It depend on the weather where u live
Back when I was into Bloodline
I use a pond as a grow out tank
But breed them in a clover tank
Leave them inside of the tank for 4 week then dump them into the pond
Keep them there for 5 1/2 month n scoop them out when they are ready
Pond is full with floating plant
Plus infest with daphnia n mosquito larvae

This is my pond. It is not too cold in Seattle but it still cost about $30 extra a month if I want to heat it. Seattle is not too cold but not too warm either. This year we only have 3 days in the 80F. The rest is below 79F. At night it is still below 60F so you have to keep heat on 24/7.



Below is my new pond (7 day old)

Have you tried buying from Precha? Imo they're better quality than crazy dog's. I am currently breeding a precha pair to my personal line as well!

Also where were you from in vietnam?

2. King (petco) male + plaket 5* female Crazy Dog Betta
3. 5* plaket Crazy Dog Betta male and female
4. Silver red copper dragon + blue/red plaket from Junglist

I also ordered Indian Almond Leaf from Amy Lim, bbs eggs, and decap bbs from ebay. I think I am ready to go in 10 days.

I will introduce a second and third pairs this Sunday.
Anytime Tan! Hope everything turns out good.

Hi VictorP,

I was born in Thu Duc, Vietnam. It is now district 9. I do not like to buy from overseas. If you done with precha pair and want to sell let me know or let me know when you fries are about 5 weeks. But wait you are from Canada right? I guess shipping from Canada to the U.S. go through the same regulation and inspection

I brought from Crazy Dog Betta because I consider him as local (So. Cali) and Seattle.

My uncle was a professional betta fighter and breeder in the same district. Before 1975 he took his fish to Singapore and Thailand to fight. I love his fish. But fighting betta is not for me.

I only like plaket or HMPK. Full HM is too long fin for me. HMPK is beautiful.

Tan

Thu Thiem is district 2 right? There was a fairy that you go across from Saigon center to Thu Thiem/Thu Duc if I remember correctly. Or is that Nha Be Thu Thiem? I do not remember much. I left 32 years ago and I only visited once in 1996. Things are too much different now from what others told me.

Thank you Victor. Hope to see you in Seattle some day soon.
