Yello HM

Hello,

I am planning buy Yellow HM, but it's just weak color. It like white/yellow HM.
So, if I feed Spirulina, he become Yellow HM ?
He also has cellophane his edge of fin. Is it same or become Yellow ?

Genetics are weak, it's not a good yellow fish, shipping will stress the fish further and it will lose its color.

Thank you very much,
Here is as link on how to breed yellow fish.

I wouldn't start with bad genetics, but if you wanted to try and improve the genetics of the fish you would breed it to a Non-Red (Yellow). Yellow fish come from red fish, but achieving a TRUE yellow color is very hard and little is known on how to do so. Getting yellow fish is not hard, getting a good yellow fish is very hard.

Polukoff, the yellow in your pic, is that one of yours? He's absolutely beautiful!!

I'm looking for, and hoping, and crossing my fingers, that I can eventually find a yellow, a pure white, and a solid black. That's my wish list!

Yes, Yellow betta have been very difficult to breed, importing them has been a nightmare, very few red or yellow fish survive the shipment let alone have the strength to breed. Black fish are my strong suit, I have every variation I can think of and they do great importing.

Well, you'd only have to import to Florida lol! I'd love to see pics of the different blacks that you have. I'm not looking to get into breeding, just collecting for my own enjoyment. Oh, and I want a yellow like the one in your pic! I know, I don't want much! Lol!
