Which would you prefer?

I'm using BF.com as a test dummy I think I've figured out a way to be able to breed while I'm at school so I can do more spawns than just in the summer. I want to see what spawns would be the most popular (and thus easier to sell).

Anyways I'm thinking of getting a new pair for my birthday to spawn this fall/winter. I think spawning in the colder months is going to be much better because by the time the kids are ready to go it will be warm enough to not need the extra cost of heat packs.

Ok.. so here are my options. The links are just examples based on color/tail type.

Black Dragon HMPK

"Fancy" Marble HM

"Fancy" Marble Dragon HMPK

Melano HM (black)

HM Doubletails (probably blue butterfly's because I would like to use Eros).

If it were you which one of those would you be most interested in getting a baby from? Right now I think I might want to stick with marbles and work towards getting a line going, but I also want to try other things so I can't decide.

I may just decide to spawn a pair from Sid's fry this fall but it doesn't mean I can't get a pair for my birthday to spawn later

I figure I can probably do one spawn this fall/winter and another in the summer, provided I can sell most of the babies before the next spawn rolls around. I won't be doing two at a time though too much work and space.

Out of the fish you listed I would go with the Black Dragon. But the Fancy Marble HM would go great for the line you're working on now IMO.

Personally I like the thought of you breeding the fancy marble dragon halfmoon plakat, and making a line :)

All of these are fish I'd like to have lines of eventually and I probably will. I just can't decide which I want first. Halfmoons are my passion but I think I might want to try something new also (which would be the HMPK). If I did a marble HMPK line I could cross that into my Marble HM line to strengthen rays (if need be). I also REALLY want to try melanos.

The easiest way to go would be HMDBT because I already have an award winning male HMDBT so I would just need a decent female. Everyone else I'd have to look into getting pairs from overseas. I also really like the idea of spawning my own F2 but I don't think my babies will be big enough by the fall.

I like the black dragon HMPK and the HMDBT. Can we see a picture of Eros, who you mentioned earlier?
