Most of those of those brine shrimp eggs are thousands of years old. They never go bad (until you put them in water).

At about two months of age males will become aggressive and start showin finnage. If your unsure of a bettas sex jar it. If it blows a nest then it's a male.

Its really hard to predict unless you know the genetics and stuff which I dont, but I remember reading somewhere that the White color in bettas is made from the combination of blue, yellow, and red or something like that. If thats tru then you should expect a little bit of anything.

Also when your determining how many eggs you want her to release, remember unless your experiences or lucky, some of them may not survive. So I would do a little extra in case.

You could mix and maybe come out with some cambodians or just white with red wash. You can try it and see what happens. If your not into breeding for show then you can do this. I reccomend you try it...maybe I'll buy some ;)

This is a Red Camdodian:

Cambodians are becoming more popular here in Colorado.

She is compatible with other cambodians and pure red bettas :)

If you breed her to the pure red you can get some good Red VT's (I'm guessing these fish are VTs) goin.

Big males can squeeze the life out of the female. So keep an eye on the love birds (or fish, whichever yuou awant to call them, lol).
