I think, if you want to know what NOT to breed, check out PetSmart's females- blahhh. I have to shop there because The Exalted One Himself, my cat, Jax, will only eat the $1.04 per can PetSmart food. These fish are his, to watch for his amusement. I'm just the slave.
I'm hoping more people will see the fun of having a sorority. If the PetcoSmarts of the country would set them up, people would see that you can have a tank full of pretty bettas! They are more entertaining than schooling fish- they chase, have personalities, and are always up to something.
4 bettas: Butch, 3-year-old violet male PK EE & 3 girls in a 30 gal sorority. I do not name the girls anymore! 1/2 of them die within a month.
30 gal: 9 Oto cats, 4 Ocellifer cats. Inverts: Cherry shrimp & 2 assasin snails.
10 gal.: Butch, his 5 oto cats, 3 assasin snails, and a few snails the assassins haven't caught.
