Well got my sponge filter set up now. So the tank is up and running ^_^ officially as of today. Got the heater in it set to 72 or so for the white clouds, plants, and snails. I have the sponge filter set up and going. The tank is full of plants, and good things. Can't wait to get breeding.

On the first page you can see my first pair.
They are HMPKs green, blue, bit of gold, and red/orange fins. The male is dragon scale.

Ahh I see. I just forgot. So that is the pair that you decided to start off with.

Their fins are also nicely even. Good choice.

No worries.
Yeah that is my starting pair, then in 2 months I will spawn the blue marble pair. then 2 months after that, probably a crown tail pair. I am thinking my white boy who had a purple stripe on his tail with my dark green/black mustard gas CT girl i just got.
I will be spawning every 2 months or so. So as one tank comes available the next spawn should be about ready to go. This way I always have fry on hand to sell.

I went in and talking to one of my LFPs who just changed hands. I was talking to the owner about her fish section (which is under reconstruction) and told her i was going to be breeding bettas. She replied with, "and why aren't you supplying my bettas?" So looks like she is very interested in me being her supplier. Which is great. They are a very nice LPS.

You're way ahead of where I was when I attempted my first spawn several years ago. You're doing great!
