thanks :3 I just got on bc I can't sleep and my brain won't really hold much more.
but yeah breeding is hard.
Spoof ended up tearing akira up in a matter of seconds, after a spawn attempt >.<
Here is the scenerio.
I finally release her, they flirt and playfully chase, she gets all ready to spawn,
he tries to embrace, his little body couldn't wrap, and after about 5 tries, he got mad, and like grabbed her tail and didn't let go, which tore a chunk, and turned into a piranah as I tried to net her out of there, litterally grabbed her fin and wouldn't let go, I ended up scooping them both up, him with a big old chunk of Akira's fin in his mouth O.O It isn't worth her stressing like that, so I give up.
that was the small bodies betta I referred to btw.
I guess he got all mad because she crushed his ego. lawls.
She is in her little hospital tank now, she definitely just won't be bred, I feel so bad now O.O
At least she is still all playful with me and stuff.. Still I feel horrible that it happened.
It is all good, I am just glad Akira is healing up and she is still active. Spoof, is a mean betta, i should have known; one time we were playing the jump and bite my finger game, and he held on O.O Until my hand got out of the water. It didn't hurt but it is kind of a shock to see him holding on.
Awww... Cinder used to jump at my finger but as he's gotten older he hasn't jumped for my finger in a long time. He'll just flare at my finger beneath the surface and follow it around. I know he was very aggressive when he was younger at the pet store, but he's mellowed out as he's spent more time with me.
I still kinda want to breed him but... you brought up a valid point I hadn't thought of. Cinder's tail and fins are large and wide, but his body is relatively short and I imagine, unless the female was TINY, he'd have a hard time wrapping properly. He is still just under a year, I believe.... so hopefully he'll do some more growing in his body. Otherwise I may change my mind and either not breed at all or go for an HM breeding. :)
Well Spoof's body is short, stout, and muscular, Akira's is longer.
Spoof is a funny looking fish all around if you watch him in real life, one of them bettas with a face so ugly that it is cute :3 lol
