If you feel up to it, you might breed Lucky to Honor. It'd be interesting to see what pops out from that. And since you'd already have bred Honor to Virtue, it won't affect their line. You might even be able to breed out some blue/turquoise long-finned Halfmoons... if you're lucky. Yes, the pun was semi-intentional.

I'll be watching this thread for babies. :)
Hello! Yeah, he's a funny little fish. Gorgeous, too. I'm also really hoping that they play nice - I'm a bit nervous with a male as large and aggressive as Honor! And thanks for the compliment on the names. I'm going to continue the theme for my white HM line until I run out of words.

Thanks for watching this thread.

I've actually thought of that! If the spawn goes well and Honor is a good father, I might breed him to Lucky. I'd love to see what the babies would look like, considering that Lucky looks like a mostly colored-in marble. I'll probably wait until the babies grow up, though, so it won't be until maybe March or so, assuming my first spawn attempt goes well.

(And I liked the pun, lol. )

Probably, yes. I'll most likely keep a few females and the nicest male for myself, and then sell the rest. I'd love for them all to go to members on here, though I did find a LFS that can take extras.

Ooh, will you be breeding your pair, too? I'd love to see photos of them when you get them. Thanks for the interest!

Thank you! I think adorable free bettas are my favorite type of surprise.

Also, I just read this article. It's a bit long, and some of the charts are pretty complex, but I thought it was very interesting...it's about the creation of white opaque bettas. http://www.bettysplendens.com/creati...ite-betta.html

I introduced the pair today! I was going to wait until Wednesday, but I realized that I'll be pretty busy on Thursday and Friday, and I wanted to make sure I was around to watch the bettas when they're together. I put Virtue in a breeder box, and stuck both of them in the 5g at around noon. They started wiggling and flaring at each other within 2 1/2 hours, so I let Virtue out.

They've spent most of the afternoon dancing, flaring, and chasing each other. Honor's been working on a massive bubblenest...he wore out Virtue a bit by making her inspect it after every 2-3 bubbles. She's starting to approach the nest more though, and she keeps charging at him and flaring. I think they'll probably - fingers crossed - spawn by tomorrow. I took a video of their courtship behavior - I'll post it once I figure out how to get it from my old phone to my new computer.
