The term "Pet Store" Bettas is reffering to some people and forums continuing to put down or not recommend breeding pet store bettas because of poor quality genes and not knowing how old they are, hence breeding a Betta that is older than a year which is supposed to be a bad thing. I think my scores in the IBC shows prove that pet store Bettas can be bred into show quality Bettas. I wouldn't recommend someone to just go out and do just that. It takes a lot more than just putting a male and female together and thinking you are going to show the offspring. It may take several generations of selective breeding to attain anything close to show quality. That's something I wanted to do and was several years in the making.

Well said! If you have a goal you can breed to show standard that is all just because its harder dosent mean its impossible.

Richard my love! I miss having some of your fishies in my care!! Have any ladies you feel like parting with? Or perhaps a boy or 2 that need to be spoiled rotten?

One hand reaches out and pulls a lost soul from harm. While a thousand more go unspoken for, they say what good have you done? By saving just this one... It's like whispering a prayer in the fury of a storm. And I hear them saying... You'll never change things...
