line originated from a show winning blue/white BF male which Bonnie
McKinley bred. She gave me one of the nice offspring (pictured left)
and I went to work :). The results? Generations upon generations of
beautiful blue bettas many of which displaying a great blue/white BF
pattern. A few outcrosses have produced a DT version, then soon
after a green/white offshoot (green moons). Lately I have been
focusing on improving finnage. Now in 2003, I have produced the
first Blue Moon Halfmoons. In this first generation, most males came
out solid colored, all carrying the BF gene. The spawn produced 30%
true halfmoons, gorgeous fish with no impurities. I cannot contain
my excitement and cannot wait to see the next generation which
should yield BFs.
Blue moon males remain one of the most striking
bettas. Females are solid colored. I have been blessed with very
little red impurities, so this is a pretty darn clean strain. This
strain is one of Bettatalk's old time favorites and Blue Moons sell
fast. Prices will vary upon BF pattern, finnage and color.
Sturdy and fairly easy to spawn, this strain is
suitable even for the beginner. Enjoy!
