I dont think thats how colors work in bettas.. blue +red =/= purple..

I also dont think your fry would have colors in 3 weeks O.o... mine are 23 days old and no color yet!

Not even the best of the best grow out their fry in three weeks, and red+blue doesn't equals purple...

I'm a little doubtful lol.

Even with no real betta breeding experience, I have a hard time believing that...

Not to mention selling fry at three weeks is totally irresponsible.

Please don't doubt me. All the people had helped raise the fry, they know what to do. The female had a little purple on her belly. I gave the babies color enhancer flakes at 2 weeks with some brine shrimp so I think that's why they have color early. Many people took multiple so I knew they were in capable hands. One of them lives right up the street with the baby Iris.

You have to understand, the skepticism of the breeders who responded to your thread is justified. Many of them have done extensive research and/or have personal experience in betta breeding; some have raised multiple spawns already. Based on what is known about betta genetics and growth, your account just doesn't add up. And without photographic evidence or documentation of your spawn's development, your story is fantastical at best.

Chutney, there are things to consider, such as supplies, homes and stuff. If you feel that you have checked everything off and that you are ready, then go ahead. Ilikebutterflies does have a good point: it's your fish, do what you want.
Are you just breeding for pets, or show? If you are breeding for show, I would invest in a good sibling pair from Aquabid if I were you. Any of your boys would be good as long as they are in good condition.
Hope I helped.

When i think of a kid i think of someone whose 8-9, which you aren't. I think kids starts to learn what responsibility is around 12-13. I would trust a 13 year old to watch my fishroom for a weekend, i would not trust a 9 year old to watch my fishes for a weekend.
