Thinking About Breeding

So I've been bitten by the breeding bug again. I had decided that if I were to breed bettas, I would wait until I found a pair that looked kinda purple. Yesterday I went to my LFS to see if they got any new bettas in, and what do I find, a purplish betta. I think he's either a HM or SD, not entirely sure. Anyways, among my travels yesterday I came to be at the Petco. As I was looking at the bettas I saw a purplish girl that was listed as a veiltail. I almost didn't pick her up, but upon closer inspection I saw that she was mislabled and was a crowntail. She came home with me. I would like to breed the two of them, especially since I happened to find them the exact same day. What do you guys think? I won't be breeding them until after the new year if I do. Unfortunatly the pics I took of them make them look more blue than purple, but at least it gives a good idea of how they look.

If you bred them, the tails would probably end up looking really messy, which would mean you'd have a bit of difficulty getting the offspring good homes... However, if you know enough people who could take your fry no matter how they look, that shouldn't be an issue.

Yeah, I do have people that are willing to take the babies, so I'm not too worried. I know the tails will probably look funky for the first gen or two, but if I can get a nice combtail going that would be awesome.

I'm spawning a pruple pair next weekend...if you really want some good fins contact me on fry...they'll be ready (if they spawn) in like March or April. The hopeful parents were bred by Martinismommy.

I will definitly be interested in your fry MrVampire181. A female from your spawn would be lovely. My biggest problem whenever I think about breeding was finding a good female that I wouldn't have to get sent halfway across the world. I'll be keeping in touch. :)
