Thanks Cajun ^_^ He is my pride and joy. He came from my LFS though there is a good chance he is an import the guy at my LFS said that their stock comes from all over including over seas.

Yeah I remembered that the lighter girls usually don't see stripes. She is still in QT and needs to be conditions. All of them need to be conditioned, the only one shown out of QT are Prince and Thoth

IMO I think pet stores always imported, that's why they can sell them so cheap - but unfortunately they seemed to come from the type of farms that didn't care much. There seems to be a change happening though. PetSmart and PetCo for instance, are selling some pretty quality bettas. Of course they can be improved on, but that is what line breeding is for ;) I have some LPS bettas, and there are 2 I'd love to breed but I just don't think it will happen. I have imports that are higher priority wise for me. I also don't really want to line-breed, and to get the large finned halfmoons that I'd like at affordable prices, well it'd just take alot of work and they wouldn't be so affordable - which is why I don't really want to line breed. I want my bettas on Aquabid or on forums, to sell at no higher than $10 + shipping, instead of the $20+ you normally see. And that really means no line breeding, or I will really be investing a ton of time. Hope all that made sense.

Yeah I understood what you are saying.
I am breeding Poppycock well because look at him, he is beyond stunning to me.
Thoth is a great boy and I thin he is good stock. The others I enjoy bettas and will enjoy breeding. I think they are good stock and should be breed, I doubt I will line breed much. I will with Thoth because I want the DT trait is all.

So with the last set of photos which may do you think would work best with the female there?

I'd breed her with the Silver Dragon Delta.

First major question for this thread from me.
How many plants are recommended for the breeder tank for the female? I am going to live live plants in the tank for the fry, but how many would be suggested for the female to hide in?

As many as feasible is my guess but definitely wait for input from the tried and true breeders here. Don't forget the little fry will eat infusoria and microworms found in the live plants. Oh, and QT the heck out of the plants. Even put them in their own tank and do a treatment of praziquantel to get rid of any parasites or nasties. Read it in a magazine from an aquarist who does outdoor tub spawning. The praziquantel kills the bad parasites like hydra etc. but will leave daphnia and other goodies alive.

Excuse me, I think my cat is throwing up. *dashes*

Haha go run Sakura XD

Yeah I know they will eat things off the plants. I am planning on QTing for 2 weeks before I put them in the tank. I haven't heard of the stuff before I may have to look into it.
