-gasp- pretty!!!! lol. I am sure my Madame would too take offense. A pitch black with metallic green/blue (depends on her mood o_O)

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.

I know right? xDD Or just like "male bettas only come in solid colors".... Crayola would be offended. As would Shiloh, Spartan, Maine, Voldemort, Ghengis, Nemphis, Reggie,.... oh hey, all my males xD Even new addition, yellow El Dorado!

Eventually someone comes by and will step on that dirt and their footprint will help condensation form until there is a small footprint shaped puddle. The egg will then hatch and the betta is born into a tiny puddle where it benefits from the ammonia and bacteria gathered from the footprint depending on what the person stepped on before. The more bacteria the person gathered on their foot, the brighter colored and healthier the betta. If a person takes them out of the footprint sized puddle and puts them into a larger puddle they will die from not getting enough bacteria to survive"

I'm not even kidding. That was their excuse for dirty bowls. I heard this at three petstores, at my school, and at my friend's house. Who is telling this story to everyone??!

I never heard that one before. Wow!!

When my friend heard I was dividing my twenty gal for my bettas, she was like "Those are gonna be some huge bettas!" I asked what she was talking about and she was absolutely convinced they were going to grow to the size of their tank. Then, when I told her they wouldn't get much bigger than they already were, she just said "No reason to get upset, Erin, just because you're wrong." >.>
