it would be really cool if their babies were doubletail bettas, with white fins and red bodies

yeah that would be awesome. the only problem is that those are all recessive traits

@MrVampire181 whats your reason? i'd like to hear(:
Meh whites with red streaks are just not really something I like. Though I if I saw one in a petstore he'd be mine lol. If you get some nice lookin fry and may want to develop a line I'd be glad to help.

I see them because she's got a see through skin. Shes a cambodian red female (which I'm hoping to get some in my current spawn) one of my fave colors :)

Seeing how your female is a DT I'd want some fry to add to the VT line I'm creating (DT's are a great addition to any line!!).

well i'm probably gonna breed her with some other male (im visiting aquarium stores frequently on the lookout for a HM) in the next month, just got to get everything set up. so if i have a successful spawn ill send you a male and/or female double tail if there are any in the results. i would think even if it is a recessive trait that there would still be some.

No there most likely won't the first generation dosen't usually give DTs but the gene is present so if I get a pair and inbreed I'll get DTs :)

Try breeding a male from this spawn back to the mom, you'll get awesome fry that way because those fry will get 75% her genes and most will be DT or DT carryers.

She looks like a VT to me so maybe a nice red VT male.

I say under a year is best though I've had a pair spawn at 2 years no eggs were produced.

but isnt VT a dominant trait so their wouldnt even be a single DBT in the first spawn? or would there still probably be no DBT's in the first spawn if i paired her with like a halfmoon?
and are most pet store bettas over a year?

You don't really know the age but if you buy one and breed them within a few weeks they'll breed and most likely succesfully.

Either way no DTs will be produced in the first generation. You could spawn her twice once with a VT and once with an HM.

alright[:
well since VT are the most common at petstore's im gonna go monday and pick out a nice [unknown color] vieltail.
im probably gonna get red but if i bred my red cambodian with a non-normal color [lol] like purple or orange maybe somewhere down the line i could have a purple cambodian? that would be awesomeee!

yeah, since i can get it done sooner if i bred her with a vieltail, i think i'll go with vieltail. they actually are verry pretty [:
