Why would you go for pet quality? I always go for the best quality possible.. I would never aim for just pet quality... >.<

Your boy is stuck in between
So I won't breed him to
Body n mouth is not my liking in the show class or traditional class
Fin n color don't fit either to

If you're in a bind for money. Check out

mnbettashop.com

Tony imports from an ibc judge, and if you don't have money for the show fish he sells study form and look at the other fish he sells. there are a few gems to be found.

I found my hmpk pair from the normal hmpk stock they cost $30 for the pair and shipping was $15 since I didn't want to pay for $30 again when I had already shelled out $30 for a HM female that day. And I asked him to ship on monday so they wouldn't get stuck in the post office over the weekend. They arrived today (shipped this monday) in GREAT color/shape

Here is a link to the pair pictures I just bought for a total of $45 shipping included.

http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=108664

They aren't perfect but clean fins and one of my favorite colors GREEN

bettysplendens.com

^^ That's a great site to study form of all tail types.

When you study form you can determine between pet shop fish and fish that people will line up to buy babies from. Even if you just want "pet quality" If you end up with a mess, no one will buy them. And unless you want to dump money with no hopes of return, you should just wait to breed a better quality pair.

He's cute though !

Oh and IMO I wouldn't breed him.

paypal is probably safest for both parties but yes they do accept other types of payment.

Or you could join the IBC and get in touch with a breeder who will be able to send you a good pair. I head some will send you fish free all you have to do is pay shipping.

Breeding for pet quality is like saying "I should get an A on this test but I'll just take the D". Its the same effort to raise bad bettas as it is to raise good ones.

I dont want to start and argument but I dont think you miss out on anything breeding pet store fish. Having bred both a lot I think that breeding a fish you love makes you love the babies and thats what important here, that the babies will be okay not that the fish is perfect.... However sense I havent heard whether or not they have a goal and without knowing the female its up to the owner. And mn bettashop is a wonderful store but not everyone has an option to buy fish and ship them.

And Mr. V define "bad betta" I here you say that a lot and I want to clarify what you mean

A bad betta is any betta that is randomly bred without knowledge of genetics.

If you have a goal in mind, and you find a decent HM male from PetCo or something, okay. But they should be paired with a good partner.

I bred one pet store fish this year. I was rewarded with some amazing fish. To the point that I have a black dragon male that one breeder wanted me to breed to my females. BUT he was bred to a female from an amazing line of HMPKs.
