I've got some fry coming here. Don't expect anything high quality. It's hm x pk spawn. If you breed back to hm should get some okay hmpk. I've also got a cpl hm from LogisticsGuy aswell. Just a blue male. Aswell as a red hm boy. Pm me if interested

Where in Canada are you, herefishy77? Logisticsguy on here has some nice stock and more coming. He's in Calgary.

Mah, you probably wouldn't get any fry from breeding one of yours with another hm.

Ok, Mah. I will explain. You bred a traditional (two ray) plakat with a halfmoon. This will give you roundtail or veiltail (long fin, two ray) fry. To get hmpk, as it is a recessive gene, you have to either breed back to the father or do a sibling cross. Breeding one of your long finned bettas to another long finned betta won't give you any short tail fry, even though one parent carries the gene.

You have to understand the genetics to get it. Confusing stuff.

Might just be worth the try. I'm sorry after reading that I think it might not have been interpreted properly and probably seem disrespectful. My bad. And I didn't mean to be rude in any way if you were offended.

I didn't take it as rude at all.

Okay good. Just to be sure. Maybe I'll try to start hmpk to see and figure out genetics
