Question What line should I start working on??

I have a few pairs ready for spawning but I dont know which I should start with. I have
  • Red and black marble halfmoons
  • Red and blue grizzled Halfmoons
  • Black halfmoons
  • mint marble halfmoons
  • red dragon crowntails
  • black orchid crowntails
  • or red and copper doubletails?

Do some have better fins than other? I'd probably use that to decide... I'm having the same problem though...

my mint marbles have the nicest branching, but my black halfmoons have the most even balance. the male is what they call a symmetrical. his anal fin looks exactly like his dorsal
like this except h's black

the mint marble coloring is better though. the female is exactly half blue/green on one side and then white on the other with black specks on the white side. her head side is white and her tail side is blue. i have no idea what to pick!!

Do you have pics of them? You can do a poll to see what color people like best...

no i do not. I could never get decent pics of them because they move so much. and the mint marbles are brand new and want them to settle before I take pics. but off of description what would you prefer, since you are the nicest one to respong to my thread.

On my list is a black/blue orchid CT male... Just sayin'.... ;)

I'm also a HUGE sucker for marbles, especially halfmoons! So if you did either of the marble pairs I'd probably have to get one from you. The U.S. doesn't have that great of selections on them and you'd be saving me in shipping!

Depending on the look of the red marbles, I might lean towards the mint marbles. Sometimes the red marbles look off to me.

I think I'd cross the mint marbles first and wait on the black pair. Have you bred before? Just curious since it is best to go for colors that are easy to find homes for if you don't have many outlets for getting them homes. Most prospective buyers (who aren't breeders) go for color first :)

Awesome, are you able to ship out bettas? Do you sell on Aquabid? Sorry, I'm new to the forum so I don't know people's histories x/
