I don't advise it either. But from what I have read, even when breeders breed quality betta: they still aren't sure what colors they will end up with.
For example one of Hung's batches from Mustard gas spawn most of these fish are from the same spawn unless otherwise stated. Look at the colors

I am hoping to get some of these fish if he has some left.
WOW Allie, some of those bettas are AMAZING!!

Wish I had an available tank!!

Wa-hoo -- I knew my boy Dunn was more than a pretty face!!!! That would be soooooooooooooooooo wonderful to get one of his babies.

Now I think I have to go put my Dunn tank top on and have a glass of winde to celebrate.

Aren't you the good secret keeper, M'am??? One wonders what you get up to out there under the Phoenix sun??!!

Well done, Karen...it is such a miracle for all of us to follow and feel like we are a part of!! I know how busy this is keeping you, so many thanks again for taking the time to share!!

Val

PS: Dunn, I send you a big finny fishy kissy face kiss!!

I thought I'd update on my Betta babies....

Everything has been going wonderful...The babies are all growing and Grandma (me) is wore out lol...I have about 75 live fry from Shannon my Butterfly girl.. The DunnXDragon lady litter is too small to say just yet...

I'd love to share photos but..... As I was trying to get that perfect close up of my fattest baby I realized my lense was in the water! Shoot shoot shoot lol...I need stronger glasses I suppose...

Anyway, all the kids are thriving and this has been one heck of an experience...Steve calls it the Neonatal ward lol...

I'm planning on spawning my blue pair next...I tried once but she didn't like him so they will try again next week....

Here is the male...

Yikes! I hope your lens will be okay once it dries out and am eager to see pics of the first-spawn darlings! Are they showing colors yet?

I LOVE Blue Boy!

Pam...Can't see colors yet because they are still in the spawn tank...Once I move them into the grow out tank I'll know more about colors...I'm expecting Lavendar/pink butterfly patterns on the fry considering they are sibblings...

Camera...Hummmm Well, I think it is time for a new one lol....

I was finally able to get some shots of the 1st butterfly spawn today...They are 20 days old....They are finally big enough to see without glasses.....Geeeeeeeze lol......

Here are a few of my pride and joys.......One of the boys is going to Rose (Chickadee) I'm sure she will be very pleased with him.....

I'm in LOVE with my babies!

I love fry in general but betta fry just take the cake!

You're doing such a good job with them!! They're wonderful!

Oh my goodness they're adorable! I bet Rose is going to be so pleased. I can't think of anyone would give him a better home.

I am so jealous!! Those little buggers are adorable.
Congrats Karen! You are doing an awesome job!
Maybe I'll have something to brag about in a month or so.
Back to the drawing board I go.
