Spawn Log 32 Years Later

The last time I breed betta was over 30 years ago in Vietnam. The weather there is perfect for betta. This is my first try breeding in the Seattle, Washington, U.S.A. The baby betta will be natural born American Betta and qualify to run for Betta President some day

When I was in VN, I tried over 10 times before I got the first spawn right . I hope my first breeding in the U.S. will be a charm.

Here you go my first betta breeding in the U.S. journal:

Introducing the FIRST PAIR:





Male close up. What kind is he (I hope you tell me)? I do not know. I know my female are 5* plaket from good friend, betta pro in Southern California.

To me, he looks like a plakat, but it's hard to tell without him flaring.

Like the pair though.
How big are they?

Good luck with your spawn!

enkil, the female is about 2" about 7.5 months and the male is little bigger. I think he is a plaket too.

I know the male is been around. I feel bad for him he never knew a female before so I let him go first (1 and only 1 time). I have many betta male in line but I feel bad for this guy so let him try out his first female.

The second pair is King plaket with female 5* plaket. Again I feel sorry for this guy. He is also little old too.

After this two guys all my pairs are younger and more energy then the first two male.

How big is your king?
Will have to keep an eye on your spawn logs in case you end up with some bigger fish. ^_^ I have a giant male that I am looking to work with.

Hopefully these first two pairs do well for you.

Hi Curly,

5* plaket line from Crazy Dog Betta in Orange County, CA. The owner told me is that the line I got outcross between Viet+Thai+Malay. All parents are arena fighter and winners. Female is a proven spawn fish. My female's brothers are also won arena fight. I ordered three 5* female plakets from this family.

I do not fight betta. However, I like the power, quickness, and aggressiveness of the plaket fighter. I also like HMPK. My goal is to have a very quick, power, and aggressive plaket. Just remind me of the growing up time in Vietnam.

It is hard to go with old school on the breeding and set up. I used to breed in Vietnam and it was so easy over there. There are abundant of live mosquito larva and bbs (I think Vietnamese called it bobo). Aquatic plant you can go 1 mile to pick them as much as you want.

When I was a kid in Vietnam, I even select mosquito larva which one to feed and which one to discard (Big head larva is about to turn into mosquito got discard because at that time they have little nutrition value and reduce sharpness of betta teeth).

Here in Seattle I will breed and feed my fry like most other members.
