Actually no, I think I agree with Alexx, because if I breed again, and get even more babies out of this, then I deff would not have a grow out tank. I think I'll wait a bit longer. See how my first batch goes. I don't want to mess things up and get too many babies and no tank. So I'll just take care of these guys until I can get another tank. If I can get another one, then I'll deff breed Pearl and Merlin again.

I really like Pearl and Merlin, and I don't really want to breed a crowntail and a veiltail, waiting to see how the babies look for ilovemyshiny. Then maybe I'll think about it. I think I make better sells with Pearlins, but like I just said, I'm gonna put it off until I get yet another tank.

i was wrong before. ct x vt yields combtails (a uglier version of crowns imo). i was gonna suggest you buy another crowntail.

are you waiting because you
  • dont have an available tank
  • you want to see what the offspring will look like
if its the second choice i would not have the patience to wait over a month for another set of F1's and several months before you can make F2's.

I don't like combtails either and I don't have room for another betta. I'm staying with what I have so if I do breed any time soon, it will be Pearl and Merlin. If I wait, it will be the two babies I keep. And also, I'm not breeding Pearl and Merlin again yet, because I need another tank.

I wish someone would post pics of a crowntail and combtail side by side so I can see the difference.

Thanks, andakin and Vikki. The ct has longer spikes, then.

Yep that's about it, but I like crowntails better for some reason.
