Hello from Australia

Hi everyone, been lurking for a while and finally decided to join. My name is Kyla, I'm 24 from Perth in Australia. I currently have 12 male bettas and 5 females. I started with just a motley mongrel from the local aquarium but his larger than life personality and a bit of reading quickly turned it into a bit of a collection. My most notables (which aren't that notable :p) are my giant, 2 HM (lavender and red), SD white marble and marble HMPK. Doing a few tests with breeding at the moment. Certainly finicky but interesting.

Nice to join you all, look forward to the discussions and wealth of info.

It's too easy to collect them. My local aquarium know what I'm like and like to show me the interesting ones they've gotten in. That's how I ended up with the giant. I did draw the like at a $400 pair of mouth breeder bettas. haha

Hello and welcome to the forum

It didn't take long for the betta bug to get it's claws in you :)

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
