Bettas are raised in Asia in giant ponds, with little difficulty, and for large amounts. They are pond bred and raised and are often sold at nearly a year old in most cases. Usually the smaller bettas are the younger ones at 5-6 months old.
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.
