I agree with drama, don't breed unless you do LOTS of research.

http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=26844 is where you should start looking. Please do a lot of research before doing this. Like I always say: research till your brain hurts!!

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

LOL. Ya those are big fish. I've been keeping bettas for 7 years and breeding them for 1 year.

LOL! haha, none of us do.



And by lots of research, we mean research way more than you think you should. If you think you know enough, then you don't. There is always more to learn.

Aris - Pure white HM! 5 gallon.
~RIP~
Pheonix - Red VT with blue highlights. 5 gallon
Died of dropsy.

Future plans:
2 bettas to fill my divided 10 gallon

Filling my 35 gallon tank, going to be a sorority once i get money for decorations...and fishies...and plants...and meds, filter, heater, light...

I think sometimes we think we know enough, then when we actually get into the situation, we have even more questions and find that we didn't know as much as we thought.

Yea, I know what you mean. I know sooo much more since joining this forum. I was under the same impression as everyone else, that bettas are fine in small places and don't need much. I am so glad I found this site and did all my research before even getting mine. I was giving advice already before I got Pheonix lol. I still have questions sometimes lol.
