EDIT: Also +1 about the water. We sometimes forget that the water a fish lives in is, well, the water it lives in. Taking a fish from waters such as those in Thailand and plopping it into our waters would be like taking a man from Arizona and dumping him off in Sibera.
Oh yes, who could forget the lovely ladies?

As long as you prepare your water and acclimate properly, they should be just fine regardless of if you import or order locally.

Yes and no. Depending on the fish itself, husbandry, and the supplier. One of my imports passed away, but my other two are doing just fine (despite power outages). My bettas from the city live longer than the ones from the store in town.

Sounds good.

You could combine all the form pictures in the "form" article - with advice what to breed to to get so and so. The basic "perfect" form could be the ultimate goal on the top of the first page. Then if you have examples of certain forms you could post info on what to breed to to achieve ideal form.

Thus what to look for and breeding goals could all be in one thread.
