Hey everyone! One of my best friends introduced my to this forum (yes, I'm looking at you, Dezerngirl), so I figured it would be a good idea to introduce myself.
My name is Kristen. I am [completely insane.. uh- I mean..] in love with bettas (and most other animals). I have 2 dogs, Tayoh [doberman] and Neomah [doberman/ golden retriever], and 8 fish- 5 bettas and 3 guppies.
My boys are Dugan ('dragonscale' wildtype coloring- though more blue), and Ilo (white and blue marble veiltail). The girls are Mora (black orchid crowntail), Rowan (black and red crowntail), and Clarity (cellophane veiltail).
I just ordered (it feels wrong saying that) 4 more bettas from Texas. 2 salamander hmpks males, and 2 superblack hmpk females. The two salamanders I'm getting are more purple-looking, though technically I suppose they would be blue with the red-wash.. I'm not really sure. I'm planning on getting some salamander females and super black males in the near future, too..
I'm just starting to get into breeding bettas. They are my passion and long-time hobby. My goal is to create something amazing! (Not really sure what, but I figure I have plenty of time to figure it out!) The bettas that I'm bringing home are a big change than what you can find around here. I work at PetSmart, and compared to their fish, these guys are like BAM- instant-drool... or maybe that's just me.
Anywho, I look forward to hearing from all of you and learning everything I can on the forum. (:
