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.
