Can show quality bettas be purchased just to have as a pet?

Recently I have been having a lot more brain farts then normal. I feel it might be because of lack of sleep.

With finding out the information I have, I have chosen to repair the unhealthy male betta I have now. (No I did not hurt him like this a lovely pet store did) and go from there. I want to just work on repairing him before I put him through all this work for nothing.

I'm sure they can, but you'd be spending a chunk of cash on a stunning betta you aren't going to do anything with.

He's doing a lot better. You should check out his Journal "My Prince" and really see the updated pictures I have found for him.

I did some more research and I'm looking for a Black (melano) Male... I found some from finland but I'd have to ship it to a lady out west and then be able to pick the betta up. And that is why to much. I'm having such a hard time finding a breeder that will send it directly to me.

Look for chard56 bettas and when you hit 100 post you should buy a pair from him. He has a beautiful stable purple line. That meaning the purple stays all their life and does not go away like others and Chard56 ships in the USA directly to you.
