Considering breeding. Pick a mate....

So, I am considering breeding at the suggestion of my LFS. They have beautiful bettas and he has seen pics of mine. He said he would purchase them if I decided to. So...no decision yet but here are the pics & I'd like to know based on what you see...which male would you breed with the female? Thanks!!!

I would say male 2 or the last one (by the way, is he missing an eye or is his coloring over his eye?).

The female is the same one in both pics. :)

Yes, my male is missing an eye. We saved him...and he was free because he was "deformed". I think he's beautiful!

Oh, I agree. I was just wondering. Since he looks to be dragon scale I was just wondering if it was over his eye or if it was actually missing. I wonder if that might make it a little harder for him to care for the eggs though. It's worth a shot, and if needs be you could cull or artificially hatch if it becomes too much for him.

I really like him and the blue dragon male best. I like #2 as well....but I have no idea if he is a regular pk or dt. There is a split in his tail....makes him look a bit weird. He is smart though, taught him today how to jump for his food. It's pretty cute.

He looks like a mild Double Tail plakat at the very least. I just think his color would go best.

the blue dragon kinda looks a little sloppy with his dragon scaling going onto his anal fin, that was my only problem.
