I'll only be selling on forums for now.

Thats a brother of this pair. I've seen the spawn log so if you breed them I'd probably order a pair for an outcross.

The fish arrived alive and well and are in there tanks:

I hope to breed soon but probably not with that pair :( even though they're really nice I'm not quite ready. I'm keeping an eye on the_K's fish for now and will probably buy my breeders from him when I do get them.

Glad to hear that your fish arrived safe and sound! Keep us updated!

Well the male seemed like he was about to up and die on me. I went to bed thinking the worst. I wake up turn my light on and see a HUGE nest. He's still staying under the nest the entire time but when I came back from school he made it even bigger!!

The female has vertical bars and they should have a great spawn. I'm putting them in next weekend.

Can't wait to see the result. Maybe I'll wait to breed and take a sibling pair from your spawn

Don't know if I can wait that long though lol.

Lol thanks. Unfortunately these guys won't be ready till early-mid November. I decided to add the pair to the tank soon. Maybe even this week. The sooner the better. Mainly because I'm going to Mexico around the time the babies would be two months. So I want to spawn ASAP.

Found out the problem.....water was too cold at 75 degrees. I put them in the spawning tank for temp rise and he began to flare!!! They're showin readiness and as soon as he has a nest I'm goin for it.

Well he's startin a nest but until he builds one like his last one its a no go. Sister is ready, nice full of eggs and showing vertical bars. I realize spawning after shipment is stressful but some of my best spawns came from bettas purchased just days before and they turn into better spawniners in general. I don't know why.
