Does anyone have any recent information on breeding super black bettas? I have read information on breeding black bettas on www.bettysplendens.com
, but the information is very old and does not reference anything about super blacks.
Technically a super black is a betta that has no visible irids, however you will see breeders list their bettas as super blacks if their betta has just a slight amount of blue irids.
I was able to find a forum in which someone has consistently bred true super blacks. But he is extremely guarded about the breeding pair he uses. The only thing he would confirm is that one of his super black fry did come from a melano father.
From my hours of research, it seems as though no one truly has cracked the code on breeding super blacks. I canít even begin to list some of the things people have said about breeding blacks. One breeder said without a doubt that the only infertile females are melanos and that super black females are fertile. Then another said that he has bred super blacks using a melano female with a super black male.
At this point I'm just ready to select a male and female and just go for it.
Here are some pictures of what I want to accomplish.
