With that said I'm still learning and I'm glad there's many knowledgeable people on here and the IBC sites. If I was breeding white hmpk's I'd be snatching up this girl

My white female is almost as perfect as that one. Her brother is nice too (not such of a wonky anal fin).

I have to agree also because most of them of some wonky fins or some super long anal fins. I know HMs are harder to breed because they don't get a whole lot of truly genuine 180s. I guess finding a good pair will take a while.

I saw a halfmoon marble plakat earlier, he was gorgeous! I want a really nice marble plakat from the states, any one have some that are almost ready to sell?
HMPKs are easy but require you to watch the anal fins because they can get way too long.

@ kfryman- Try contacting Karen Mac Auley, martinismommy on here. She had that awesome pair of orange marble HMPK's. She may have some boys left over. This is one of the boys I got from that spawn...

@Pitgirl: I'm sad but you win some and you lose some and I'm talking with him right now about setting everything up and possibly ordering more fish so who knows, maybe the buyer will defunct and not pay and he and I will still be in communication so I'll end up getting her. Postive thoughts.

@MrVampire181 Oh, I told Chaba in my first email I found him via some bettapeople Iknow and he asked who. Is there a name or user name he knows you by so I can tell him it was you who sent me to him?

Isn't she the president of IBC as well lol? I am not gonna be breeding yet so I don't have to worry about that. I will contact her once I feel I can breed. I have seen a multi pair she was selling on Aquabid once, they were amazing and had so many bids on them.

Not president (that's Joe Becerra) but she might be the president of a certain club. I have two of her males coming on next week and a female I bred last year has her multi genetics as well. Great starter fish :)

Just to clear this up.....I am the current Vice President of the IBC :o) And I hope my fish are a little better than great starter fish :o) MrVampire, if you are serious about educating this forum on the IBC it is a good thing to know who the President and Vice President of the International Betta Congress are....
