2nd time breeding

Hi all.

So this is my 2nd time breeding. My first successful spawn was back on dec and 30 of my fry has successfully reached into mature size. Though only few is actually sellable quality and some are deltas that has been given away, while the rest are culls. I'm trying out another spawn which is the pineapple one was from my last spawn and the white one which I purchased from a local pet store. I know I'm not suppose to breed betta fish from pet store, But I just adore him. For the fact that most people say that betta from pet store aren't breeding quality, they do a heck of a job of making them look like one.

Here's the pair's picture and a short clip of them will be uploaded soon! Enjoy =D

I think the main reason people say pet store bettas shouldn't be used is because there is no way to know their background. No way to know what genes they may carry other than the ones you can see. Also, they may be older than ideal breeding age.

It is mostly a background/non-visable genes type thing. But you'll see most of what they carry in the spawn.

Does that male have some yellow in him aswell, or it just my eyes still in sleep mode? I ask because I'm mulling over possible fry outcomes in my head xD


Anywho, ~tips her hat~ Good morning and best of luck to you. Did you keep a spawn log of your last spawn/do you have a link? I would love to maybe see some of the siblings of your girl.

Hehe I kinda poofed for quite a while. xD Thank you.

And it's good he has yellow, it'll help you get some yellow fry. :3


Just looked at the siblings, I'm curious. If you bred for the dragon scaling why keep the girl who seems to shows what looks to be none? She gorgeous, don't get me wrong, I would have kept her aswell.

Cause she's the one that looked the best on the spawn. she has the dragon gene and so as the male right now, so there should also be some dragons as outcome

She is a lovely thing, I'm not normally a pineapple fan(the only ones I ever see "alive" are the VT's at walmart and...well alive is a very loose term for those :/).

Oooo, looking forward to the spawn more so now.
