Dumbo Plakat Pair and Fry

Hello, my name is Van and I'm a new member here. I've finally decided to show my bettas. I was going to post a thread about 8 weeks ago when i bread my bettas but i didn't want you guys waiting for updates and seeing the slow growth of a betta fry. I am disappointed at myself because i only have 10 fry left. I counted 214 fry when i was moving them to the growout tank when they turned 5 weeks old. I'm a Link Crew leader at my HS and had to get there for a week before 7 o'clock so i didn't have time to feed them breakfast. But it's okay,10 is a pretty good number because i didn't plan on selling and making a profit anyways. I only want to breed a 2nd generation and 3rd generation and so on. It's a hobby.

Here they are...

Papa betta. Not sure if it it's a platinum or a dragon. What do you think?

Mama betta is a blue marble salamander.

And yes, those were her ventral fins. I thought "she" was a "he" too when i first saw her at the store. Her ventrals are even longer than the male's ventrals! I bought her hoping her offsprings will carry this crazy gene.


8 weeks old fry, this one is the biggest one. He/She's about three fourth of an inch.

I guess the mom's color was dominant over the dad's color because there are no white ones from the 10 fry i have left.

I'll post more pictures of the baby as it gets bigger.

The easiest way I know to post pictures would be to upload them on photobucket.com and paste the IMG code of the photo on here. :)

Looks like you have a lot of red heads, that could change in time.

It kind of looks like its a mix of both colors from mom and dad. Then with red being a dominate gene.. they get it from mommy :)

Anyway beautiful pair and very cute fry :)
