so, i want to learn as much as i can about betta genetics before i start my future project.
Orange Dalmatians. i got info on Dalmatian, but need help on the whole.... orange part.
from what i've read, Dalmatian is dominant, and even when out-crossing into other colors, some of the fry will show the spotting(in my case, it'll be red). if bred into reds, the spots won't show, of course.
but, orange confuses me. i know it's not kindergarden colors, that red and yellow DON'T make orange. xD but, what does? the male will be a veiltail i'll probably get from my lps, since they get in amazingly healthy bettas(with no signs of anything wrong with them. no dips, bent spines, deformities, ect), and seem to come from a very good breeder. he'll be an orange dal, of course, but what colors should i look for in a female, and what colors should i avoid? or, should i just go ahead and try to find an orange dal pair off aquabid? >.>;
no worries about this. xD i do plan on doing it, but not right now. ._. gotta get the stuff ready. the spawning tank, grow out tank, jars, foods, filter, heater, live plants(cause i wanna try my hand at live plants. :3), ect.
any advice on this whole thing is appreciated. :d like, what kinds of plants(i do plan on a huge mass of Java moss. xD my favorite plant. :3), foods you use, conditioning tips and tricks, ect. :d
