Guess what!

Look who is making an appearance in my blue/mg line...


http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...sdt&1290790810


I was hesitant at first because since he's coming from MartinisMommy I thought he might be too closely related to my current breeders but actually they only share the same great grandmother and no blood on his sire's side so he'll be a great asset.

She's sending a free female with him. I'm so excited to work with DTs, as some of you know I had a HMDT a while ago who sadly passed before I could ever breed him. I've wanted to get a nice DT since.

Please keep your fingers and fins crossed that he arrives safely. I know Karen is a great shipper but with the holidays coming I worry a little more than usual.

I'm so glad you got him Jackie! I think he's going to make a great addition to your line. However he's still a little guy. :P (I saw him last time I went to Karen's)

Are you going to be breeding him to the female you're getting or Myrtle?

Thanks guys.. I'm really happy I was able to afford him and he didn't get sold.

I'm going to ask her how old he is. He looks young. That's actually good because I wont' be able to spawn him right away anyways.. so he'll have some time to grow up a bit.

Peaches.. young bettas will normally have a belly full of food. He's not bloated. If you look at my spawn threads in the pictures you can see that some of the babies look fat. They're supposed to be that way :) that's how we get them to grow so fast.

I'm probably going to spawn him with both of the females. Since I already have a spawn from Myrtle and Tallahassee (and gearing for a piggy back one next weekend) I'll probably wait to spawn him for at least a month. I don't have room to have two spawning tanks and two grow outs so I need to get my multicolor spawn sold then move the new fry into the growout before I can do another spawn.

Depending on what the female looks like I may spawn her first or myrtle. Thing is I know Myrtle is a good breeder so its going to depend on whether or not I think the new female will be a good breeder as to who I use first.

He's just a smidge lighter than Tallahassee is.

Paypal was sent and he'll be on his way to me on Monday! Expect pic spam on tuesday!
