Well, I also have two other girls to possibly use-- I'm about to go take some more photos. What do you guys think would match with this one?






I couldn't get a full flare, but.

I still think the first girl is a bit nicer, but these are amateur eyes! :)

Male number one has the best fin and form. His only fault is too small of a dorsal.

How does this guy compare to Male1 finnage/bodyshape wise?

I would stil prefer to breed the blue female with male 1 as he has better and stronger finnagge and body shape IMOl the coloring of male one also contrasts her coloring and extrordanary results will be exhibited as a result of this spawn

I've never bred bettas, so I have no idea really which would work to get what but I tend to agree for color and the best guess I can make comparing the pictures to show standard pictures: male 1 with female 1. ( Rant: don't know if they are IBC show standards because I have no access to that site and they don't share info unless you give them money- and I still don't know what the fees are used for because the page I can access doesn't say!!!)

I can't really tell by the angle in the violet colored pic a few posts above this if his face is really long or not but it looks like he has a bit of a spoonhead thing going on, which could be fixed with the right female? (I have NO idea what female that would be though since I've never tried breeding, but i'm guessing a female with a really nice topline??)
His tail looks a bit long too and I read off of attisons site (I think) that bettas with longer tails might have problems supporting them when they are older?

Fun post btw, sorry for chiming in when I shouldn't have but I couldn't help it! ;)

Good luck with your spawn when you get the male though! (whichever one you pick)

I agree with this.

The first male would be the best bet with the first female. They would have a better "steady" color and the fins wouldn't be as crazy and bad as the rest of the males. It's had to get red wash out of bettas so again I'd just stick with the two I, MrVampire, and Kfryman has suggested.

That steel blue HM male doesnt look very nice mostly because of his dorsal, but the first male you posted has nice color and finnage with the dragon scaling and the caudal being a nice full 180 spread.

I'd go for male one, he has the nicest fins and coloration relating to your female.
