  1. Breeding Betta Fish
    Hi y’all. So i finally have a successful breeding pair of bettas. I have a blue mustard male betta (Golden Ramsey) breeding with a black orchid female betta (Yin). Strangely enough this is Goldens’ first “successful” spawn. (There have been 3 other females before Yin.) This time however he never...
  2. Betta Spawn Logs
    So I am week 10 into a successful spawn but have counted only one hmpk fry out of the 60 (a currently cellophane male). This is devastating as I was hoping to get a well formed koi hmpk female out of this pairing to match to an orange base show male hmpk i have. Goal was to improve anal fin on...

    Hi! So i'm wondering if anyone has any experience with breeding HM and HMPK and specifically the colors that the spawn will have. I've got everything ready for the breeding stages, food, equipment, storage , everything but finding the right pair is an issue. I have a fancy HM male which i really...
  4. Breeding Betta Fish
    Hello all, My breeder tank currently has a male and female betta in it. The female is separated from the male where they can see each other. The male has built a nest after 3 hours (going back and forth between her and the nest) and she is showing signs of submissiveness (head down, tail up) to...
  5. Breeding Betta Fish
    Hello, I bred bettas 20 years ago and have worked with fish professionally since then. I got back into bettas for my home hobby (no longer doing it professionally) for the pandemic... I have acquired 3 males and 4 females. I became very interested in the koi and marble as they did not have...

    Is this normal or what? I already removed the female a day ago.
  7. Betta Spawn Logs
    I'm very excited to start my first breeding project this weekend. I have been conditioning my pair Vaudoux (M) and Pumpkin (F) for the last two weeks with frozen food twice a day. Both have a vibrant orange base color (or a pale yellow/red base I suppose). Vaudoux is orange, red, black and white...
  8. Betta Spawn Logs
    The results of this crossing are: -So far just about every fry has a black rim. -There were no fry without metallic sheen, indicating one of the parents has to be + + but not showing yellow. (No green.) Edit: Yellow is a slower color to develop, and some are definitely showing the results of...
  9. Betta Fish Care
    My 10 year old nephew has a beautiful female betta fish in a 5 gallon tank that I helped him set up, and I have a red Dumbo male in a 10 gallon, my nephew asked me this yesterday "Do you think Auri (his betta) and Hamilton (my betta) could have babies?" I said "It's possible" and now he won't...

  11. Breeding Betta Fish
    1: Can the fry eat baby brine shrimp as their first meal? 2: Can I hatch the brine shrimp without an air pump? 3: Can I try limiting the number of eggs the pair lays? 4: I have read that the fry will be OK in colder temperatures and if there is no heater in the tank they will just grow up to be...
  12. Betta Spawn Logs
    Hi all! I'm new here, but I've been lurking for years. I finally reached the point where I was ready to have a spawn! I bought the pair on eBay. After conditioning with bloodworms I left them in the spawn tank with the female in a breeder net. Both fish were showing immediate interest, and the...

    The delta tail gene is recessive, so would breeding a male delta tail male with a crowntail female just result with crowntails? Or rejects?

  15. Breeding Betta Fish
    I recently got 2 female bettas. I put them into a large tank with my make betta. Turns out one of the females was attacking him and eating his tail. I then separated them into the same tank but now with dividers. My male has begun to build a bubble nest and I’m not sure if my female is pregnant...

  18. Breeding Betta Fish
    Hey-- I am interested to know how all of you out there feed your male betta while he is tending the eggs, or if you don't feed him at all. Some say if you feed him, he will be used to food and start to eat the eggs, and others say if you don't feed him he will get hungry and start to eat the...
  19. Breeding Betta Fish
    Hello, I've been doing research, and still can't find the answer. I'm thinking of trying some Betta breeding sometime next year maybe, and I'm just wondering how does the coloring in the Betta fish work? And by that I mean if you add a Blue Betta and Red Betta, would you eventually get Purple...

    Hello fellow members, I am in need of some help/advice. I am very confused at the moment. I have a crown tail pair that has been conditioned for three weeks now. The female has spent many hours in the male's view throughout this period. They have shown to be compatible from the start. It is...
