Looking for Breeding Bettas

I don't mind if they're still young as long as I can see the patterns. Post here with pics or PM with pics. Provide any history of illness and what price you're asking.

The cheaper, the better, but I will pay more for high quality fish.


Looking for bettas to compliment their colors. My current breeding fish include...

Males:
1 plakat
1 crowntail

Females:
2 veiltails

Jewel vibrant.pngAurora.jpg


I had more, but unknowingly bought a sick fish and it spread, killing 4 other bettas. Now that the disease is officially gone, I'm looking to adopt (free basically, but I pay shipping) or buy.

Due to my financial state, if I want to be able to take care of these fish, I can't buy any fish over $10. Sorry guys.


Also, anyone who gives me bettas free (with me paying shipping of course) or with a discount (which I will check your other sales for), gets free or discounted bettas from my future fry. ;)

I've seen his aquabid before. I just wish shipping (for anything) wasn't so expensive. It's more than the fish!

It is very tempting, though. If I don't have any luck, I may just go for some of them. Do you know if aquabid ships cheaper grouped, or is that all up to the breeders? If I but from there, I'll only be able to get one fish right now.

There's two of the cheaper males I'd love to have, but my Paypal is empty and one of the bids closed. Do you know if he puts them back up if no one claims them? Neither were bid on yet.

I'll look into :) Thank you~

It's a bit of a risk since you don't know the color but you can order a HM female from Petco.com and shipping is free.

How much are they? If it's not too bad I may get one anyway. Do you know if they sell them in store or just online?

I looked into ordering from Petco online before and the cost of shipping a betta is $30. It's actually cheaper in a lot of cases to order from aquabid than from Petco.com

It's usually $12.99 for a halfmoon female. They're on sale right now but the females are out of stock. When I looked there's actually a $30 shipping charge. They are supposed to sell them in stores too but I've never seen anything other than VT or CT females. It all depends on your store though.

aww I was wrong sorry, I was told that by the petco manager and should of checked first.

If you go to your petco you can ask if they can special order a HM female for you and see how much it would be.
