Are my bettas all that I think that they are?

Hey, guys. I was just curious to see if my bettas are show or breeding quality. I'll take any comments on them that you have!

Sorry for the bad quality...Fireheart doesn't exactly love the camera!

I finally got a pic that does Fireheart's colors true justice, or at least as close as you can get with a camera!

I know that the pic is turned...but because of the angle of his body that I took the pic at, you can still see him.

The green crowntail in the second pic is actually the one in my avatar. I have no idea why some pics of him are green and some are blue...

Hello,

Both seem to have messy rays but then again I can't be certain since they aren't flaring. But I wouldn't breed them. If you want to get into breeding, contact an American breeder or buy off aquabid.

Also, though they're not breeding quality, they are still lovely bettas.

Thanks. I've tried to get a good pic of them flaring, but they won't cooperate.

For shows, you can not BUY a fish from a pet store. You have to breed it, or have written and signed permission from the breeder. Also, I would try to get a better quality betta, such as a HMPK, PK, or HM for breeding.

If you want nice quality breeding fish from a petstore, talk to your Petco and ask where they get there fish. Most get them from Thailand so you can buy from there. Though I still recommend buying from a breeder.

Also, since HM, HMPK and PKs are over bred (Meaning lots of people breed them) try finding nicely rayed CT's. I purchased 4 bettas from WALMART.. That had really nice rays. I suggest carefully looking through Petco CT's if that is what you want to stick with. Look on AB to see Thailand CT's.

I'm not stuck on CTs, but they are my favorite. I was lucky to find some decent ones a petsmart in a very limited stock.
