Re: Betta photo contest

As you wish,lol.
Retired breeders.The other female is not in a photo mood today.
Red dragon male.Hes about three now.Good gentle breeder,but would freak when they hatched and would eat the fry.


Female turquoise halfmoon.She was a very willing breeder.Shes almost two now.


Mahachai male chilling under his territory.


Then another male came near,so he had to flare!


If you look,they have fin damage.This is not from other males,its flaring too big for the females and ripping them.Brats,lol.They are breeding too,but other females are sneaking into the nests stealing eggs.

And thats all for today.

Re: Betta photo contest

Here are my two bettaautolinker.com autolinking image that I have now. I've had a cellophane halfmoon, a blue and cellophane, marbled butterfly halfmoon (aka a really pretty mutt), and a red veiltail. Sadly they are no longer with me

Anyways, my bettaautolinker.com autolinking image now are:

Sushi. He is kind of a rescue (he was a class pet living in a bowl). This photo was taken when I was attempting to breed him, but it didn't work out (it was the female!), now he's in a five gallon.




Here is my, as of yet, unnamed turquoise halfmoon! He's gooorrgeeous.




5 gallon: violet male veiltail betta
5 gallon: platinum male delta betta
20 gallon: turquoise male halfmoon betta, five harlequin rasboras, four otos
20 gallon: red and black crown tail male betta, halfmoon doubletail male betta (on the other side of a divider, of course)
55 gallon: baby black ghost knife fish, two angelfish, three German Blue Rams, five black neon tetras, five glowlight tetras

Re: Betta photo contest

eh, I have been told several times that I should breed him, but I have two problems with that:

1) I have tried, and failed, to breed before. It basically ended in an over-aggressive female pretending to be ready, then shredding the male to bits. So, I know how to set up a tank and prepare for breeding, how to feed them, etc. But, I don't have a clue how to care for fry. My first breeding attempt was with two random bettaautolinker.com autolinking image that weren't that great anyways, I'd hate to mess up with such a pretty bettaautolinker.com autolinking image

2) I have yet to find a halfmoon female.

5 gallon: violet male veiltail betta
5 gallon: platinum male delta betta
20 gallon: turquoise male halfmoon betta, five harlequin rasboras, four otos
20 gallon: red and black crown tail male betta, halfmoon doubletail male betta (on the other side of a divider, of course)
55 gallon: baby black ghost knife fish, two angelfish, three German Blue Rams, five black neon tetras, five glowlight tetras

Re: Betta photo contest

blackghostbetta maybe your not letting them see each other long enough before breeding how long do you put the side by side so they flare at each other?

Re: Betta photo contest

I had them in a twenty gallon tank for probably a good week and half, the female was in a little itty bitty 2 gallon bowl that I put inside of the twenty gallon, and the male responded right away with a really nice, HUGE bubble nest. I thought she was ready, she appeared to be quite round, but as soon as I released her into the tank she freaked out. The male was trying to lure her near his nest, but whenever he got her close, she woud rip a big hole right in the middle of it. I thought that maybe she just needed more time, so I put her in the bowl again, he built another nest, and tried again three or four days later, but she did the same thing. Maybe her overall "largeness" that I took for being full of eggs was actually just her getting chubby from the bloodworms.

5 gallon: violet male veiltail betta
5 gallon: platinum male delta betta
20 gallon: turquoise male halfmoon betta, five harlequin rasboras, four otos
20 gallon: red and black crown tail male betta, halfmoon doubletail male betta (on the other side of a divider, of course)
55 gallon: baby black ghost knife fish, two angelfish, three German Blue Rams, five black neon tetras, five glowlight tetras

Re: Betta photo contest

let her in her separate quarters but still in his view, maybe even if it takes 2 weeks, I sometimes keep my females so long that they start to loose eggs because they get so excited and what to breed it never hurts to let her sit a bit longer, its better to be safe then sorry.
