Orange betta's

I found a really nice Orange super delta the other day and took him home. I know orange is rare so I would like to breed him to a suitable halfmoon female, he is almost halfmoon himself. What is a good color selection to pair with him? I was wondering If I could breed him to a mustard gas butterfly or a marble.

it depends what you are aiming for. do you want orange fry? i would be interested in seeing what would come out of a mustard gas and orange cross.

I love mustard or red and black butterflies, it would be awesome to have an orange and black or orange and white butterfly. I may have to spawn a few generations to get some good ones.

Yellow and orange are gorgeous but hard to maintain (the real deep yellow/orange - not cellophane like). I've often heard them being outcrossed to other colors to maintain it's intensity. But as you said, you would need to breed a few generation to get that "perfect" desired color.

I suggest you use a very good female - 8 end branching, so when you come up with the color pattern you desire, you won't have to worry about their form.

Yes!! Im so happy, Naran is a HM I hadn't actually seen him spread his fins so I didnt know until I placed him next to my other male to take some pics.(he was labled delta, saved me an extra 4$) He is so pretty I hope I can find a suitible female, it would be a shame not to breed him.

Well if you are going for color and still care about finnage, i would suggest breeding a light colored female or a red female that has very wide branching.
From what i counted, she has 8 or 9 rays.

Like the female in the link below:

The female below looks like a better female for your male.

I don't know anything about breeding and crosses I just wanted to say he looks just like my orange boy but he's a Vt. Gorgeous. I would like to throw my hat in that ring to purchase a baby when and if you spawn!
