That's right. Most of the breeders here in this forum breed for show conformity and beauty. We don't fight our bettas either.

In general fish don't suffer from inbreeding for several generations. Maybe your next babies you can 'outcross' and find another betta who has the looks you really enjoy to keep them healthy and happy.

If you breed silings You take the good and the bad. If both parents have good gentics you'll be fine. But if both carry recessive/hidden bad genes like messed up spines, you'll see alot of that in the fry. It depends on the gentics.

if you got a pair of fivestars they should be in good condition and will breed for good fry.it doesn't cause anything bad in and of itself.


I personally love the look of fighters, they looks different then the ones that have been crossed to HM's for many generations, and their colors look more natural. If you do spawn the pair I would love to see a spawn log from you about it, with notes on how the agression they're bred for specificly effects breeding(for better or worse).

This forum does not support or advocate breeding for fighters or fighting fish period. I suggest you try another forum.

I don't know exactly how you plan to 'pet only' your bettas when in your original post you talk of fighting them. It's pretty obvious you only want to fight them.

In this situation I'm not sure what the op means by the term *fighter*. Some people refer to bettas as Fighters, even though they aren't fighting them. I hope this is the case here. There may also be a language barrier here.

In alot of places they call them fighters. and five stars are a type of PK, bred from fighting lines but they're really nice fish none the less. I was tempted to buy a pair once since the seller could ship right to my house, no transshipper needed. But I ended up going with a dragon PK from petsmart instead.
