I will be breeding my white double tail male. I am currently conditioning him but I do not know who I want to breed with him. What say you?

Here is my male


This is the white HMPK female


White and red butterfly HM


Orange and black HMPK female


Royal blue marble HMPK female


And the black CT female.



I also have a red CT female that I don't have a picture of

Honestly, I wouldn't breed him.
Your male has a crooked spine and very short body. These are traits that can lead to deformities in the fry.
That orange and black female has great coloring!
Agreed. The short body, and crooked spine is likely to carry to the fry and the fry are likely to be deformed.

Dont be discouraged, its hard to find a good DT. Hes a pretty pet :). With his short body he'd probably have a hard time wrapping a female properly. Do you have any other males?

bl1507- build the house, then paint it.

I'd go with the HM male and the orange marble HMPK female.

and I agree about the anal fin being too long. I bought him off a breeder in another state. He sent me pictures before hand but I'm pretty sure he delivered another fish. Whatever. If I want to improve the anal fin, would breeding a HMPK help?

Yes it will help, it just might take a few generations. Your black does have a massive dorsal.

I'm a DT fan and would love to breed my fish to one but haven't found one I liked yet. Plus I have a few high quality fish here I should concentrate on first... it's just so hard to keep your betta numbers down.

Here's the pic:

Yes, there is definitely a spinal issue in the DT. It also appears as though the steel blue is a rosetail carrier. I would rather breed the black with the longer anal fin than the RT steel, for the sake of deformed fry with short ventrals, short bodies and bad scaling. I'm also partial to black bettas, so perhaps you can find a black copper HMPK female and focus your line on shorter anal fins. =)
