Also I have been researching for the past few months which is why I am asking which would be best mostly for form because I'm planning on doing this in a few months when all are at their top points. I also have frozen brine shrimp and gonna order some live food soon. So please don't automatically assume I don't know how to care for my betta fish seeing Oscar's picture was over a year ago when I first got him and I wasn't joined onto here and thus didn't know any better. Also if you read carefully I stated that they were new aka I just got them from the store so of course they probably have finrot.
Now that I cleared that up anyone have any suggestions? Mostly I was figuring Dot because of the better spread and less damage but with tender care both would be good though Dot still holds the better coloring.
No one is judging you, you did not say you had tanks, based off of the pictures is how we are helping you.
Please be careful breeding though, male bettas are better bred young, and Im guessing your guy is a pet sotre betta which would make him at least two.
Ok... I was just letting you know it looked like they had finrot, you did not post, these are the females, they have finrot so I am treating for that BEFORE I breed
From what I have heard, female bettas should be chosen based off of fin shape.... so I have to agree with using Dot
