Hiya~! I just discovered this sight....today! When I was younger I had a betta, but I only knew the basics in order to keep it alive. Now that I'm older I've recently began to look at them differently. Especially after my roommate bought her daughter this GORGEOUS aquamarine/silver male.
And then I wanted to breed him after I did some more research after realizing the many different colors there were!
We named him Pearl, and we got another male named Bug but we're having a few issues with him but now that he's eating he's fine. (He's a picky eater!!) I can't find any female bettas where I live. I live near the Arlington Highlands, too!!! I've checked all 4 wal-marts, Petsmart, and Petco but still no females. There aren't even local breeders from what I can tell. I might just have to order a few, soon but I don't want to stress the fishies!
One day I hope to be able to breed a betta with sort of an orange/black coloring. And I LOVE half-moon tails so it HAS to be that and the colors! But I am not going to start ANYTHING unless I've done some studying. I would hate to have any small baby fish suffer due to my own idiocy!
So for now I'm reading everything I can about breeding, but I've also come a few questions myself like : Not counting conditioning time, how long should you wait before breeding a pair again?
P.S - I'll have to get a picture of Pearl. He's so beautiful I could give him a kiss!
