My next spawn
And to anyone who has been reading this log, here's a preview of my next couple of spawns.
Pic #1 HMPK Red Koi sibling pair- I don't have a picture of the female yet, but will update when I have one. The fish pictured is the male
Pic # 2 HMPK Super gold sibling pair- Pictured is the female, I do not yet have pictures of the male. I will update when I receive the pair
Both pairs should arrive this week. The Tiger Koi pair is from Thailand, and the super gold pair is from an awesome breeder in the U.S. I normally don't have my head turned by U.S. bred bettas, but I am a big fan of the female. She has a couple of minor flaws, but nothing that can't be improved upon. I've always wanted to work with golds, so I'm pretty excited about this :) Her and her brother are out of two gold bettas, and according to the breeder, that breeding resulted in all gold babies, so I imagine my pair should produce 100% gold in varying shades.
With the koi pair, I don't really consider the male a koi, but that's what the breeder had him listed as. Whatever he is, when I saw him, I just fell in love with him. Proper koi bettas should have a far greater amount of white, but for whatever reason I am more drawn to the ones that have lots of red and black. The ones that are mainly white just don't do anything for me. Regardless, the pair should throw at least a couple like dad. I have read so many contradicting theories about koi bettas. Many say you won't get any kois in F1, but since the pair are siblings, I believe this would be considered F2? So hopefully I get more like dad.
I will update with more pictures and create separate spawn logs once I get the pairs conditioned, just wanted to give a little sneak peak into my future plans.
Just a note, neither picture was taken by me, both are from the breeders, Bettapro Thailand, and Bettabunker.
