The colors are stunning! I am hoping to have a solid white one day. I have four Bettas right now, three I've had for over a year and my newest one I've had about a month, a blue DT half moon.

Edit: I should've have read the first post more closely. The Black Orchid HM is also a favorite....Yes, I officially want one :)

they haven't spent weeks or sometimes months in a few tablespoons of water being shaken and prodded by bratty children in a garishly-lit pet store, and therefore have a bigger chance of living longer and happier lives :)

Thank you for letting me know that! I can definitely see where it is a better option. I would love to buy a fish from you soon--if you'd be willing to sell me one, that is. Entirely up to you, as the breeder, though. :)

Yea that is true :/ I do try to rescue fish when I can but sometimes it is not possible. These fish overall seem as though they would have a better quality of life. Thank you!

Thank you, I've looked at both already! The black orchids have especially caught my eye (on this thread). I'm not an expert on fish, but those do seem to be highly sought after on Aquabid, unfortunately for me. I'll keep my eyes open though. I just set up a NPT 10 gallon, so I'll be looking for a few weeks. I'm kind of moving slow since I just lost my three year old boy to a very sudden case of Dropsy. :/

Don't worry with all these new black fish we are buying in 3 months we will have an over abundance of black fish.
