:D I even researched how to ship, so I can do that too ^.^ Maybe they'll be the secret combination to purple? A reddish translucent and a purple? Make purple? I told my boyfriend I'd laugh if all the fry ended up green or orange cause that just wouldn't make much sense. >.<

I think I will always prefer breeding petshop Betta's. The surprise is half the fun, right? :)

well, many try their hardest to improve the betta lines. that's why they say not to breed pet store bettas. you don't know the genetics. for all you know, you could pass on horrid deformities to the fry. x: but, i've seen the most amazing fry, bred from a breeder female and a pet store male. they were amazing marbles. <3

That's my way of thinking. How will I know if I don't try? And maybe I'll have one perfect {or you know, really awesome} fry that grows up into a betta that I would breed out again. Never know. We have another male, he's red and purple and blue. But his colors are so...common...that I figured breeding him would just lead to more red and purple and blue for sure. Where as Jazz here might give me something different. I could be totally off...but it's worth a shot. :)

i don't think it's suggested you show them each other during conditioning. x: you'll have to ask around.

Hmm. Perhaps. Or perhaps it's a bit cold; I checked the water temp and it's down to 75 again. I turned off the ac and put plastic wrap over the tank to see if that's it. I know they get "more lethargic" in different temperature water. Then again, this is {to the best of my knowledge since they're both petshop babies} their first spawn. He's been building bubblenests for days though sooo. I'll just have to wait and see.

I think I read they try to breed at 82 degrees, I may be mistaken though.

Mmhmm, I have a heater in there. I had a different one but the light in it flickered...I'm getting it replaced. -_- Whether it's just the light or no, I'm taking no risks.
