I love the one in the middle of the last two pictures (I think its the same fish)

And @wayne I could be wrong but I BELIEVE red is a more dominant color than the mustard gas variation.

so do i. genetically, its not possible. but nobody told the fish.
R (red) is dominant to NR (nonred - NR1 is yellow, NR2 is orange). since the parents were both yellow, they had to be NR/NR. so they dont have an R to pass to the offspring, so all the offspring should be NR/NR. but somehow there is R in their gene pool.

it is.
this is true. but both parents were mustard gas, so they couldnt have had red to pass on to the offspring... no clue how it happened. neither does anyone ive spoken to about it.


got a new charger for my camera, so its back in action. 3 new pics.
my amazing redblue rosetail. this guy has his tail folded and overlapping even in full flare - massive amounts of finnage on him:


and an OHM red blue. less finnage, but the lines are crisper and the colors perfect:


and a cute mustard gas HM:

i really like the one in the bottom right corner. is it possible the red might change later on?
i have what was a really pretty opal (thats what im calling her any way) colored female you can see though her if she is in front of light and has a purple color when reflecting on the body, the her fins started getting tipped in blue and now have some red to them. think she is a marble? ill get a pic in a day or so if it would help. she is just a petsmart betta so nothing fancy

no. red bettas cannot turn yellow. the red or yellow could fade to clear (in that layer) from marbling if the fish is a marble (these arent, to my knowledge), but not change between red and yellow.
opal? probably a pale bodied pastel.
may be a marble, but doesnt have to be for that. bettas colors do change a little as they age. marbling is much more drastic and rapid.

yes. ill post a FS thread when i start selling. but some of the fish will be sold on aquabid, and if i choose to join the IBC, ill send some to shows and auctions. but not to worry when it comes to availability. im spawning the male to female #2 in a few weeks (hopefully).
i would give more pics, but the bettas are VERY active at this stage, never sitting still, and it makes getting a good pic incredibly difficult.

few more weeks. growth is slowing down, since i really should jar a bunch of em, but no time for one more week. then they will be jarred and then growth should be explosive.

itll be first come (or contact, really) first serve - except for the ones i put up on aquabid, obviously; those go to the highest bidder.
and i mentioned before that ill be spawning the same male to another female - hopefully in 2 weeks.

thats a white pastel. the pastel is from a bit of blue iridescence, which gives the powdery appearance; and explains the bluish tint.

I'm not an expert in genetics by any measure but sometimes individual colors can be controlled by several genes. Being as you don't know the lineage of the parents several generations back, its possible that there was enough of the wrong colored genes in the mix!
