Need help in finding a pair of royal blues

Postby MeredithLee » Tue Sep 03, 2013 2:08 am

My goal is to start an healthy pair of royal blues or steel blues. No mix colors just solid please. IBC qualified bettas. If you know a person please let me know how to contact.

Thanks,
Meredith T. Lee

The best colored royals come from turq X steel matings.... That would be my suggestion.

Yes, you only need a good steel and turq line to get good colored blues.
This way blue to blue matings are not needed.

Thank you everyone so much for your advice. I just adopted a steel blue halfmoon female. She is in her isolation tank at the moment. This will be my first attempt in breeding a steel blue female with my turquoise male. I'll keep you update on the fries.
Words of thanks isn't enough to express that is in my heart.

worst news ever. My spawn all died today from ick. First time I ever come across this problem. The tank will be thrown away and equipment will be heated and sterilized for the next few days before I try to breed again most of all recover my emotional state first. :(
