    I got Allegro from PetSmart about a week ago. And all I know about him is that he's a twin tail half moon and his name perfectly suits him. I went searching to try and figure out what his color pattern is, but nothing seemed to match him. I would really like to know if anybody can help me. Allegro:

    Saw this dude at my local PetCo! I wish I could have taken him home. His colors remind me of a cloudy sky.

    I picked up this handsome butterfly at a petco my boyfriend and I had dashed into trying to find a replacement bulb for his split tank. I had found a white halfmoon I thought was adorable, but on a second pass after being disappointed by the condition of their moss balls, I noticed this little...

    I was at Walmart a few days ago and every now and then, I like to check out the bettas they have there, just to see what kind of colors they come in, and since I want to add a male betta in my 20g tank in the near future, every now and then, I come across a few pure white ones, I'm not sure if...

    Hello betta fish community! New member here, but I've been reading threads on this site for about a year or so now. I finally decided to join seeing as I am taking my betta hobby to the next level; breeding! I'm going to be very picky, as any new materials and fish will be coming out of my own...
  7. Breeding Betta Fish
    So after loads of research, thoughts and planning I have decided to breed my beloved male betta fish. I am looking to find a potential female for him and after going through colour genetics information, I find myself a bit confused as to what I should get for the results I am looking for. My...

    Hi all. I have a pretty yellow girl that I picked up at Petsmart a couple of months ago. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw a pretty yellow betta sitting on the shelves! Usually the bettas there are blue, green, or other boring colors. I brought her home and named her Tangerine. Over the last...

    I bought a male beta almost 7 months ago, and he was crystal white and beautiful and his fins were full. And he's been perfectly fine until recently, he's started to change colors on the border of his tail to a yellowish. And now it's changed to red and it looks like his tail fins have almost...

    Hey everyone, I'm planning on starting a sorority sometime soon but I have a few questions first. 1. I'm using a ten gallon tank. How many females would you recommend for my sorority? I was thinking six, but i heard somewhere that odd numbers work best. True? 2. Will I need a filter? And this...

    So I noticed that Mojo has a greenish white-ish coloration (Well it looks like color) to him near his ventral fins and it's slowly spreading up his face. He's had a bit of this color ever since I got him like 2 months back and none of my other fish have it. He also looks like he has some scales...

    I used to breed and sell bettas in the '50s and '60s and am now trying to help my grandsons do so also, but I am disappointed at the poor color purity and fin patterns in the fish generally available. I used to have a booklet on betta genetics, primarily colors, by I believe a Gordon Myers...

    hi, it's been a while and generally my betta fish, Leo, was doing amazing! he can now swim through a hoop :-D But yesterday he did something that really alarmed me... i was just feeding him a pellet when all of a sudden the sight of my hand seemed to alarm him, and he began darting around the...

    Is the overwhelming feeling that I have the best looking Betta normal? Klaus is just way too adorable to me. (He's arriving to me by the 16th-18th of the month.) :lol:

    My little betta fish Puddin' was pure white when I bought him First he looked like this: Then this: Here he is now: ANYBODY KNOW WHY? :shock: Could it be the red gravel or that he's maturing? Guess I'm glad I didn't end up naming him snowflake :lol:
  17. Breeding Betta Fish
    I'm not really thinking of breeding my bettas, but I was just wondering how the fry would look if I did. Both bettas are from petsmart so they're not show quality, but I think they're pretty. What color and tail type do you think the fry would be? Here's my girl, Celestia. She's a CT, but...

    I got up this morning and went to say hi to Fishie. I noticed the edges of his gills were white. I gave him a couple of pellets, which he ate enthusiastically. Actually, the second one, he spit out, then he swam at me flaring, then he swam in circles around the pellet while flaring, then he ate...
