Another thing... I won't deal with rude people. Remember the halfmoons I found? I wanted to see what selection they had basically, and really did want them. But I do not trust the weather (has nothing to do with the sender) and they acted all high and mighty, and quite rudely. Sorry I wanted to see what breeders have to offer and want a 50/50 chance of survival rather than 10/90.

I know people close by anyways that are breeding, and can ship. so it's fine! ^_^ I'd pay a higher price for FRIENDLINESS.

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

Nope. But that is fine! I can keep looking :) It is also terrible I am unable to go to the city today or tomorrow. Which puts my plans very, VERY far back and I am very much disliking it right now.

Not much to tell about. She and the others were in a very barren tank, one of the females was terribly injured and had dropsy. Guy fed that fish to another. Too bad he did not know she had columnaris... Since I got the one in my avatar, she was always hiding, and since she was very light in color I did not notice columnaris until it was too late. If that store was a lot better, professional, friendly and customer oriented I would not have minded going back for new fish since their selection of bettas is amazing.. Even if they are all labelled "dragonscale halfmoon" She was a koi plakat. I had intentions of breeding her if she was healthy enough, but that never happened!!

No. She passed away. Not even into two weeks of me having her.

I don't really favor my bettas over each other. Each one is to his or her own.

Janey has her huge tummy.

Phantom Menace likes to peek out of his sunken ship ornament, and makes bubble nests 2-3 inches high.

Ares always greets me, swimming back and forth excitedly.

Lovelace is rather shy, but does peer at you from behind his fabric plants.

Peaches is a fiery little bugger, who eats a lot.

Double O' Splenden likes to show off, and thinks he should be fed more (not a chance)

Mickey is temperamental, and finally stopped biting his lovely fins.

Charlie stopped biting his fins once he was in a 1 gallon tank... And has calmed down a lot more too.

I can't favor them. For tailtypes though.... I do not really like halfmoons. They may be in demand, but they suck. The fins are too heavy... the fish don't like it. I want to bring the length down a lot more in an HMPK x HM line...
