Planning for the Future

As some of you may know, I planned on breeding this spring break but because of some space issues that fell through. Well I am so happy that I might have the chance to try again soon (April-May) because we are moving back into our old house! The renovations are being completed early and we should be moved in by the end of April. I decided that I would try to breed once we are all settled. I am going to breed Bellino. I have attached a photo of him, he is a DTHM Marble, about 6-7 months old. I got him in January from Greatbettas on Aquabid.

Anyways, I am going to San Antonio on Thursday and thought it would be a good time to pick up a breeding female from BasementBettas on Aquabid. All the females I have are pet store or they're the raise-your-babies from beat2020's spawn, so that is why I need a new one lol. Considering Bellino's form and color, which one of these females do you recommend I try breeding him with? Also, would it be best to buy two females, just in case?

The babies are doing great! They are growing and are at about 1.5 inches. They are currently in a divided 10 gallon, instead of a divided 20 gallon. The 20 gallon already had the sorority and the cories in it, so in the 10 g they have lots more room. They get so vibrant when they see each other through the mesh!

Oh, stupid me! I said I attached a photo and totally forgot!
Here it is:

Try to post pictures of them! :D

And wow he's stunning! I would go with girl #1. She has a nice long body (Which is always great when breeding to a DT) and a nice big dorsal.She's not quite HM, but it does state in the auction that she's still young...

I agree.

As far as two females.. that's never a bad idea (... it's like I always tell Karen.. getting just one fish in a box seems like a waste LOL).

I would get that green female and then maybe look at her black marble females she's posted (I'm not sure if she has any up right now but you can ask).

Okay I am going to message her right now and see if I can do that.

I will try to get pics of your (beat2020) babies up tomorrow!

Edit: I just sent her a message on aquabid asking about the metallic green female and one of the black marble females (there were still some up). If every thing goes right, I will be coming home Thursday with two new girls!

I have a question, Can females that live in a sorority be bred? Or do they lose their breedy-ness?

Ill ask when she replies. That would be so exciting if she was from your line! Yeah she looked something special :)

BTW I just noticed this photo is from when he had fin damage, his fins are better now and the red line is gone.

Can female bettas that live in a sorority be removed, conditioned, and bred?
