I took some badly needed update photos of my CTPKs plus a few of my pet bettas. I need to figure out who to spawn ASAP. What a terrible decision to make!
Unfortunately out of this spawn, I only got tons of males! No females :( I do have their mother, and she is still small enough (and vital enough) to probably spawn with one of her sons. On the other hand, it might be time to combine the form and color CTPKs. I know I will lose primary branching at least in the first couple generations, but I have some females with great color (see below).
Very few survived from this lot, but I did get two very nice females that I am thinking of crossing with one of the males above (to combine the two lines). I dislike the secondary branching and will probably lose it in the first or second generations after the cross, but I think it is time. Their color is just fantastic!
