I have a few in mind. One is and Giant female Koi I already have (pics attached). She is in a weird position in the first pic. And I have 2 more coming from Thailand to select from. I will also be looking to breed a Giant HM Candy Koi as well.

I'm so excited and nervous. Derps Giant Candy Koi companions are arriving tomorrow from Thailand. 3 Males and 2 Females. I really hope they arrive safe and sound.

Thanks, me too!
They were shipped out from Thailand to the Transhipper in California on Friday. They get it Saturday and ship out to me on Monday to be delivered today. These guys have been traveling since Friday It is very nerve wracking.... I will post pics once they settle in as I have their containers ready and waiting. Stay tuned

I read somewhere once that reds are the most sought after when it comes to betta breeding and said they are more “attractive” to the female and more likely to spawn successfully? Is this true based off of your experience with breeding betta?

That looks so cool!! Why are you breading brine shrimp, to feed the baby Betta Fish? Just wondering......
Betta in general love to eat brine shrimp. If you can make your own diy hatchery (which is simple and cheap) you can hatch your own brine to feed your betta giving him live food that wiggles like they eat in the wild.

Hi! Baby Brine Shrimp are one of the best foods to feed the baby Bettas besides micro worms, banana worms, Walter worms, Daphnia, mosquito larvae because of their small size and nutritional value.
The newly hatched brine shrimps are very very tiny so the baby fry can eat them. And they are moving so it also triggers their prey instincts.

Well if you are talking about the Super Reds, I heard they are harder to breed. I tried and he wanted to be best friends with the female.
But I honestly think it is the individual betta that aids or hinders successful breeding. Some just do it readily and easily and others don't for a number of reasons.
But your theory is an interesting one and I never really thought about that.
