Several of these will never make it out of my fish room as they will be bred.

Yes. Top three are males. they come on real slow in this line and look like females for a long time. Bodies grow and get thick.. then the fins come. Second female from bottom would be bounced in a class for that thin white edge on her fins. Damn nice girl so too bad. Bottom female will be bred. Her dorsal could be broader.. but she is very nicely balanced. See the way her anal is same length as those tail rays? That is what I breed for. And all that branching in her tail.

Marble male could be showable if pattern holds though he could be more spotty to be really competitive.

Green male needs a longer length to his tail to be what I want for balance. But, he could still be competitive in a show if his proportions stay as is. Still.. he is green and I will probably breed him for a line of greens with a female to correct that balance.

Second fish is a male and very well balanced for my standards. He will stay that proportional as he grows, and with that clean color will be bred. To nice to show.

Yes they have very nice symmetry. I might try breed for show when I get experienced but for now I'm just breeding for fun. Hopefully I will be able to get there one day. I'm in calgary a alberta though and it's a shame there isn't any shows near by

No shows ever. There is the betta breeders Canada, but that's it. Ordering fish is extremely expensive and quite risky as well.

Yes shipping in our country is unpredictable. Bad postal services and bad weather.

Ok.. trying to understand. Can you get fish from Thailand and imported? Do you have the transshippers to receive them and resend them?

Then are there issues with just shipping the fish in Canada in general?

I met someone at a show in MI that was from up there.. so few clubs? Would knowing about other breeders up there be an aid to organizing some club?

What about any other fish clubs? Salt? Chichlid.. discus.. anything?
