Breeding stripes.

This may be a dumb question but are breeding stripes usually dark or can they be whitish? I think my new girl Reina has breeding stripes! I've never had a female that got breeding stripes before.

Depends really. Lolita used to get dark brown breeding stripes and now they're white so I guess it really dosen't matter.

She's kind of a bluish green with red fins. Also, how long will they hold eggs if they aren't bred?

My oldest females (about two years old) haven't dropped their eggs once. So that depends on how many eggs she's holding.

When I got her, she looked a bit on the chubby side but she's so tiny I thought it was just normal. Now I think she may have eggs.

I'm just surprised. I've never had it happen to any of my females before.

being the betta enthusiast that you are, you could always give breeding a try.
