I told myself that I will never breed a Veiltail because finding homes for them will be challenging. I was at my LFS and found an orange male and red female. I knew i just had to get them. Then I said "What the heck. I'm getting them. I love veiltails. I don't care if no one like veiltails anymore." VEILTAIL!!!
They spawned yesterday, September 5, 2012. I'm happy because as soon as I released her into the spawning tank, she swan quickly under the bubblenest and they spawned right away. Lots of eggs.
HOW I CHOSE MY BREEDING PAIR
The female, Ruby, was in a tank with her three sisters so her tail got torn. When you see her, you'll see why I picked her. The male, Sunkist, was the healthiest male and the only orange one out of 20+ bettas. Yes, I am a guy and I name my fish. Is there something wrong with me?
Anyway, their first day home in clean water.
I let them see each other for two minutes a day to make them want to breed.
Added IAL for conditioning.
Here's a picture of Sunkist by himself.
