Getting Back Into Breeding....

Recommended Posts

Yeah. I've decided to breed once again(this summer at the soonest).

This time I'll be setting up different types of ponds out in the side yard. Last year I just used kiddie pools but this time I think I will get 5 or so round ones and one 30+ gallon grow out pond. I intend to start with just purple coppers and if all starts going well for a few months I will purchase some koi breeders. However, which type would you like to see me work with? Crowntail or halfmoon?

Halfmoon!

You will need much bigger tanks for koi (and NETS!)

Wrong koi.

Koi bettas are red and white marble.Very hard to get a hold of.

plakat kois

Those will be gorgeous! It's been a long time since I've bred plakats, they're a very under represented betta type to the general public. Go for it!

Hmm, I haven't forgotten about this, but I haven't come across good stock yet and no breeders I've talked to are planning on koi bettas. I'm hoping to breed this summer and autumn, but I was also hoping on doing a few more monitor rescues, which eat up my money and the room where the spawning pools would go.

I've come across lots of purple coppers but too many of them carry red on the body and ventral fin. I'm sure I'll fine some nice ones though, just got to do more searching.
