Finding a mate for Betty

I am getting a new male VT soon and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of what color to get? Here are pictures of my female VT Betty.

Ahh yes, Betty :p Well, what colors do you want to find? Do you want to enhance her colors, and the chances the fry will get it? Or you want a "surprise!!"? lol. You can try finding a male with metallic, or tri colored, or darker colors than hers.... It's really up to you, and what you want :) So... do you want her colors in the fry? :p

Well I was going to breed my Pineapple VT to Betty because I had no idea what the fry would look like and I like surprises but I bought another male VT yesterday and I am pretty sure he is the one I will be breeding her to.Im guessing the fry will look like both the parents.They match eachother pretty well

he is definitely a pretty one :) I was going to breed Crayola to Madame, for a "surprise" batch, but I chose Maine who matches all of her colors except her metallic, especially since he has a nice VT tail. She's a plakat ><

I would love to see you have that color come out in fry :) That is a really nice color (to me anyways)

so purdy but you don't want just VTs since it will be hard to sell the fry for instance:

this is oceanist, oceanist is a HMPK he will make grade A babies or like

this is chili and he is just a HM which i prefer

hehe I got my breeding/spawning log up :) even a short video clip. I will be getting dark bettas...

And also, I was warned not to mix tails unless you want to breed a betta from the spawn for a better version... like, they say CT and VT, or rather CT with anything is iffy. But you know what, I'm breeding from "the heck is that background??" bettas :p so yeah. Go with color, if you wanted. I wanted Crayola's colors, but Maine's tail is a heck of a lot better...

It won't matter in the end...VT genes are so screwed up shell throw any possible combo of colors.

Yeah true xD Which is why for my spawn, if some fry end up "the heck did you come from??" I'll be more intruiged than surprised....
either way, it'll be a cool surprise for you too platinum! if you really want her color, match her with that male. Then you'll get that, and then some.
