Lol ok I feel like a horrible betta mommy here.
I wanted some flare pics of my new crowntail I got yesterday.. thought it wouldn't hurt anything if I put one of my females in a cup (no bags so he couldn't hurt her) and put her in the tank for a few secs to grab some pics.
Well, this boy wastes NO TIME. I realized my batteries were down so after I replied to a post on here I went to take her to her normal tank when I look over and see him dancing in the corner tossing a bubble nest! Not even 3-4 minutes of seeing a female..whattda dog.
Now.. sorry boy.. you're pretty..but I'm not breeding you to a veil tail :P
I may look into a crowntail female..but I was wondering what y'alls thoughts on breeding him would be?
I'd like to try a spawn..and if it would be with any male it'd be with him!
It wouldn't be for a while..would need to get everything set up and find the perfect female (and obviously that itself would take a while, lol)
I'll break down the questions here..
-Whats your input on him being bred? (Don't feel you have to sugar coat this. I don't take breeding lightly and want
to know your honest opinion.)
-I see most aquabid breeders have crowntails that aren't full-fin'd and have fins that look like bones sticking out (Best way I could think to say that..) I don't really like that certain look.. I like the way Li's (this male) fins are. Would they be considered weak looking and undesirable in the eyes of other betta keepers?
-What kind of female would you pair him with?
While color is nice.. if I can pair him with a female of nice quality.. color is the last thing I'm worried about..
Here's some videos: (hit the picture to go to the video)
(best flare I could get..he didnt go full flare but it was still a nice try.)
This shows his color better;
Thanks, sorry for the long post!
