I could sell you a blue dragon if when decide who to keep and who to sell. They carry the HM gene but are HMPK.

Well I'm shifting my focus to HMPKs...pure red and blue dragons with red/black fins. After seeing Linda Olsons shipment and seeing all the gorgeous aqaubid fish that I drool over face to face I will be ordering several more Thai fish.

Thanks but it looks like your pair has a bit of red wash, and I really don't want to introduce red to the line since it is difficult to breed out.Plus I want to work on the butterfly pattern.Thanks for the offer though.

I might be making my first tentative steps into wilds. I'm looking at purchasing a wild Betta. The seller is not sure what gender it is or even what species. I'm pretty sure it's either smaragdina or imbellis. If I buy it I'll figure out species and gender and look at finding a mate.

Either way it's not a far cry from splendens so I shouldn't have much trouble spawning them.

Yeah they do but some of the fry are mostly blue, it really depends on what your breeding for. Also IDK how the red got there. The father was a turquoise and the mom a blue dragon, neither having red wash.

Either way I'll probably be ordering some better dragons (this line I will be working for blue dragon bodies with red and black fins, similar to Victoria Starks Armadillo line).

Just to give you an example of my goal (and I'm super close to ahcieving it too!):

With a little googling I'm almost 100% sure that it is a smaragdina, not sure of sex because the pictures the seller has aren't very good. Either way I'm excited :)

Her Armadillo line is one of my favorites....not something I would like to breed for though. Do you know how you are going try to achieve it?

For an addition to my line, I would love a male like this.

Since I'm only on f1 I won't need an outcross soon. My 8 week old fry have nice color seperation with no red in the body and only red in the fins and some have a black outlining. I'll simply keep breeding the ones with the best seperation and later get a nice outcross (there's a breeder in California who focuses on dragons who I'll be getting my outcrosses from).
