    Also, I am going to pedigree the offspring and I would like to know what colors these two males are. They may (and probably will) be fathers soon.

    Moscow and Persia, my current bettas. I am going to get a reddish one, and maybe one or two others. I'll post some pictures when I get them; that's in about four or five days.

    It's better to have and not need then to need and not have; this is especially true when you're dealing with fish and you need itch medication.

    I know angelfish genetics pretty well, but not bettas :( There's an angelfish genetics calculator that makes it easier, but I couldn't find one for bettas :( I did find these though....

    And
    https://www.ingloriousbettas.com/bet...-and-form.html

    Hopefully it helps. But at any rate, I find learning about dominant and hetero genes, locus and phenotypes helpful. Seems to be consistent across the board, you just have to learn betta genes and stains in particular.

    Honestly, I haven't read it all in entirety, the betta genetics are quite involved when it comes to the tail fins. Here's an article describing tail fin genetics.

    I never knew there were so many kinds of betta tails! I love them all and seriously want to get them all but apace says otherwise. :/

    Going to get one female for now, and wait to get some more later on.... I'll send pics tomorrow say around four o' clock or so
