Congrats. Great job.

I will only focus on fancy (marble, 3+ color) from now on. I will spawn my fancy Koi female, and red, white, and blue male.
Does that mean you won't continue this line?


Looking forward to your future breeding.

Hi Indjo

I think I will keep 2 pairs from this line. They are suppose to be hot fighter. But I do not fight so there is no way for me to test them out.

So much work to do. I think I can only keep 1 line. Right now I am really into fancy and marble HMPK.

2 Months + 19 Days

They are today 2 Months and 19 Days. I remember when they are about 3 weeks they had ick. It took me about 4 weeks to treat ick. Now look at them.

Wow. Just read the entire thread. I'm actually really jealous. I would love to get into breeding betta's but I don't have the time, money, and space to actually do it.
I have lots of questions :P
How much longer do they have until you start jarring them?
Do you jar the males first and then jar the females at a later time? or all at the same time?
Is there an easy way for you to tell the difference between the males and females?

Hi Dragon Fly,

I am not sure how much longer they will tolerate each other. Right now they do little fight but nothing to serious to worry about. When I was a kid in Vietnam, I kept them for 6 months before jarring them. But in the U.S. you do a lot of water change therefore disrupting them alot. If they live peaceful without disruption, they can stay together for long time. To answer your question, I think I can go another 3-4 weeks then jarring the bigger boys. Right now I already have 20 pre-ordered; LFS also wants another 20. So I think I will be ok for about 3 more weeks.

I will jar the male first. Female usually can stay together for long time like community/sorority tank. Some smaller male and stay for at least another 4 weeks or so.

I like to keep about 15 female sorority tank. I love to watch them swimming.

It is hard to tell male or female at this time. I can guess the bigger flare at anyone swim pass them as the male. Male are darker too. But I am sure there are more male that smaller and has lighter color too. I can tell by their fin.

After this batch I will focus on fancy marble with 3+ colors...

Dear Dragon Fly,

The money is the problem. The time and space you can find and organizing. I am working full-time for low income housing, and I am also a substitute teacher for Seattle Public School part-time. I have to organize time. I also doing little home business with technology (apps development).

Space, right now we have a small house. We are looking for another house that is about 50% bigger than current house with more 1-2 more bedroom and garage space. I will have more space with a new house for sure.

With small space you still can breed them too, but you have to be organized and creative. For example some people use short 5-6 gal plastic tub and split large spawns into 2-3 tubs. I am thinking about doing that now since I do not have space for another glass tank.

Hopefully we will buy another house soon. My wife also thinking about building our own. If that is the case, we will have to wait for another 12-18 months before completion. Our we built our first house and saved about $50,000.

Tan

They are looking great!
If I had more space, like I did in TX, I would be doing multiple spawns at a time. I can't now and that's why I can only do one. Plus, I travel 2-3 times a year to see relatives so I have to plan so I don't leave small fry alone for a week.
I'm surprised you fry are not more agressive by now. I have to closely watch mine because I've found a few with chunks of fins missing :(
Have you counted them yet?
