well from what IVE read, its because the first batch isnt quite right, for lack of better words.
i think its because the parents have now already reproduced so it somehow makes the new batch into healthier babies. that the first time any of them breed isnt always wat the next batch will.
it also depends on whats dominant and recessive.

i dont claim to understand it all either lol

Same here. I see how you could get more eggs and faster spawning (as the pair has their mojo goin).

i am not trying to rag on you for what you have read. i just believe its a false claim. an egg is an egg, a sperm is a sperm. i hope kiddies arent reading this. a properly conditioned fish will produce quality egg/sperm whether theyre virgins or not.

mrvampire...........i put up a thread on determing the genetics http://www.fishforum.com/breeding-be...-bettas-29907/ i think i understood it correctly in what i said

i hear ya andakin.....it makes sense to me because the first time a pair spawn theres "typically" 50-100 eggs
while after the first breeding theres a significantdifference in amount of eggs produced. the fish are more mature, their bodies have already done this.

Genetics is a very interesting subject. I'm glad you guys are discussing this in a nice manner and respecting each others' opinions. :)
