Delaval was already an accomplished Guppy breeder, and several years before had decided to try his hand at bettas. He started with pet store fare, working the quality up to spec by selectively breeding the finest fish from his spawning attempts in a very particular pattern: brother to sister, and then father to daughter, for several generations. A peculiar feature of Delaval's line was that many of them had a white edge to their fins, a trait still seen in many Halfmoon bettas today. As the quality of Delaval's bettas increased, he began to realize he was on to something special, and worked even harder to perfect his 'ideal'. Working with only four tanks and about twenty jars, Delaval bred hard and culled hard, keeping only the very best to continue the line.

half Moon Betta fish...never heard of half-moon.....awesome and beautiful...just want to say now I have a halfmoon betta and it's beautiful!! 9/3/2015..just found out he died while I was in hospital 9/9/16 ..SAD Although this betta is resting his finnage, he is a halfmoon. The halfmoon betta's tail is rounded and looks distinctly like a halfmoon when the fish flares. Half-moon Betta male fighting fish preparing "bubble nest" for babies and CHARGES CAMERMAN!

When a male betta is not stressed they often prepare their home with bubbles in case they run into a female perhaps.

Breeding: After they bettas engage in the "naptual embrace", aka spawning, the male retrieves the released fertilized eggs and places them into the bubbles. If the bubble pops, the male retrieves the egg and places it back into a bubble. Breeders often places bettas in shallow water to give the bettas a bit of a break. My aquarium would be too tall and he'd be "winded" Here's a better example of a halfmoon betta, although this fish is not quite fully flared. Still, you can see how this type of finnage is quite different from the veiltail. My blue OHM male betta mating with a steel blue halfmoon female. I could have prepared way better than this but the female's eggs were too mature that some started to slip out uncontrollably so this mating was quite urgent. I've had the couple meeting each other every day for a short period for a few days by the time I decided to breed them so the female had no problem at all accepting the male. Both fishies were inexperienced but my boy did a good job carrying out the embrace :). The female was not helping picking the eggs at all, she's been eating them all the time. My male couldn't figure out the difference between unfertilized eggs and fertilized ones so he picked up all he could. 20-ish eggs ended up surviving from the female and I'm not even sure how many were fertilized. I just hope this beautiful couple could have some babies hatched :) I will update if things go well.While a bit rarer at your local pet store, halfmoon bettas are a very popular tail type as well, especially among betta breeders. If you want to find one from a responsible breeder you should probably easily be able to do so online! Halfmoons are named after their long, flowy and (obviously!) halfmoon shaped caudal (tail) fin, which has an angle of 180° when the fish is flaring. Some breeders also breed bettas with a tail that spreads over 180°, which they call over halfmoon bettas.
