Oooooh.

One question, will you be putting the fry from both spawns into the same grow-out tank, or separate ones?

That will depend on how many fry there are. I have 2 55 gallon tanks, 2 30 gallon tanks and a few more on the way so it could be anything at this point. I know Senshi'd spawn is pretty small so I might put a divider in the 55 gal and do it that way. I'd rather keep them separate since I'd like to know who is who.

That makes sense. I'm thinking about sorority girls, and wondering how friendly sisters from both spawns would behave towards one another.

I can see what you mean. I'll probably house the females together once I can tell the difference between the 2 spawns. It looks like I should have 2 really different results considering the pairs I'm working with.

So final call:
Sho X Ebony
or
Anakin X Aoki??

I don't think he is a rT but he does have excessive branching thus might produce some rT - I'm not really sure because the picture doesn't show a full spread. Usually those carrying rT genes have rather wavy caudals (not flat straight) which is apparent when it's fully spread.

IMO you are quite knowledgeable so trust your instincts. You're there to see the fish, I can only judge from the picture and explanation.

I think this might be his full spread... At least, this is what he always looks like whenever he flares, so maybe he is rT.

I have Anakin and Aoki in the spawn tank right now with Sho and Ebony waiting in case Anakin and Aoki don't work out. Anakin has a fantastic caudal so I'd rather breed him then risk it with Sho :)
Thanks Indjo!

I know you've already picked...and this wasnt on your list...but i think Ebony and Anakin would be awesome...some of my favorite AB bettas are those fantastic black and white ones...those two could end up giving some awesome b+w spawn

I'll definitely consider your suggestion, I'm not very concrete on any of my cross decisions. Aoki and Anakin are in the spawn tank right now. Anakin is being really good but Aoki is just skittish (probably b/c Nino >.>) so if they don't work out I might throw Ebony in with him :)
