Man, I must have bad luck. I have never seen a Dalmatian betta in real life, and I live close to three different pet stores.
While VTs may not have the most fancy tails, I've heard that they tend to be healthier, so I would have no problem breeding them. :P

That is not true

Even i have a bunch of hm, hmplakat and ct, i have 2 spawns dragon from vt genes. 1st pawn, i used a red gold male vt plus a female hm red dragon.
2nd spawn, i used a blue male vt plus an orange dragon hm female.
I thought that was a good mix, let see in few months how the fry coloration will look like...?

I don't think it's so much that people don't like breeding VT as there's such an abundance of them in pet stores that it can be difficult to find good homes for possibly 100+ VT babies

o.o I think one day when I have space and more head-smarts I'll try to spawn them! Obviously, with my luck I'd end up with a ka-jillion baby fishies and wanna keep them all!

The numbers go down after culling and deaths from weaker genes or illness, but yeah. always keep in mind"what if i get 100+ healthy fry? can i find homes for any healthy, but not show/breed quality fish?"

Because i cull any deformed/under sized/unwanted coloring and such fish, my spawns are relatively small. 25 or less fry.


On the topic of dals, i've never seen any at the shops here. They sound interesting to breed, but wouldn't fit into any of the lines i'm working on. I'm currently breedig towards a white dragon line. I have 6-7 partial dragon, pk geno, vail tails growing out right now out of a blue mother. I'm hoping one is female to breed back to the dad. The others I'll probably post online for adoption or sell to my local pet store(he takes great care of his fish and would love to have the only dragon vt's in town i'm sure.)
