Just out of curiosity...
I do have some great males, just "plain ol' pet store bettas"... VT... Such as El Dorado - his finnage is pretty darn great, and his name says it all for color
Plus I have Ghengis - my butterfly VT... brown and purple (hinted with a slight tinge of red, not quite a maroon color) body, purple for his fins which are clear tipped with a soft baby blue... Both backgrounds are unknown.
I would've wanted to breed Riddle, but his finnage is not that great.
a couple questions really...
1. how do I get it so the color yellow (even green is fine) will actually show in the fry? even if multicolored. Is it dominant or recessive?
2. If I got a female betta, whose genetics were not-as unknown, or were completely known, would it in the end help the genes? I'd think it would... But asking just in case =D Not breeding until summer! Just wanted to ask.
