This is a silly question, so bear with me. I'm hoping to start breeding bettas, at least once. I'm doing lots of research, and I'm not quite prepared to start yet (I'm planning to breed in the spring, if I end up breeding at all.) However, I do have a male that I love that I would like to breed, and I'm looking for a mate for him. He's a deep turquoise and white halfmoon- I've been told that he's a decent specimen and appropriate for breeding. There are plenty of "mutts" available at pet stores (which I also love, lol); but if I breed, I want to be breeding "good" fish. I'm more interested in producing high-quality fish than in making a quick buck. So anyways, I came across a female that I like, and I'm wondering what others think of her. She's a lighter turquoise than my male and a rosetail. I'm attaching a photo to see what you all think. Please let me know if you think that she's inappropriate for breeding or if you see any major flaws in her. Sorry for the trouble- I'm still working on figuring out all my fins and branching and such! I promise that I won't be breeding anything until I'm confident that I know what I'm doing!
I'm just trying to look ahead so that I am prepared with the fish that I want when I'm ready to start breeding. Thanks very much!
