Hi,

I would like ideas about what colors I could expect from this pair.






Thanks!

The male looks dragonscale and the female doesn't. They are the same colors though so I would think you would get copper/red with patches of dragonscale. I would breed the best female back to the dad to get the dragonscale back. Love that color combo!

I like them too. They seem to like each other, but they are stuck in the build the nest up, play chase, blow more bubbles, play chase. The aggression has been very limited. She watches him from the corner. She even seems to try and blow a bubble as if to demonstrate. She is bigger than he is, but the approaches the bubble nest head down with lots of striping. I am wondering how long to wait before separating them to try again later.

Just leave them alone. Only if they are really fighting and one is getting chunks ripped off the body or they are ignoring each other completely and the bubble nest disappears. Everything sounds like it is going OK right now.

Sorry to be off-topic, but do you sell bettas on Aquabid and is your username jimxiong and then a few numbers? Sorry, a flashback from the one pic of the female. Or I'm going crazy. Probably the latter rather than the former. Just curious!

Not Jimxiong5749

Hi,

No, Actually I purchased the females for my sorority tank from him. The female in this thread is one of his. The male is a lucky find at Petco. The one I bought with him died =( so I went back and got this other one I will post. Jimxiong was really great to do business with. I recommend him if you are looking for an American breeder. My first shipment had a DOA fish along with 3 perfectly fine fish. Xena is the replacement and he gave me a half-moon yellow plakat free!

This is the poor guy that died. I could not save him. =(



Here is the other male I got, Sapphire:



He looks blue black in certain lights:



I like this one =)



This is his potential mate, a steel and redd hm feemale from JimXiong:


Here are her tankmates:

lavender hm from JimXiong (she actually has stripes):



a HM salamander (I liked her straight back.):



The littlle yellow halfmoon plakat:



She has a flesh colored head, like a piebald, but it blends:

Here is the fish I have in my classroom at school, Sylvester. He came from Petsmart:


He was labeled as a half-moon, but he is really a Delta. I wonder what kind of fry Would be the outcome of pairing him to the yellow, but I probably won't do that.

Anyway. Sorry for all the photos. I love them all.
