Red face XD My Spawn XD

Female: {Mneme} Volcano VT
Male: {Dionosys} Cellophan (Dragon?) HM
Goal: Hope to produce 15+ females for 30gal sorrority in a variety of color.

Mneme has bars when shown to Dion, I will condition for three days including today.

Conditioning Food: Day 1 Brine Shrimp (did not care for it), Day 2 Blood worms, Day 3 Blood worms. Also I will give them a couple flakes of bettamin every day.

Fry Food: Micro worms may attempt egg yolk and then eventually cut up pieces of brine shrimp and blood worms when old enough to eat it.

I will set up my breeding tank tomorrow I will be using a heater keeping the heat around 80. When the fry are big enough I have a sponge filter. There will be a couple assorted live plants to provide inforsia.

Q's
1. Does Dionosys have dragon scaling?
2. What do you think the colors will be? (I know breeding petstore bettas can be unpredictable.)
3. How long should I wait to clean the breeding tank?
4. Does light affect developement?

IMO pet store bettas are over stock-rejects, at least the modern tail types. The only difference is that you don't know their genetic back ground. The important thing is knowing what you want and or what you're trying to achieve - knowing what to combine (both form and color). So whether working with aquabid bettas or pet store, if you're breeding colors that require a number of genetic codes, you will get many different colors.

Thanks for all the support guys! I really cant wait until every thing is ready though I know first spawns normally fail.

Whoohooo! Hes a dragon XD I was so happy to read that MrVampire181 if he is a good breeder I might even use him with a dragon geno girl.

Update: Im getting my breeding tank set up right now. I fed them their morning blood worms and they like them much better then the brine shrimp. Since seeing Mneme last night for pictures he has a little bubble nest (Too bad its in the wrong tank :C) Ill get pics of the tank as soon as I am done.

So my tank is all set up, here is a picture. I'll wait until the temp is up and then put Dion in. The live plant looks really brown in this pic but it is really green.

So the temp warmed up and I let Dion run around a bit (like 30 min) I just floated Mneme and snapped a couple more shots before turning of all the lights and shutting curtains so its very dark.(He likes to make his bubble nest this way, and I thought it would make mneme more comfortable.)

I love his cute little orange face! His fins are starting to express the same salmon/orange color.

Thanks Creat! I Really like the purple fish in your avi!
Update: Dion has a small bubble nest 1"x1" in the spawn tank hopefully he will continue to work on it. I will release Mneme from the cup tonight and then lights out, hopfully tomorrow morning they will spawn.
