Which ones do you guys think? Walter (Blue/red/hints of purple and green male VT) with Selena (Blue/red/hints or green female VT) or Patrick (Blue/red/hints of green male HM) with Big Red (Red with small hints of iridescent blue unknown female). I'm not too picky and can't seem to make up my mind, so who ever gets the most votes wins I guess

I would go with the HM male.
IMO, the blue/red/green female doesn't look like a VT to me, the red female looks more like a VT.
While VT bettas are beautiful, they don't sell as well as HM and Deltas.

I have a different post about that girl in particular. lol and the general consensus was that she was a VT just long finned. I'm not too concerned about selling them because a I only expect 5-10 fry to survive (If i even get any this is my first time) And I have a local pet store that wants them.

You might be surprised, some spawns are very large. Best of luck, I'm sure you will have beautiful fish no matter what combination you choose.

Sounds great! I'm a bit worried though about you having time to do the many water changes fry need to grow...

I'm going to employ the help of my boyfriend and use the slow siphon method with a very small hose. I'm also thinking of putting a screen on it or a sponge so I dont accidentally suck up the babies. I'm also going to have my 10 gal tank at half full for the first 14 days

I use an old pair of panyhose when siphoning to keep from sucking up babies, it has worked so far.

Ok I came up with another question. I have frozen baby brine shrimp and Hikari first bites newborn fish food, I'm all good right?
