I have been wanting to breed bettas for a while now. I had originally intended to have my first spawn over the summer but life got in the way. Finally, I have the time and the energy to ensure that the parents and their fry get the attention they deserve.
My female is a black and blue-green (depending on the light) halfmoon dragon. She's just an absolutely stunning fish! She was bought locally and I've had her for about a week. She was condtioned and the breeders and I have continued to condition her. She's EXPLODING WITH EGGS! She was housed next to one of my non-breeding boys and he and she firted non-stop. When she released eggs yesterday at dinner time, I moved her to a more secluded spot... don't want any accidental fry! Good to see that she is ready and willing though.
I am getting two breeding quality males tonight. The first is a red copper dragon PK, who is my first choice to breed. The second is a black and white double tail marble.
My spawning tank will be set up tonight - I've got everything ready to go, I just need to add water and the java moss.
Food for the fry is taken care of as well.
I'm super excited! It will probably be another week until I put the male and female together - I want to make sure both of them are in perfect shape for breeding.
I will add pictures of the lovely lady and the two new boys tonight.
The fry will be avaliable for sale as well. I am in Ontario, Canada so if you are in Canada and are interested, do let me know.
