i have. many times. i bought from Chard56 on here many times(i had 5 total from him), and adopted a pair from another user. :B it's a bit stressful on us, the owners, but so far the ones i got were pretty okay with being shipped.

as for finding breeders, there's a few on here(check the classifieds section), or you could check out Aquabid.com

Aquabid is where I get my fish. Lately I've been taking fish from facebook friends (on my betta groups) and I ended up with a lot of nice fish.

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.

Contact a breeder or www.aquabid.com but remember melanos are difficult to breed so don't expect one to be cheap and be prepared for high import and shipping costs.

That's what I was afraid of...I guess I might just have to put that dream on hold. :(

Actually I just set up some royal blues so they may produce melanos.
