I agree, especially since he went to prison. Though we should remember that not all people go to prison for the "right" reasons either. I wonder how he get the marble gene. (What color would the original "solid" pair have to be?) You see it was the mixing of colors.

Also as many of us know, marbles will eventually get to a butterfly pattern in a couple generations. To be clearer, if you have a marble pair that does NOT have such a wide variety of marble on them or in their genes you can get the butterfly gene eventually present. This is why when you explained that he tried to get a black BUTTERFLY, the light bulb just went.

Well a true spawn log update now haha.
I have gotten my WM,MM,BM, and VE in today and at in their new cultures. So those should be ready to use in a few days to a week. Which is about what I am looking at before I spawn. I am looking at starting my spawn next friday or saturday.
I picked up live black worms to feed the pairs to get them conditions. So it really is just a matter of a little bit of time and me getting ready to breed.
This is so exciting I am just a few short day away from being fully ready.

YAY! I have to give you points for being so patient and well collected!

Live blackworms, are they okay to feed fry? I have only heard of these on the forum.

If they are long or too big is it possible to cut them up or something?

Thanks BL2033 I want to make sure I have everything ready before I begin this wondrous adventure.
The black worms are going to the adults I am going to spawn. So far I have been conditioning with their normal food of betta pellets and frozen blood worms. I wanted to get this some live food to brake it up and help with it. The only thing I can get here is the black worms

Yeah, I hear that the commonly known pet stores hold Black worms and frozen blood worms and frozen brine shrimp that was over a pound for $7.

I haven't heard anything about the result of black worms yet so let me know how they work out for color, finnage restore and overall health if you wouldn't mind.

yeah gladly will. Well I think I over paid for them then XD. I picked mine up for 5 buck and ounce, but meh only live food I can get here at this point.
I will let you know if I see any changed in them. I am hoping the live food will help get them in the mood for breeding.

I have never tried live foods when breeding, but have always heard good reports on using them.

Wow $5 an ounce. Jeeze breeding isn't cheap huh.
