aqabid question and types in gerneral

this is a really dumn question to start but please bare with me, i saw a betta, i would kill for on the aquabid, though i dont get paid for a while. my question is, is there breeds of betta that look the same, or if the bettas have babies will the all look the same. or if i pass up a betta color is that it, never to see one like it. this betta i am talking about is the color of a betta i wanted, from the get-go and didn't even think the could be a pattern like that

When you breed bettas you get a combination of the parent's characteristics determined on the traits they each carry (basic genetics).
Some color combinations are more frequently found than others. If you are looking for something specific and rare and you find it, better take the chance because it will be a while until you find that again.
What fish are you looking at on AquaBid?
Most fish on AB don't sell, it's just how it is. So if you absolutely want it, contact the seller about an extension on your payment. I'm sure they'll accomodate you.

Buy him now and you'll have up to two weeks before he's even shipped. Ask what transhipper the seller sends to.

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.

Once every two weeks or so the Thai betta breeders combine orders and pack the fish into several large boxes and ship them to a licensed importer (transhipper i.e. Linda Olson, Jennifer Vivieros). Then the transhipper sorts the fish, recieves the payment, and ships them to you.

King bettas are a PetCo scam. I've never bought from that seller. Shipping from Thailand to the US is $5-$8 per fish and then it's $2 handling fee, $2 heat pack fee, $5 box fee, and $35 Express mail shipping or $15 Priority shipping.
