  2. How does colors work in Betta Breeding?

    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...

    Betta Chat
    Hi all! I just got myself a fluval spec and decided to go with a planted tank. Right now its up and running and getting a cycle going, and when its all done I want to get a betta for it. Only problem is, I want to make sure I get one that really pops under the lighting. The LED lights are mostly...

    I was just curious what everyone's favorite colors, patterns and tail types are. Personally, I like EEHMPKs the best, my favorite color is shimmery turquoise, and I like marbles and dragon scales.

    Breeding Betta Fish
    Hi guys, I'm new to bettas and having a hard time understanding all the genetics behind colouring. Please feel free to link me any good sites. We have a very limited selection of bettas where I live. I have seen the occasional one that wasn't red or blue they were: -blue & yellow -white...
  6. Help! What color is my betta?

    Betta Chat
    Hello everyone! This is my new betta! I was just curious what his coloring is called. Does he look like he will marble? His container said Halfmoon Betta but his fin is not a 180 degree spread? Does that mean he is a delta tail? Also his eyes are a little bit popped out, is that popeye...
  7. Marble or Grizzle? Just Pastel?

    Betta Pictures
    Hello! I just got a new betta from a local fish store, and he is very beautiful! But as I moved him from his cup to his tank , I noticed his color changed depending on how the light hits it. He can go from blue to pink to green! I was wondering what this coloration would be called.
  8. Sex and Breed of Fry

    Betta Fish Care
    I just got a fry that was marked as a male. However, from what I've read, it's not easy to sex them at his age, so I'm taking that with a grain of salt! However, I was wondering if anyone has a general idea of this little guy's sex or breed. I'm guessing crown tail but I have no clue! Also...
  9. Scales turning silvery/gray? Surface film?

    Betta Fish Care
    I recently got a new betta, Milton, about a week ago. I put him in a cycled and heated 10 gallon tank with a marina s10 filter turned to half flow. He seems to be pretty healthy and active so far, exploring and such. he's even blown a bubble nest in the corner of the tank. But I'm worried by a...
  10. What color is my fish?

    Betta Pictures
    I can't figure out what color my fish Cain is, his blue eyes just mess me up. I was thinking he was cellophane or pastel, but considering they usually have black eyes I wasn't sure, and also I don't think he's albino because he doesn't have red in the middle of his eyes. I'm just really...
  11. Which color/type is the healthiest?

    Betta Fish Care
    Does anyone have so much experience that they have an idea of what color or type is healthiest. With all the breeding for type/color I'm sure there are some lines that are known to be un-healthy. What do you think?
  12. Help! Is my fish sick or not?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi everyone! I'm new to this site, but I have a Betta that has been doing decently since I got him from Petco. Took him a week or so to start swimming, but since then he's been swimming a lot and pretty happy. I've had trouble with keeping this brownish grey slime in his tank away, but I do...
  13. My New Betta :) Color Pattern?

    Betta Fish Care
    This is Viggo. He's a super delta tail. I'm doing a fish-in cycle with him following the two sentence tutorial, so far he seems healthy, exploring his tank, flaring a little bit but nothing major, once almost got stuck between the filter and tank wall, but got out by himself, and I readjusted...

    Hello everyone! It's been a long time since I've made a post here! However, I do stalk quite a bit ha ha... The past year I've had a few unfortunate cases where I lost some betta pals due to illnesses and tank diseases. The last betta I lost, Leopold, was an absolute heart breaker for me...I...

  16. Possible Marble Gene???

    Betta Pictures
    I just bought this new Betta about 2 weeks ago. When I first got him he was almost all white, now he has lots of dark blue spots. I have read a lot about how bettas can change color after coming home from the store. But to me he looks like maybe he could have the marable gene. Any input would be...

    Breeding Betta Fish
    Alright, I just bought a new male betta at a local pet store (I now have four all housed in their own filtered tanks of course) and his personality and coloring are really growing on me. I want to try breeding him to produce more that are like him. My plan is to buy a halfmoon female for him and...
  19. Color genetics question

    Breeding Betta Fish
    Hello everyone! I have bred betta before so I am familiar with the process. This most recent spawn is different from my others because I have crossed two bettas of different fin and colors. Usually I stick to fish that are similar. I have bred this male fish below to a royal blue female. This...
  20. What Color Betta is Edgar?

    Betta Chat
    Sorry for the poor quality of the photo, but what on earth do you think Edgar's color is? (His color is still coming in on his head and upper back, but everywhere else appears to be his normal color). We got him about two weeks ago from a pet store. He came infected with velvet and we didn't...
