    Breeding Betta Fish
    So about a week ago i put my male and female betta in to breed. I had a really big and successful batch of fry but unfortunately only around 10 or so survived. I wanted to open my tank to my male betta to recover so i figured the rest of the babies were going to die off. Side note i also keep...

    Betta Spawn Logs
    Hello, This was my first time spawning bettas and the goal was to see what colors I would get if I mixed a purple-red male with a blue female. These were common petstore bettas which made this experience all the more fun- I had NO IDEA what color combinations I was really going to get! :smile2...
  4. Please Critique My Male

    Breeding Betta Fish
    All recent. He’s in great condition right now. I think he may have marble genes. One thing about the photos is they don’t show his pearl incandescence that is really striking in person. It gives off a well, pearly, shimmery tint to his body. I’ve never seen anything like it. I plan on breeding...
  5. Is dragon scale gene recessive or dominant?

    Breeding Betta Fish
    Thinking about crossing a dragon(thick white scales on body, large red fins) with a non-dragon(metallic turquoise with red fins). Both are halfmoons. Is this likely to produce more dragons? Or is the trait recessive? Ideally I'd want some dragons, not all of the fry have to be dragons, but I...

    Breeding Betta Fish
    So I currently have a tank set up with a separated male and female. I've been in the "Introductory" stage for nearly two weeks now and the male, instead of displaying in a courting manner is flaring his gills aggressively and bites the glass trying to get at her, when he isn't busy hiding in the...

  20. Cellophane Breeding Pair

    Breeding Betta Fish
    I recently ordered a cellophane breeding pair from Becky's Bettas. The two are goregous HMPK. The only flaw in the finnage is a little split white tip on the end of one of the male's ventrals. There are no spots on either, absolutely pure cellophane. I was led to believe they may carry the koi...
