im going to breed the white and mustard on page one, ive worked with blues and my blue is almost 2years old so I wouldn't breed him. but he has awesome fins other than one of his vertical fins a crooked and amazing color(in person my camera sucks) and I should have bred him. I was just using him as an example of how he changed color as he grew up

im not planning on breeding him he's 2 years old. and he didn't stay a marble the picture I used for my profile Is what he looks like now. he was just used as an example.

Nothing wrong with breeding a 2yr old.. that age won't change any outcome :)

IT WONT!! i'm excited now. he's normally next to my female tank and I moved his tank closer to my bed so I can see him more and my new butterfly CT female was there and he made the biggest bubble nest I have ever seen it was about 1/4in thick and coved half the tank and he did this within 2 hours, and hes never made a nest before or even take any interest in the females so I think he likes her

other than that curved vertical fin, does his fins look ok... I cant get any flaring pics, he wont flare, he's actually pretty calm for a betta him and my old betta Ted actually shared a 10 gallon tank for two years until Ted passed away at age 6

Nope. People use younger ones for the most part because they tend to be more willing to breed.. but with the male, his age shouldn't affect anything - I've bred both older and younger bettas.. my eldest ones end up with many more eggs.

Just make sure to separate him from view of other bettas during conditioning so he isn't "desensitized" to seeing a female all the time.
