Can't see anything in the pic. And this is the show section. He will be evaluated against a pretty hard standard here. If you want to breed and will make sure you do your best to rehome.. possibly a few hundred fish.. then breed. If you are thinking of breeding a Vt to send to shows his color needs to be close to perfection as that is something he will be judged on. Raising a spawn of bettas is a lot of fun, but also a lot of work. Don't bring lots of lives into being without committing to a lot of water changes and then finding a lot of homes.

I see a lot of red and blue, right away for me at least this is the stop sign, there are better forms of veils out there even at petsmart and they are solid colors.

I think the name thing gets a bit carried away....if they lived longer than a couple years yeah I could see it.

So far so great! He, Frost, Nikki, and Shadow have been her for a little over a month! I cant think of any names for him, however.

I hopt this is his very temporary home or just for pictures as vases are some the worst containers you can put a betta in. They need lots of surface area to breathe which a vase does not provide. If this is not more than a day or two or for the picture please go read the betta care section sticky on a proper container. Now I use gallon critter carriers (which have a enough surface area) for quarantine purposes but the water gets changed every two days. After 30 days the fish will have proper tanks. They are only $5.99 that with water changes would be alternative if a bigger tank is challenge.
