I found two halfmoon breeders, one close by, one further away... I also know an HMPK breeder.

I wonder if Global Pet Foods would let me showcase a 5 gallon tank with a betta? Though they have limited supplies for bettas, I can still show off a betta, and proper care, plus brochures.

ROUGH VERSION:

Inside
Outside

The quality of the pictures suck because I used iphone, taking a picture of the brochure design from the computer.

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

I think that question would be hard to answer since Sena is just in the planning stages right now.

Answer to the livestock question: I do not know yet. Mainly, some of the species I can easily breed myself. IF I stick to ONLY online (with appointment of people coming in to visually see) then it will probably only be bettas and livebearers with a few egg layers. Which I will breed myself, the stock coming from reputable breeders within Canada (preferably Alberta, but cannot always get what you want), and from the city in any fish store I find worthy of my "stock building" plans

As for supplies, no idea yet.

Choclate, the koi female was the one that died from columnaris, when I got her :/

I have always been curous about the Betta in your Avatar Sena. So no ADFs and Fiddlers? I would get a small place to breed your stock. Like a small Warehouse.

Yeah she was from Aquarium Central (bunch of pricks). From a tank that had a dying betta they claimed was beaten up - who really had columnaris, and the others would die, as did my poor koi who cost a whole 14.00 for being mislabelled as a dragonscale halfmoon plakat.

Is she still alive? Was she worth the money?

Nope. Caught it too late. She got dropsy, even after I used meds to try and save her. Wasn't worth the money, or her suffering. Hence why I get my stock only in particular areas, and breeders. Can't afford to not be picky!!

Also another reason to bring HEALTHY fish to Canada. I care for the fish, and the customer.
