I'm new to the forum but have owned bettas for around 10 years. I just recently had a successful spawn, although there's only 8 fry left. They're getting awfully big with daily water changes :) I currently have 2 CT females (a royal blue (Root Beer) and a speckeled turquoise(Alaska)), a pink dragon VT (no name yet), and a blue marbled orange dragon rosetail male (Cheeks because of his blue cheeks). I've bred Cheeks (rosetail) with Root Beer (R. blue CT) with the goal of eventually spawning blue marbled CTs.
I've also competed in Aquarium Management competitions, placing 3rd in District and 2nd in State :)
