I have finally decided to start forward with breeding.... I just finished ordering the last items I needed

I have a 10 gallon tank set up for spawning (with a heater) a 29 gallon as a grow out (heater on the way!) with additional clear 10 gallon tubs (with heaters) for gorw outs for girls (and yes, I have jars for males :lol:)
Microworms and BBS are on the way
Along with HBH Betta bites and Hikari First Bites
I have 3 sponge filters on the way (2 for 10 gals, one for 29 gal)
Im working with a local petstore that does not sell fish (I wil supply them with a certain number and will be able to check on them along with free pamplets created by me on proper care)

Everything is on the way...
So now I have to decide....
WHO????


Here are the options:

The boys to choose from....

Orpheus
Red Dragon HM- Darkmoon








Echo
Marble HM PK - Cajunamy







Gotham
Metalic Black Orchid CT- Walmart









Jackpot <---- only Merle is large enough to breed with him
Yellow/Gold Dragon HM/SD- Petsmart






Dancer <--- to small to breed with anyone other than Dragon or Peanut
White Dragon HM/SD- Darkmoon








The girls to choose from

Dragon
Marble Dragon HM/SD - Darkmoon




Eurydice
*While this girl is GORGEOUS, she is VERY aggressive*
Red Dragon HM - Darkmoon



Omen
Black Dragon HM - Darkmoon





Peanut
Marble Dragon HM/SD - Darkmoon




Merle
Marble HM - Cajunamy











If I end up breeding Gotham (CT) with a female (HM or SD) then the fry I know would be combtail, I would though go back with the fry and either breed back to him or mom to work on fins

So who is your pick?

Female # 2 I think may be to aggressive, so If I decide to use Orpheus (male # 1) then I will use female # 3, she has developed some dragon scaling since that picture and so has the first female who has started to develope a red coloring, Im going to see how she continues to develope before I make a for sure decision on breeding Orpheus

I will probably do the sibling's from Cajun's spawn since they are older...

and I may have someone locally who is interested in females (they have a 150 gallon tank and are interested in starting a sorority in it... Im SO jealous) so I may ask them what spawn they would be more interested in

If you have somone already interested in a number of the fry(like the person who wants the sorority) then I agree with asking who they like more. xD

Thats what Im planning to do... I saw her tank today.. Im in LOVE... lol, my BF has now decided that once we move out of the apartment we will be getting a 100 gallon (min.) to use as a female sorority... she is just switching over to live plants so the tank is still a work in progress, but it is gorgeous... wish I could take pictures :-/
I emailed her pictures of the boys and girls with the "pairs" I have in mind

Gotham x Omen (she is darker than Peanut and has better rays)
Echo x Merle
Dancer x Dragon
Orpheus x Omen, Eurydice, or Dragon (Dragon has started develping a red color so she is prefered if Eurydice will not breed.... she just needs to get bigger!)

I would LOVE to have a 100gal planted sorrority.
But whenmy andmy boyfiend get a place he told me I could tank one of my current tanks with me. xD

I convinced him my 20long would look great as a planted sorority in a living room and my ten gallon spawning tank could go under it with the stand I currently have. >.> And we all know I'll have to have some 2-5 gallons for a couple boys....and if we have a two bedroom a book shelf set up to jar fry in the spare..

He hates my fish xD But since he knows they keep me busy and we're likely going to start in an apartment that won't allow dogs...my fish will keep me from getting cats..which he hates more then fish.

....ah...addiction <3

Lol, my bf is the same way, he sees the bettas as a way to keep me busy so he can play video games and to keep me from getting more dogs
... though he wont admit it... I have caught him sitting in front of the sorority watching the girls :)
