I think that people pretty much try to mate them with a solid orange fish, which I know can be kinda hard to find. Even then, about 50% of the babies turn out Dalmatian

Yea, actually, it looks like Wildfire would do very well, or another female her color. But you should definitely ask some other people on here lol don't take just my word for it.

the female can't have any red in her at all. if she has red, the chances of the fry being visible dals is like.... nothing. they'll be dals, but you won't see the spots. getting an orange gal will increase your chances, since dal females outside of pairs on aquabid is like........ nothing. x:

Aw, so sad. :( She was beautiful, and the perfect color too. Was she just too sick?

i've actually be researching Dalmatians, because i want to breed them. .3. that gal, if she was a true orange and not a faded red, may have been perfect! to get the red spots on the body, you have to had a betta with NO red in them at all. orange is perfect, but you gotta be careful about breeding orange with orange. the reason there's so many different shades in an orange dalmatian, is because of the fact that orange fades after a while.breeding orange with orange, will eventually give you soft peachy-pink. i haven't figured out what color you'd have to breed into the line, to produce crayon orange again...
