Interesting :)

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

So for anyone who was waiting on more info: I got to meet the breeder in person yesterday, and he's a wonderful guy. :) It's always a little strange meeting people who you've only ever talked to via email and know very little about, but luckily he was really great-- he's just a bit older than me (ie. just going into college), and he's been breeding for four years now. He showed me my girls and then showed me around his breeding room while he was getting them ready for travel, which was a lot of fun. (BABY FISH. Okay, as someone who's never actually seen a baby betta in person, much less HUNDREDS OF THEM, it was neat.)

Currently he's got two spawns that are still very very little-- one is under a month, and the other was just hatched last week. I don't know their colours, but they're both plakat spawns-- as they grow out he's going to keep me updated, and I'll in turn keep you all updated. The number of people who confirm they'd like to adopt will probably determine the number of culls he saves for me (and obviously I'm considering one or two of my own, buuut :)).

And for anyone who's interested in actually buying non-cull fish: he also introduced me to the parents of his next spawn, two absolutely STUNNING super-blue plakats. Seriously, these fish were amazing. (I might've actually drooled a bit). He won't be spawning them for a little while, but oh my god, believe me, if the parents are any indication he's going to be selling off some lookers.

We're in southern Ontario! (He's in Mississauga, I'm in Burlington.) Just, you know, a little while away from Alberta. :)

Once he gives me the culls I'll be handling shipping though, as I really doubt there'll be many people who are local and interested in adopting. I know shipping prices can get rather steep, though, so I'm trying to figure something out for that-- I might be willing to cover part of the cost if it's absolutely ridiculous.

All three of us are in ontario.

He is a very nice guy, I've been chatting with him today through email. One of his spawn is plakat fighters, not sure what the younger one is. I am hopefully getting some females for my sorority from him. Very reasonable prices!
