View Full Version : origin of the orange betta?
06-07-2008, 03:22 PM
Back in the late 90's it was said that we couldn't get orange in bettas because yellow was actually a non-red gene and if you crossed red with yellow and did the appropriate breedings the only thing you would get would be reds and yellows. Â*I am just wondering if anyone knows where along the line did orange come from. Â*I seem to recall that Gilbert Limenco started doing breedings with unique colors but I can't remember exactly. Â*Does anyone know from what genes we got what is now the orange betta?

The orange is a second non-red gene separate from the yellow non-red. Â* There is a lot of speculation going on as to what we will git if we cross a yellow with an orange. Â* Of course the first generation F! will be red (one non-red yellow & one non-red orange gene) or will it ?
I just got a trio of oranges from Gilber and it will be fun to see all the possible combinations.
I wish I could post pictures of them, but for some reason, I have run out of room. Â*:cry:
