Got a couple pairs I'm going to start, probably tomorrow.. about to go set up the spawn tanks here shortly.
First pair I've had a couple people already tell me it's a good pairing, so I'm interesting in seeing what comes from them. They are similar size luckily, both a bit small.. she has experience, he hasn't, so I'm hoping he follows instinct and becomes a good daddy like his dad is (his dad is the second male) the picture shows him a lighter red, but he is just as vivid dark as his father, a bit more smoother in the body.
The second pair is my mystery pair.. I really like her colors (picture does her no justice), so going to see what comes from them. She has had a few spawns already.. and he has bred a few times too. Her top line isn't as smooth as I would like, so will be culling that out hopefully and try to straighten it out a bit more. But she is still lovely and can't wait to see what they produce. Unsure about her mother, her father has her colors and looks real good - so she does have some nice genes in her.
Both girls are from Chard56, both males are from Red Dragon Bettas.
So.. here's wishing me luck with these two pairs!
