Just a curious question of mine. I was thinking about bettas and their colors and how not everyone has the same preferences (some are frightened by the clear ones while others fall for them, some prefer solids and some like marbles or multis) and I was thinking about what it's like if you were to successfully raise 100 fry..that are all nearly the same color and pattern wise!
I really like seeing a lot of variety, as I don't have a specific color that is my favorite, I just like to see lots of colors of different fish!
I was curious what pairing in your experience has led to the most baffling amount of colors and patterns in a single spawn? I've seen multi pairings where all the babies were nearly identical, each having a lot of colors--but each having the same colors and near same pattern. And yet I'll see two bettas of the same color have babies of all sorts of colors!
I guess it comes down to the genetics of the colors, huh. I know certain colors, like purple, are a mix of blues and reds and all those genes mixing perfectly, which is why they don't usually throw purple babies.
Sorry I ask so many random questions on here! Just random thoughts that run through my head!
