. He isnt a bad candidate fora breeder. Im actually surprised that he is from a pet store. Im also surprised you got the female from a breeder. Its very opposite. He looks more like a breeder boy while she seems like shes supposed to be from the pet store.

The male really has changed and gotten pretty big. Very nice thickness and fin extension that you see. He almost looks like a way different betta. You did a good job by buying him and caring for him tk get back in good health.

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.
