This is my first betta spawn and I'm super excited about making this all happen. I haven't been the most active member on here, but I do lurk all the time and have done a bit of business with a few of you. My goal here to start a line of crowntail plakat betta that have the koi colorings, this is going to take a while but I expect that my pairs offspring will be gorgeous regardless of whether or not they inherit the crowntail plakat trait.
I am also doing a spawn log on a fish's tumblr blog here
the blog has already been going for a while, but I'll put up some of the images from there here for you guys to enjoy as well.

I have already introduced my pair, and my male has built up a rather impressive bubble nest, the largest one I've ever seen him build. They have been free swimming together for a few hours now and they just do some chasing, male goes back to the nest and blows more bubbles and the female hides, repeat. As my first spawn I'm a little unsure of their behavior...
