Some of my new Bettas.

I'll start off with the new wilds. I've been waitting for some of the rarer and harder to find. But I found these guys and desided they would work as a starter line to a HMPK { Halfmoon plakat } So I got some wild betta Imbellis
Male



female imbellis


Betta smaragina, emrald male


female


Will add the others after I get restarted. Hope you like.
Ok PC restarted so heres my fancy HMPK {halfmoon plakat }



just a mix of the other new ones. All of these are from my breeding line,

i hope youre suitably proud of your collection!!

the wild ones are lovely as well, not as fancy as such but equally as pretty in a different way i think

A) Geez! I am impressed
B) Goofy ain't ugly. :D
C) About that last red one - If you're breeding reds, you've probably been trying to eliminate the red fade gene (or trying to parlay it into a pastel pink). Is there a reliable way of telling if a red betta has that gene short of letting it get older and fade?
D) Do you peat tint your water for these guys, or use Indian Almond leaves or the like? If you have used both peat and almond leaves, is there a difference between them effect wise (leaving aside that having a leaf floating in the tank gives the male something to anchor his bubblenest on.) I'm not breeding (lack the room) but I do want to keep my boys happy.

Thanks for the beautiful fishies, and thanks in advance for any advice.

Thanks , On the red. That's a call for the breder,IMO I try to stay away from a red that has a dark body tone. I've found that the more white you can see between the skeals the more the fry has a pink tone. In the body <I've been trying to find a way of lighting the fin colors with out taking away from the pinker body. I've gotten it down a few times but then in the F2 fry. The dark red comes back in the body and the fins are lighter. So NO so far I havn't found a good mix on how to get the pink fin and body last for more then a fry.

On the green water vs. almound leaf. There's no call there the Almound leaf all the way. I have found that even in the Apistogrammas and bettas that peat moss plays alarge roll in the spawn. They spawn faster with the peat moss in the tank, then just the almound leaf.
