Ok, I think I've decided I would like to work on a giant line. I have 1 half giant CT Hades, pictured here, and need to find him a lady. I know he's not a perfect specimen, that's why I'm asking what I should look for in a lady for him. I posted two pictures because one shows his flaring and one shows his form better. I know his top line needs a little work and I think his caudal needs shortening & widening. If I'm right on that I figured I would need a HMPK female for him. Any suggestions? I don't mind being told I'm wrong, that something else needs worked on or I need to look for something else. I know it will likely take a few generations to get what I am working for. I don't mind the work and have any fry I may need to find homes for taken care of. If you think I may be over looking something please say so. I'd rather do this right or not do it at all at this point.
I've also included a picture of my 1 'king' female, Bellona, that I could
breed Hades with. I don't think that would do anything but give me the giants & maybe some half giants. I'd rather start working for the end product though.
The last picture is of my 'king' male, Pan. I don't know anything of the history of Bellona or Pan. I got them both from my local pet store. They had been given to them by a lady (with 3 other females, I think a failed sorority) and sold as female bettas for $3.99. That's the extent of my knowledge. Hades I know had a giant father and a CT mother and is part of the F1 spawn. I may have which parent came from Evilog originally mixed up, but I believe the member I got him from said that he got the giants from Evilog.
