Jewel Bettas Halfmoons
Happy halfmoon bettas from California
I am breeding the second generation of my line of halfmoon dragon bettas. I chose the parents from a US breeder so the fish would not have to make the trip to California from Thailand and wait at customs. I want to provide a local US source of halfmoon bettas while improving their health and beauty with careful selective breeding. I sell my fish to a local independant fish shop, using the proceeds to buy fish supplies. I also donate bettas and supplies to local schools for classroom pets.
F1 Generation: Malificent x Trogdor
April 11, 2009
Trogdor, the patriarch of my line, is from Texas. He is a partially masked green dragon halfmoon betta. He produced a litter of 40 with an 8-ray green female Malificent, his sibling sister, when they were 4 months old. Trogdor was a champ throughout his fatherly duties and nearly all of his fry survived to adulthood.
F2 Generation #1: Ancalagon x Flint
January 9, 2010
Ancalagon (named after the legendary Tolkien dragon) mated with Flint, a copper metallic 8-ray halfmoon. Ancalagon is a red, blue and black butterfly dragon halfmoon. He has multiple white tips on each of his ventral fins, which is a trait I like. Flint is very friendly and sociable, and like her mom, she helped her mate put the eggs in the nest during courtship. She also builds bubblenests.
