Okay I'm pretty new here on this forum but I really like it so far. I want to get a pair of big ears to breed (and sell at a more reasonable price). Is the gene for this fin type dominant or recessive. I wish to get these two fish: http://www.aquabid.c...ashm

And perhaps this male for coloring purposes since they all have EXCELLENT confirmation.

Do you think te colors on the other two are enough or should I get another salamander for more range in color? But would I even get big ear betta's out of a regular "eared" betta and a big ear female?

Yes I know they're expensive but I want them really bad and I have the money to spend (been saving up for a salt water tank I no longer feel I have to time to do since I've started breeding fish.

I saw someone selling a group of juvie big ears a while ago.

Would love to cross one to a giant halfmoon and work on a line of giant HM big eared dragons. ><

I don't know anything about the "big ear" genetics though. I would assume if you id enough back breeding or sibling to sibling after out crossing to a non-big ear you'd get some.

But longfin is normally dominate(like in tails) so it might be dominant aswell, or partial?

I guess. But I don't know. If it was dominant there would be more of them...

Like Bambi said, someone posted up an auction for a group of them a while back; the photos were of a whole spawn of such individuals, so it's obviously highly heritable. I haven't heard whether it's dominant or recessive, but even if it is recessive, it would only take 2 generations to start seeing it in the offspring.
