My main goal is to improve the line I am currently working on. My dream would be for every single betta from a spawn to be without flaws, but perhaps that is impossible. Every betta has flaws, and so do I.l My idea of perfect male halfmoon betta would be able to hold his finnage to a full 180 degree caudal spread his entire life, has a balanced body with no bumps on the topline, is resistant to fin rot, has a dorsal that is symmetrical with the anal fin, a long body, and long full ventral fins.

Both are very rewarding and FUN! I have been breeding a line of Petsmart Crowntails for the past 3 years now and I have perfected the 180 spread and a few constant colors and butterfly patterns.
I am now working on building up my Betta Rescue Program.. with the help of my friends and family...I have had 17 Bettas "turned over" to me so far..and have rehomed 11. And I have personally rescued 13 Bettas from different stores.. and they are now living a happy and healthy life with me.. :] I have made a complaint calls to every store I have purchased Bettas from and have even sent letters to the Administrators.. Now.. I know this wont help the treatment of Bettas around the US and let alone Kentucky(where im from) but I am letting myself be known in my complaints and hopefully they will improve things.
note: get your family involved with your hobby. you need them more than ever if you are looking to make a difference.

I posted my goal's already, But here is an update to show everyone how the fry are coming along... Watch this video, I didnt get to keep up on water changes. So they should be a little bigger but its still a great vid.

Here it is 20 gal long live planted with a bushy nose pleco and IBC Blue Marble HalfMoon With some Dragon. Mom and Dad came from Aquastar71 and was from his sky line spawn...
