Thanks! They're actually the closest to show quality out of all my bettas. The male is amazingly balanced both in his color and finnage! If I successfully spawn and the babies grow fast enough, I'd think about sending one to the CA show this year! IF they maintain or improve the standards of the parents.

Here he is! Fairly fantastic colors. I tried to find one that didn't have much black appearing on him.
Wow! He's awesome looking! He'll make some beautiful fry.

Woot, my Tri-color DT pair is nearly ready. They've been getting goodies for nearly 2 weeks and are starting to show signs of being ready! I'm waiting just a bit longer cuz the male has some fin damage that needs repair. I've been pushing protein on him (without overfeeding) and he's nearly all healed! I foresee introducing the couple the beginning of next week.

I decided to try a completely new method for introduction after my last spawn attempt. I have been conditioning them side by side to encourage them to be ready right away. They can only see each other through one small section of the divider. I plan to separate them today and isolate them for the weekend, then do a shock introduction in the spawning tank. I'll feel out how long I want them in isolation and will introduce anywhere between Mon-Thurs.

Wish me luck! I'm going to have fun watching this; the female is massive!! I doubt the male will be able to embrace her hahah.

great stuff! I look forward to seeing how successful this method is. I heard that sometimes, if the female is too big for the male, she will drop some of her eggs so that she becomes smaller and the male can have a better chance at embracing. But I cant remember where I read it so I don't know how reliable that is :) good luck!

Monroe, are you planning on showing your fish? I think it would be fun to start a show thread so people can post pics from shows and tell the rest of us about their experience.
