So far I have done two "trial" breedings with my red veil tail 'Xyston', and now that i have the hang of it I think it's getting close to trying it for real. Im giving away the last of the 50 babies this sunday so i'll have my breeding tank empty.

The only problem is I have three possible candidates for my male, i'm leaning towards Sirius because i love his colors, but Skye builds the biggest nests I have ever seen, and of course my new opaque is the youngest and therefore most likely to want to breed.

If anyone has any thought or opinions on who I should breed please let me know.

Xyston was mad at being left out...

I would go with Sirius, you don't see mustard gases like that much anymore, but what I have been seeing is a lot of whites, blues, reds and pied.

I second that vote.

How old are they? Bettas tend to lose the urge to mate at around 14-16 months. If your mustard isn't too old I would go for him.

Sirius and Skye are 10 months, Opaque is only 4.

I think I might end up going with Sirious even though that's the hard way lol

Sirius- and if you get any fry that look like him let me know if you'd sell me some!

He is really beautiful! And I am jealous of your white one as well, mine got a lot of red in him as he grew!

Mine is already showing blue on his anal and pelvic fins, I don't think he'll be that pure for too much longer sadly...

I had the tank open up yesterday so I introduced the pair this morning. The has been building his nest for the entire time, and the female has nice bars. I don't know if I should release her tonight or tomorrow after school?

Here is his nest after 8 hours work:

Good luck with the breeding. All your bettas are stunning specimen, and I hope that Sirus gives you some pretty little young'uns. If you need someone to take one off your hands... I'd happy to help.

Your betta's are lovely. I met a gal on another forum a few years back that had 100 Betta's. Can you imagine cleaning 100 Betta tanks. :) NOT!
