I like veil tails also. :) in fact, the Dalmatian orange coloration was first developed in veil tails. You can read the story here:

I agree with you. I love VT... Aside from one CT, all my bettas have been veils. And my new little guy doesn't come from anywhere fancy, just the local walmart and he is rather special in his own way. Just as pretty as any other betta out there.

Sunkist turned out to be an egg eater. He ate all of his eggs yesterday. I was really upset. I'm not anymore because I was at WalMart today and picked up this little guy. He's just as pretty as Sunkist but a little bit prettier. Now conditioning him and Ruby. I named him Flash by the way.

Here's Flash.



WalMart have redeemed themselves. The betta cups have increased in size and the water is much cleaner now. The bettas are also really healthy.

Sorry to hear about your spawn. I hope Flash is a better father than Sunkist.

I found two of Sunkist's fry today when I was removing him from the breeding tank.
I added some water from the breeding tank to a new tank and then added the two fry. Though there are only two, I'm still going to raise them because I don't have the courage to cull.
I plan on breeding the new guy soon.

Culling is an essential part of breeding, it will prevent deformed fry from living awful lives, Prevents them from suffering.

I hope the two you have now are healthy!
