Well..I can see how it goes and what they say I guess. Maybe if they say ok, you all can help me find a nice one.

I went ahead and bought the beautiful blue-eyed green monster girl I linked here the other day.
I'm going to go into heavy-duty research mode for the next few months and see if I feel competent enough to try breeding her to my first Aquabid boy, who is also a blue-eyed green monster!
Over in the breeding forum, they told me I might get rosetails if I bred them!

Why? He has huge finnage and she's a doubletail. That does not mean you'll get Rosetail offspring. The only time I had Rosetails was when I introduced a Blue BFHM from Petco into my Green BFHM line. No indication whatsoever in his form and finnage but something in his background ruined that line. I'd be thrilled to have those two to do a spawn with. Especially since she only has a 4 ray caudal. That would offset his multiple ray splitting.

I'm not sure why they thought that, and I haven't yet had the research time to find out. I'm glad you think they'd make a good spawn pair, though. I want to go for a line of blue-eyed monsters. :)

That's interesting (and sad) about the dragon scaling over the eyes. Does anyone know specifically why their vision continually declines over time with the scaling over the eye? I understand how the scaling over the eye would cause vision issues but I wonder why they eventually go blind.

I had a gold HMPK from AB with the scaling over his eyes - I had no idea it caused eventual blindness. He always seemed to have trouble finding food no matter how hard I tried to get him to eat, his depth perception always seemed off. Plus, his mouth was misshaped so he had trouble eating his food (even the NLS small fish pellets).

Because the dragon scales end up growing over the eyes. Dragon scales are opaque...not see through. If they cover the eyes, the betta won't be able to see.

I always kind of thought of it as the lenses over the eyes thickening.

Either or, think of it this way. You have some regular old reading glasses on, then, you switch to some light sunglasses, and you keep going to progressively stronger shades as you go. At some point, you won't be able to see much, if at all.

It just sucks for the poor fish.
