Sire: Copper black lace HM

(Bluebetta, Thailand)
 
Dame: Platinum white SD
F1, BT040904
(Betta Territory, The Netherlands)
   
 
 
   

The sire is showing a strong HM tail with rosetail features and shows a really nice black copper color. The female is a clean platinum white 8-ray SD (nearly HM spread) from one of my best spawns uptill now (BT040904). The color of the offspring (F1) is going to be a total surprise because I don't have experience with the copper lace and a combination like this. This pair should produce some HMs (some showing rosetail features).

NOTE:
The Sire is already is father of two spawns with my friend Magicbetta in Germany and BT181204.

   
 
 
   

29/12/04: Pair spawned!
30/12/04: Eggs hatched.
01/01/05: Fry in free-swimming stage, removed the sire.

   
   

14/01/05: The fry is 2 week old now and feeding well on artemia.

   
   

20/01/05: Made some pictures of the now 3,5 week old fry. They are growing very good on artemia. It looks like there are about 20-30 fry.

   
   
   

24/01/05: The fry is now 4 weeks old. The fry got their first portion of tubifex today.

   
   

13/02/05: The fry is now 6 weeks old and doing fine. It seems like some of these youngsters are showing a more copper and some a blue color. The blue color wasn't present in the other spawn of with a similar combination (BT181204, platinums used are sisters).

   
   
   

20/02/05: Made some more pictures of the 7 week old fry, which are now developing fast!

   
   
   

27/02/05: I jarred the first male (left picture). I appears that this line also carries marble because one youngster started to marble this week (right picture):

   
   
   

09/03/05: The fry is now 10 week old and several males are jarred.

   
   
   

13/03/05: Made a picture of a metallic blue female (see left picture).
