Question Let's try this again...

New breeding pairs guys. Please weigh in!

Male 1 - I love the orange specks on his fins, the variance in color in his dragon scaling, and what big fins and body he has. I want to pair him with my orange dalmatian girl, she's got small fins but great dots and scales, I feel like he could help even them out.

Male 2 - I love marbles, his blue color, and his fin definition.

Female 1 - Orange dalmatian



Female 2 - Super blue dragon



Female 3 - Bright orange dragon



Female 4 -

Aw thank you Larsa. I obsessively picked over the females for at least two months. It WILL be my first time! I've been doing lots of reading and question asking, but I've never bred so I hope it goes well..

And I don't know! He's black with slightly marbled dragon scale and orange spotted fins. Does that count as mg?

Oooohhhh!

I'd do the 1st male with the 2nd female, and the 2nd male with the 4th girl. :)
I LOVE marbles! xD

Male #1 is not MG. He's just a multi blue drgn.

If your're looking for form I wouldn't breed male #2, females #1 and 3 because they look as if they have only 2 rays. So I'd go with male #1 with female #2 because she has better body form compared to #4. You should still get a lot of multi colored fry.

But if you want colors..... it's up to you.

I wish I had a knowledge base to comment but I don't. What I can say is, those fish are absolutely gorgeous and seems that no matter what you should come out with more gorgeous fish Best of luck to you either way, I cant wait to see the results.

OOOH, I would do the orange female with the 1st male. It would be intersting to see what the babies would turn out like :)

Is it just me, or is anyone else seeing a pair of TEETH on the last guy?? It looks funny :)

yes yes yes he counts as a mustard gas!!!! Mustard gas are usually bi colored, having any blue shade body and orange or yellow fins. I ♥ them!!! Here is the thread so you can see examples! ( I think someone posted a chocolate female pic in there, but oh well! http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=83328

0.o Breeding for the first time can be very nerve-wrecking! Good thing you are doing lots of research! =D there are plenty of ppl out there who dont do so and just dump a male and female in the same tank 0.o bad bad bad. Hopefully, one of your pairs will spawn and we can see some brilliant dragons =D about 4 months is actually a good age to breed them, but anything over a year usually doesnt often spawn ( unless they are a horn-dog! )

I also have this 8 rayed female, but she's a copper. Indjo, couldn't I just add a better rayed female from the spawn in f2 to fix the ray?
