Well, it's not really a case of having everyone agree on tail/colour. We all have our favourites. The most popular is HM. I prefer the Delta tail or super delta while some people don't like long tails at all. Really you're just best off going with a majority rather than having a unanimous vote.

I love every color and tail there is. Hence why my breeding program contains so many strains (as far as I know I'm the only person breeding more than a few strains).

The picture of the Half-moon Betta will be the father and I was looking for some pictures of Females you think would go nice with him. I was thinking a nice color of female. I'd interrupt the spawning after about 30 eggs so it can be a test spawn. I know people say not to interrupt but the problem is I can't have too many fish and I can't kill the fry. I'll choose a nice female and show you guys and see which one looks nice. It's always nice to have surprise fry because sometimes they turn out really nice.

I've been looking for a copper dragon lately. I don't care what tail type, though I would probably pick a Delta, Super Delta, Halfmoon, or Double tail, but I would love a Halfmoon Double tail the most.

A female with a copper or some purple would look amazing. It's rare if I come across purple bettas it seems. Maybe try to get a female with those traits?

So maybe one of your halfmoons with a betta similar to this either in color and/or traits:

I am not fussy about colour, as different colours strike me when I see them. I am new enough to the "serious" betta hobby that I'm not familiar with all of the available colour combos. I'm kind of like a kid in a candy store.

With finnage it's the same. I already have a crown, a rose and an HM. For me a "want" would be the combination of finnage and the colours that highlight it. I like butterfly with crowntail or halfmoon.

My big wish right now is a giant with HM or plakat. Colour? Dragon or butterfly. Marbles are nice too.

Before I get my giant I'm waiting for this guy to come from the transhipper:

Would the Crowntail do good with this female (He's solid red)? A black and red combo seems nice:


What female would go nice with the male Halfmoon that isn't Butterfly? I can't find any butterfly females on aquabid.
