White Betta

I'm thinking about expanding to white bettas as well. I've had one successful spawn between my yellow HMPK btw :D However, we'll see how the fry last. There weren't that many :/

My question is, can a light red wash on the male be corrected? The one I'm looking at is super cheap ($15) and a DT. But I'd find a ST (no DT geno) with flawless color to breed with. I realize most white pairs produce dirty whites anyways...

Here's the pic of the male:


Help is appreciated :)

That male is oonly $15!!?? He's amazing!! Ok lets see...

For red you'll need nr...not sure which....and if they're opaque you'll need steel blue every once in a while.

I know Al of www.greatwhitebetta.com (the KING of white bettas) just set up some spawns after a long absence so see if you can contact him :)

Ooo thanks for the tip! I'll try to contact him. If not, I'll prob pay the price for this DT. It seems like a lot of work, but it could be very rewarding! White bettas seem to have a lot of appeal.

I got a hold of Al and he's going to help me out with the white line! The genetics are intense, but it'll be fun :)

Whites are very hard to breed (Genetics sound way to difficult for a beginner like me) but definatly worth it. White Bettas are in popular demand, and you're almost garunteed to get them homes.

Also, I think that Betta may be so cheap because maybe if that breeder is new he doesn't want to charge a whole bunch when he's a breeder with no reputation.
