Black to black doesnt work unless theyre gentically compatible. Melano must be bred to steel blue females.

Oh, ok.....can you breed (Red X Black) & end up with solid blacks? Or would you end up with a copper?

because when the pair spawns you don't want the eggs get stuck between the gravel, where they can't find it, you might loose an awesome betta that way . keep the bottom bare/

Also, although providing somewhat biological filtration (your filter will provide the majority anyway), unless you are using the tank for display, all the gravel does is hide fish poop and make it harder to clean. With a bare tank bottom, you can easily see and syphon out the gunk.

I have lavender HM, and currently working big ears as well.
