aww thanks :)

And BettaLover I added the "breeding pet store bettas" for you It's a way to deter pet store breeding perhaps, without...offending? I guess? o.o I hope xD

I know exactly what you mean. The "tone" or way that things are said on here are just rude and sometimes wrong. Yes that helps, but I was just explaining it from my perspective. It was just my opinion of why I think people buy petstore bettas to breed.

I was just giving input. Also I don't like how members here always have their "helpful advice" saying "No, you're wrong, what did you think was going to happen?"

These are just things this forum needs to work on. It's not impossible though so thats why some of us here are trying to help as much as possible.

Did that help Bettalover? :p
It's a nice way of warning Without being so harsh which especially when dealing with online, without spoken tone it can become harsh o.o

Exactly - warn, but don't rub it in "I told you so" doesn't need to be said.

IMO, is that is said, there are few things that the member being told their wrong will do. They will either reply back rude and do what they want, or leave the forum and not return (still doing what they want).

I agree with Sena that people start out with breeding petstore bettas then work their way towards breeding better quality fish. Some breeders breed petstore bettas to Aquabid bettas.

The term "AB bettas" really is kind of irrelevant because really I can buy bettas from the pet store and sell them on AB and say they were bred by me. Now that I have been familiarized with show quality bettas, when I look on AB, I don't see many good show quality bettas that are right for the price tag they have.

I just think as long as the breeder has a plan for the fish, it's okay. I also think that breeding pet store bettas shouldn't be something for a beginner to take on since they will be putting much more on themselves than they should be working with in the beginning. Of course this is their choice.

Also another reason I will be breeding decent to high quality fish... Because I am in canada. One person I talked to has 7 bettas and is happy there will be a local breeder :) i think if people feel they can be supplied closer to home (as shipping can be a pain and expensive here) they will feel more able to breed with thw bonus of less diseases or dead fry.

Well, maybe not Aquabid bettas but bettas from a breeder that are good quality.
