Red veiltail with extremely long pectorals

Anybody want to try to bring that trait into halfmoon? It'd be a lot of work. Without a big farm, I think it would take several hobbyists working as a team. There are a lot of unknowns so it's going to be very experimental and possibly frustrating work.

Someone should at least cross it to HM initially just to see whether we are dealing with dominant trait/s here. From there we'll know how hard it might be to conserve the long pecs while developing the rest of the finnage.

I wonder whether longfin is necessary to show a noticeable enlargement of the pectoral. HMPKs would be so much easier for developing the finnage.

I took this male home today :cheer: Thanks Ann!

I will first try him with this female:

"HMPK. Teal, possible Melano/Black Lace, Marble and Light-body carrier. Bred by Stefan Psarakos in Australia."

from this spawn: http://superbbettas.com/SPS001.html

Or one of her young daughters, who carries DT.

I'll set up a spawn tank soon :)

Oh Stefan, I'm super jealous! I've got a goregous veiltail girl that would match him perfectly! I think the long pectorals looked beautiful on the veiltail. Suited the long, flowy finnage perfectly. I'm so interested to see the outcome. Keep us posted Stefan.
