And I don't know what their lineage is. I know the names of their breeders but I wouldn't know how to get in contact with them.

I feel very lucky.. they aren't even from the same breeder but they make a great pair! I'm interested to see what we'll get with them. I don't care too much about color but I hope we'll get some with Daddy's finage... he is perfect!

I have the same problem with my marble pair. Well, not as much as not knowing how to contact the breeder, as much as not really wanting to... I am so lazy! :P

He is really nice! I love her coloring in the last picture, your pair are like they were made to go together haha. He has a really nice body, and nice ventrals, and the female's anal fin would compliment him nicely. She has a nice body as well :)

He's a 1st place fish so I knew he has something going on LOL. I'm so new at the breeding game that I still can't pick out the good from the bad when it comes to structure and fins.

I think the female is really nice. I wish I could get better pictures of her color. When she's not stressed its almost as dark as the male's. She's slightly more blue whereas he is more purple.

I'm so excited! I can't wait to try a spawn. I'm a little scared at the same time though.. I don't want anything to happen to the fish.

I have another question also.. what do you use to jar fry and where do you get them from?

Haha, I didn't either until I started to get REALLY into breeding betta. Just print out a few good pictures of betta, like and practice writing the anatomy they have down.

I agree with dq! Your spawn will come out great!

I have a mom and grandmother who LOVE to can food, because they both have huge gardens, and I am going to use some of their extra jars. But, not the little 6 oz ones, the biggest ones the make are about a gallon I think. You can also make a "holding pen" out of plastic canvas, I made one, and it took about a week to make, but it looks pretty good. Should suffice I guess.

Can you put a picture of that up? I can't picture what your saying with the plastic canvass thing.

Someone on another forum gave me a link to people that sell plastic tubs.. they seem pretty cheap to me but I have to see how big they are.

Also.. here are some better pictures of the pair.

Male: (I've named him Sid Vicious)
Without flash:
(not a full flare.. he is definitely an HM and not a delta)


With Flash: (sorry bout the glare.. this was the best I could get)


I have more but I'll put them up in a picture thread in a few days so I don't clog this thread.

Now the girl (She's named Nancy (as in Sid and Nancy))
The pictures don't do her justice. She has very vibrant purples and reds that are washed out in all the pictures. With flash she looks blueish.



According to Zenandra I'm going to get a bunch of different colors.. including marbles?

I do not have a picture right now, but once I get one uploaded, I will show ya. It is the same material that you make the home made tank dividers out of, but set up in sections with either thread or aquarium sealant, which is what I used.
