Default Introducing Robin

....my new Betta. He was labelled a Crowntail, but it turns out he may be a crossbreed. His fins are quite different and beautiful. I'm considering breeding him, if I can find time to do some research.

He looks cool Sharon Do you have any crowntail females you could use to breed with him?

I used to have a betta that kinda looked like him, he was a steel blue color and was labeled as a female because of his short fins.

I used to breed bettas so if you have any questions I will try to help.

Thanks...I have the five girls, but I've got to google tail type...I've no clue what they are. They were labelled Female Bettas. Cole, if I decide to breed, I'll have lots of questions for you! He's in his own tank, Ses. If I'd put him with the girls, he probably wouln't have such pretty fins, now!

I've been told on another forum that he is something special....some think he has Quad Crowntail in his genes. Here he is in flare mode!
