Second, the breeder's girl looks to be a copper, that would be interesting in the mix!

But the second girl is marble, marble is recessive. So if you breed a marble to non marble, there are smaller chance for marbles. That may mess your pattern up with the offpring (since I believe you want babies like Dad right?) The second is a marble.

Personally, I would go with the second girl. I was offered a female sibling for my new boy and I refused. I picked up another female from another breeder that can correct the flaws in my boy. Being bred to his sister would guarantee those stupid crooked scales lol

No idea on the age though, I am wondering the same thing! It's a horrible time of year to breed Bettas here lol
Marble is dominant. If you add it to a line its gonna show. Marble + marble = marble, solids, and butterflies.

Oooh okay thank you~ I won't be in any rush to breed them, that's for sure... X_X

I don't really mind what I get, surprises are the best!
