WHOA! He's unexpectedly beautiful. I thought he was going to look like one I saw on google but Stark looks even better. Thanks for sharing. He reminds me of a goldfish.

If you were to breed, you might want to get a non dalmatian. Breeding two dalmatian kind of cancels out the spots. If I remember correctly. He's practicing his goldfish impersonation for Halloween :P

The two fry are doing great. Thank you.
Stark already looks awesome and with even more spots, he'll look even more awesome. Hope he gets more spots.

Like what Talen said about dalmatians, I was afraid that breeding two orange betta will cancel out the orange. So I got a red female. I hope I get oranges from Flash and Ruby. I plan on breeding them next week once Ruby is full of eggs again.

It depends on genetics.
That's why it's not reccomended to breed pet store fish, because you really don't know what the fry will come out like since you don't know what their parents, grandparents and so on we're like.

Orange is also a recessive trait.

You will get oranges, but if you keep breeding orange, orange, orange, the colours fade over the generations, so you gotta keep introducing red into your mix.
