the male is not a plakat. that is not the actual male of the green lace. that is just what the males color looks like. and the red marble male has now developed into a halfmoon. i guess from all the flaring he is now 180 degree spread. so what pair do you want me to breed next weekend, darkmoon??

haha, ah I assumed that was also the betta's fin type as well.

Are all your fish conditioned for breeding? That takes at least 2 weeks. I like red marbles personally, but I think you would have better luck with the green laces.

I love both pairs! Puh-weaaase do one of the marbles C:

Because if they're ready about 4 months from now I could most likely buy one. I'd love to, just have to see about space! I could have no space, of I could have (3) 2.5 gallons open or a space in a 10 gallon.

Seriously though, those mints are amazing! And people love that color, I think they'd find homes fast.

I would definitely breed the first picture (yellow-blue), he has amazing fins. Pair him to a symmetrical female with less ray branching BUT has "pointed" caudal edges. .... try not to lose the "leaning forward feature" of the anal and dorsal in your F1 - you only want to reduce the caudal branching.

Color is not really a problem because to my knowledge breeders often mix blue - black - yellow. Further color can later be achieved (easier) but maintaining superb fins is a different story because external factors play a great role on their development.

i think the top two for me are the mint marbles or the red halfmoons. but i will still take a full poll on it.

Oops .... ...... 100 bucks!??? wow!

But I still hold the opinion that you should work with the best finnage you've got. Once you're satisfied with your line, you can concentrate on color.
