Martinismommy, thank you for the input from the breeder's side. I agree with you that her fish are gorgeous. (Were any of them at the Santa Clara show?)

me too,
just saying hodiggity is a GREAT SHIPPER she gave me a LONG i mean long finned female, without a scratch!
but i just bought a HMPK hopefully she comes in fine

and yes BBs fish are absolutely gorgeous, i would kill for one (if i had to) lol. you gotta love her metallic's though, a beautiful 180 spread on females and yes not EVERY fish from breeder's will be ABSOLUTELY perfect, a few tears, a few little mis-haps. so what? a betta is a betta, we rescue betta fish from stores that have spine mess-ups or scale deformations many times. maybe a breeder had one ONCE that shouldn't be a prob.
besides BBs betta's are amazing even the slightest mess up

Same here - I received a long finned VT female and there wasn't a bite on her pretty purple/red fins <3

Well personally I would rather sell culls then kill them. Unless they were going to always be sick, in pain, dying, etc :) So I applaud any breeder who sells culls, who are not their best - I would keep my best to breed, the rest sold.

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.
