Your also going to have to look into your state laws because I believe in order to receive fish in HI you have to have some sort of license....I'm not 100 percent sure on that though

baylee767,

Tell your parents that you're not doing drugs, stalking the elderly with a paint ball gun or trying to get pregnant (or get someone pregnant) as hobbies, and maybe they'll suddenly realize keeping fish is the least of their worries... and aren't they lucky to have a kiddo with a nice normal hobby... ;)

LOL. I'm a girl... I highly doubt that's even possible.

I might be able to get a pair that I know about (genetic history and such), not sure yet. I'll tell you if I can! I sure hope so!

I don't think I'll be breeding for a long, long time.

I think 1f2f said that you need a permit to ship fish in Hawaii. I did a quick search and thought you didn't... but I was wrong. Shipping is WAY too expensive and above the normal level and you need to buy a permit. I can't afford to ship in Bettas and can't get a pair. Now I just don't feel like breeding, at least not right now. I think I'll just put off this whole idea and focus on keeping Bettas as pets, not worth the disappointment. Besides, I don't make nearly enough money and there are enough Bettas out there right now that I'm not needed to add to the Betta population. I'll just rescue the poor Bettas out there in the petstores doomed without me. I know, I could get a pet store pair right now, but... I just suddenly don't want to anymore. I guess it's because I have to find that perfect pair in a place where I can get them to spark the interest again...

So sad! Apparently back in the day it was only $5 to get a permit! Also I've seen people request for the fish to be sent under the radar, but that's not smart or legal! >_< don't give up on breeding just yet! You said you were having trouble finding a local breeder... Maybe there are a lot of others like you on the island! You could be that breeder someday :) we'll always be here rooting you on!
