haha so many options! XD I could always breed one of my other girls with the white boy, I have a royal blue hm female named Belle who is just his size lol. The girls I just bought are too small for him still, he's a pretty bulky boy :P

Peekaboo was just my priority now because shes so fat haha.

I'm not best at decision-making lmao! But, hopefully, Sheldon will be a daddy again :) He was so dedicated to his little ones last time, that he didn't eat for 3 days after I took him away from them lol. Poor guy

Your female is a CT - gorgeous combination (too bad you lost her brother - he's amazing). Though you don't mind fin form now but it would be best to consider it as well. SO I'd say go with male #1 because he is HM. Male #2 is delta. IMO in the long run you'd want HMCT - easier to find homes for compared to dTCT.

Color out come is hard to tell because your female is a combination of several colors. But your #1 male should carry NR genes (if he is a result from combodian combination) so they should produce some yellow/orange fins - depends on who's genes are more dominant.

Yeah I definitely miss her brother! She's got way more character than he did though haha. She's a spunky little lady and loves cuddles (weird?).
I've got them both down in the spawn tank, I've been conditioning all of them for a couple weeks now, I just needed to decide who was gunna go with who haha. I'd love to play around with yellows and oranges. Maybe I could make my own "sherbet" strain! LOL

Here's the two of them together, they havent spawned yet but I thought I'd snap some photos before they beat the crap out of each other LOL.

Another question, what do you guys use for nesting materials? Sheldon only likes styrofoam cups for his, he refuses to use anything else. Picky little bugger...LOL

Thank you! :D
Yeah its funny what bettas prefer. I've tried saran wrap, and bubble wrap, but my bettas just look at me like I'm an idiot haha :) I even tried these big leaves I got from a breeder...almond leaves? I think thats what they were, but the bettas liked them too

Good choice and great picture.

Did you introduce the pair correctly. Sorry but you were deciding on who to breed yesterday and today they are already together in the tank?

The females has no breeding bars in the picture and I don't see a bubble nest... you are right in thinking that they will beat the crap out of eachother. Introducing a pair requires patience from the breeder.
