    Black and yellow

    Post by Nataliey on Fri Dec 23, 2011 5:54 am

    Iv been looking for a bumble bee betta for a while iv even asked my local MH aquatics to enquire from their suppliers and nothing no one could get one. So now iv decided to spawn a yellow female and a black male to see if i eventually get the desired mix of colour i so badly want.

    They've been wrapping from about 3pm today first wrap was full of eggs this is the males 2nd spawn, for the female this is her first and hasnt been picking up eggs just eating them...not very many though thankfully!

    After almost 4 hours of spawning they are still going strong and shes still dropping lots of eggs.

    Here's a video of the pair


    Here's some photos:

    You never know till they grow out. Yellow is red recessive, I think, black is also recessive. You are likely to get reds mainly but a second generation would probably have yellow and or black. So much for my basic genetics Smile The saying " a little knowledge is a dangerous thing" springs to mind Smile

    I spawned a Melano HM to one of my Gold Yellow DT geno females. The male died before I could breed one of the daughters back to him. I found another Melano HM male and spawned him to one of the daughters to get Black fry. I have a sibling spawn planned from the F1 offspring. They are mostly Green with some that are Blue and others that are Pastel Green and some with a Butterfly pattern. I'll keep you posted to see if the fry come out with both Black and Yellow. These are some of the results from F1.

    He's a beautiful Chocolate. I don't know if mixing Chocolate in with Black and Yellow would work but you never know.

    This is getting closer to what we want in my opinion. http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/auction/auction.cgi?fwbettashmp&1325920509 Needs more Black barring but close.
