I have a "fancy" marble dragon HMDT. Heavy finnage and still growing.

After marbling


I don't have a female for him yet, but I was thinking of just going with a simple cello HM like this girl from BasementBettas. I keep going back to this one's auction page, but I am not breeding for a while yet.

Thoughts?

Indjo has warned me that I might get excessive branching in the offspring of the first pair on this page. Should that be controllable? I simply don't breed RT or FT? They are siblings.

Breeding RT isn't all bad you will also get some very nice HM out of this combo.

The male has excessive branching as it is. Since I believe females pass on more of her fins, pairing him to a DT would produce fry with more ray branching - possibly roses. I'm not saying you shouldn't breed them. I'm just telling you to be careful when breeding the F1 and if possible, don't inbreed since it is unadvised to inbreed both roses nor DT. But breeding to unrelated genes should be fine, specially to less rays (4 rays).

Fenghuang's male is a DT but the female is a 2 ray. This pairing should be totally safe and can even be inbred. In fact, since offspring should follow more of the female's fins, fry should be 2 - 4 rays.

What would be the likely outcomes of a super black x orange dalmation spawn? Not saying I would do it... I'm just curious.
Mattsbetta; A few breeders say that you will get a majority of super blacks (black male x yellow/orange female). At the same time you should eventually get more vibrant yellow/orange - maybe in F3. I'm not really sure how reliable this is as I haven't tried it myself. Further I'm not sure how the dalmation will affect the black. . . (will there be black dalmations?). . . . dalmation to my knowledge is partially dominant; you will have dalmation for a few generations. But this applies to yellow/orange/red crossings.

Huh... That sounds interesting. That might be a neat experiment if I don't find a good male for my female.

What would you get (assuming linebred) with a opaque/platinum white x super black betta? What about white x orchid (no red only black and blue irid)- would it turn out different?

I am having further trouble with Profish--they are telling me again they cannot send the solid green I had bought--and so am going to have to go a different direction for my nice solid green dragon female. I am intrigued by this boy. What do you think he would do with a gold dragon female or a solid green dragon female?
