New Mint Dragon HMPK Line

Hullo there.
And happy mother's day to everyone. :D

The last few days I've been working out a great deal with a breeder who has developed a green and black dragon line. I absolutely love the look of these fish, they are blue-green with bold branching, giving them a "minty" look. I've decided to import all the stock he has available of this color- 3 males and 1 female. Some of you may have seen a picture of one of the males, he has a flat nose. Can't say I've ever seen one like him before. At first I didn't want to buy him, but in the end his transfixing colors compelled me to get him. (The breeder practically gave him to me, he knew I was on the fence about him.) The other two males show promising form and striking colors. They could certainly use work in straightening some of the branches, but I believe they will render some stunning fry with the right girls.

I'm excited about this line. I can experiment some with my superblacks as well to try to develop more contrasting colors. See images of the imports below. :)












I'll be keeping an eye out for a few more females that carry similar colors, but for now this is all I could get my hands on. xD


Here are some examples of siblings from the same spawn. Unfortunately they were purchased before I could get to them. ._.








Spawn updates to come!

Great looking fish!

Though it looks like some have some red wash on the anal. Gotta work on that. Very stunning color combination though!

The first male is my favorite...

Thanks you guys! Yes, I do plan on selling the fry. I'll let you guys have the first pick here before sending them to Aquabid and Craigslist. (surprisingly, I've had a lot of people in my area contact me about buying high quality bettas. Most of them willing to pay $20-30. So they should sell pretty quick.)

Oh? I'm so excited to see fey from these! I have a planned first spawn and if all goes well. A fry from this spawn would make for some wonderful coloring.
