Just a side note...you mentioned that you are planning on creating a sorority of three...you will need to do more than three females (5+) in order to have the best chance at a successful sorority.

It's a lot of money; I wouldn't pay so much for a fish personally, but all of my fish are strictly pets. If you want to breed, I definitely see how it's worth it to spend the extra money on a quality fish.

Yes, you make good points. I am by no means a professional, but I do want to breed bettas this spring/summer and see how I like it. I would prefer to do that with good quality bettas. I just think she is SO CUTE! And the male is like freaking beautiful.

As per the sorority, we shall see. I have a 10 gallon that I would have to remove some inhabitants from into my other tanks in order to house a few girls without overstocking. I say 3 because I like to keep my tanks lightly stocked and not overkill... there will be a BN pleco in there and a dwarf gourami, which I may need to separate if he doesnt get along with the girls. I have 3 danios in there now that I would move in with one of my boy bettas. So, I guess long story short I could do 5 but... we'll see.

And to everyone: I am still in the air abt her (and the boy I prob won't do cause I really dont want more than 3 tanks and I don't feel like dividing my tanks ATM) after I just read that she may not even ship from thailand until MAY 9TH!!!!! Goodness, that is a long time to wait!

I say if you feel a connection to her not only for her looks but like she has to come home then bring her home. The boy is gorgeous but so is the girl.

Well, I just think she is adorable and I can picture her in my tank and how cute she will look... :D Does that count? lol The boy I just think is awesome looking and I think the 2 might make cute babies together, but I have 2 boys already, and if I get her and pay $65ish I think I need to cut myself off. LOL... Maybe I can consider her an early 30th bday present? :D Bday is in May. :P

the pic you posted kind of makes it looks like she's saying, "yes? is there a reason you needed to bother me while I was putting on my makeup?" hehe

I say it counts. If you want her then splurge and get her. The boy...Well I think they'd make beautiful fry together but all in all it's your choice.

A thing to consider.
She could (looks like she could) have marble in her genes if u buy her be prepared for her colour to change. She may look like that now but the stress of the shipping could make her colour change. example:
My SD spawn babies Ced went from a black and purple metallic butterfly was attacked and turned to a metallic greeny/silver

Rayne started white with clear fins to gold with metallic purply/gold fins.

Female Bettas:Gaia,Bubbles,Tabitha, Rani, Kelsey, 4 unnamed Male Bettas:Oscar, Spyro, Cookie Monster, Kermit The Frog, Grover II, Alvin, Archillies, Moostash
Snails: Yoshi,Peach,Lugi,Mario
Others:Quismodo, Esmerelda, Lavern, Banch(<Guppies) 2 unnamed bristle noses, 2 unnamed reticulate "yoyo" loaches
Furbabies: Kobi & Beau
