I won't breed to red, I don't like reds and red is a dominant color over orange. I'm going to look for a yellow whitened and black butterfly if possible. I will be sure to let everyone know when I find a female and will more than likely offer the fry for sale here.

Definitely don't breed to red. You can try yellow (not sure what you'll get). White will give you some cambodian like color. Black - IDK, but I've heard many breeders cross to black.

Just a note - I wouldn't go with embetta (breeder) he does not know english, and I believe uses an online translator to speak it.

I am trying to buy a few of his bettas and I can't understand what he is trying to tell me - got in contact with Linda O. to try to help. She has a partner who is working on it that speaks Thai

When you look at colour charts like blue+red=purple etc, apply that to your betta's, only slightly different, different colour genes are more dominant than others in bettas, for example, if you bred red x yellow, your fry would be various degrees of reddy orange, depending on which genes are mixed, with yellow being the recessive gene it may not show at all and you may just end up with slightly lighter reds.

Sorry Betty but there is a lot more to it than a color chart. That's why some colors are rare like true orange, purple and green. It sometimes takes several generations to produce the true color or pattern of your goal. I'm still learning too so no offense of course.

So I think based on some of that information I know what I want to do. Since butterfly is a dominant trait and that's what I want, I can breed to another recessive color HM and have good chance at producing a few orange butterfly HM fry.
