For me, my bettas are everything. The one thng I would not give up were my bettas, when I was forced to move. My boyfriend has begun to appreciate and enjoy them as much as I do - knowing they have almost an unlimited amount of colors, and have a diverse amount of finnage, different sizes, attitudes etc.
By far, the best fish I have ever had.
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.
