I continue to have good luck spawning bettas..... of course the front passing through had nothing to do with it. * :roll:
This brother / sister pair should produce some real show winners next spring and hopefully there will be enough young ones to share.

OHM = over halfmoon
halfmoon = the leading edges of the tail have a 180 degree arc / like a half full moon.

"Line Breeding" (http://www.geocities.com/learntobreed/linebreeding.html)is quite common when trying to "set" traits in a species.
It helps to establish good genetic features (you get a double dose of good genes), it also shows faults as you get a double dose of any bad genes. :lupe:
So if they're as good as I think they are, I'll get some show winners.
If not, I can always pawn them off on you guys *:bsoop:

I used to mess with my younger sister also, but then one day when she was holding her breath while going over the railroad tracks I tickeled her....:?: *:poked:
and she stabbed me with a pencil. * That was 45 years ago and I still have a dark spot in my thigh where the tip broke off. * *:pileobricks:
Now, I don't mess with her if she has a weapon in her hand.

Well, I've beed doing a little reading on Dragon Betta Genetics (http://www.bettaterritory.nl/BT-AABcoppergenetics.htm)
and it seems that beeding double dragons is not a good thing. *Some get deformed dragon scales.
So I rethunk my plans and decided to cross my orange dragons with my oranges (not related, fish are from two different breeder)
TA-Da *The front that came through yesterday just added a little magic. * :lol:
