True HM Females in US?

Where do you find true HM females in the US without importing? Every female I see from the US (including aquabid) seems to be delta or super delta. Even a lot of respectable US breeders seem to be selling mainly deltas as HM.

Has anyone had success finding true HMs with 180 degree spread from US sources?

Martinismommy and Basement Bettas always have good females.

I have gotten a few from both of them and they are wonderful!

Martinsmommy may have something in the next few weeks. It's true that if you know what a true HM female looks like you will not find them on AB often.
I stay away from imports as I don't trust the lines and they tend to get sick quickly (in my experience anyway).
good luck!

I would just keep checking back with Martinsmommy and Basementbettas. Eventually they'll have some available.

Matinismommy is pulling fish from growout tanks in the next couple of weeks.
I got an early pair because I had another pair being shipped to me.
These two are females I got from her...

Gilbert sells on AB? NOW I'm finding this out!? Lol.

Yes that spawn does look pretty nice. I'll probably be getting a pair from Karen as well.

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.

Do it Dom... they are looking really good!
I got a red bf pair as pets but i'm very tempted to breed once they are grown.

I need some long fins.... And I've seen her pics on Facebook and wow they look great. I'll probably ask her in a week if she has a pair for me.
