So I have owned Betta's for a long time and I finally decided to give breeding them a chance. I did a lot of research and I looked into every kind of breeder and method. I know that many people advise waiting to breed until you have show quality fish but I just didn't want to spend so much money on fish when I am just starting out. That said I have a red HM male that I bought from a very nice fish store here in Austin TX. He is not show quality however he is not a typical pet store variety either. The female is a wild color combination veil tail. She is very, very aggressive and large with beautiful color. I had origianlly wanted to use a turquoise veil tale from pets mart to spawn her with, but she made short work of him after they were left together overnight. He is still alive and as spirited as ever, just with less finnage to sport. So after that incident I took my larger red HM male and put him in there with the female. As I suspected he was to macho for her and after he showed her who's boss they were spawning within an hour. After about 8 hours of this I came in to notice the female guarding the nest and not allowing the male to tend to his nest, so I removed her. The male did an excellent job tending to the nest and the fry began free swimming on the 14th. I have a live plant for inforsia, and I feed a tiny portion of egg yolk twice a day. I clean the tank once a day to keep it clean and keep fresh aged water next to the tank. I keep my fry in the garage to maintain a warm temperature and they seem to be doing quite well. My question is what color combinations should I expect from this breeding?
