Wink 2013 breeding plan!

So I found out people in my area are really wanting better quality bettas I have a good number on a list already and I don't even have pairs!!


Currently, I am starting it out with supplying information and playing with ideas :p
And will create a website (even found one for a good price).

Lots of work, yes, but for me it is fun to be creative =D

What do the "buyers" want?

- bright colors
- healthy active fish
- halfmoon
- delta
- super delta
-crowntail
- doubletail
- dumbos
- yellow
- melano
- platinum
- dragonscale
- bi/tri colored
- prettier females

What they DON'T want:
- dull colors
- sick bettas
- veiltail
- pet store bettas
- dark blue (more uncommon for desire)

I can work with that :)

I also found it is easier to give proper advice this way... More and more are ASKING about breeding, keeping and maintaining.

I will start with halfmoons or crowntails, and if I find doubeltail... There are many people interested in this unseen tailtype! We lack them here.

I will also have some fun!! Raffles! Everyone has gotta love them lol. Three per spawn (I am thinking of 25 or more babies) are free (s/h costs still apply).

Shipping: Late Spring to early Fall. :)
Refundable? Shipping fees are not, fish fees are.
Bonus: if the person allows I can give some freeby/ies.
Art: why not add another fun thing: drawings! Also available as laminated and framed (no frames availavble for shipping as it costs more for the buyer!) and three sizes.

Um... I have it all typed up unfortunately I lack internet and I am using my phone (so any odd things I am sorry lol!!)

I am going to find 1-2 pairs on Sunday :) Looking for a crowntail male, might get a second ct gal as I have Candy already. And I would like a Halfmoon pair as well... Edmonton is where it is at lol. (doubletails I may need to ship from ontario :( )

What did you mean when you mentioned this?
  • dark blue (more uncommon for desire)
Not sure why you'll be able to find the time to get all that done & lose your sanity with work/school/etc.....

I wish you luck & many pretty healthy babies.

I live in the middle of nowhere. When I am not working (I am not in school) I have half of my time for nothing. Boredom. Dead boredom. No cable, no friends, nothing. :/ I think I will do just fine lol. :) all I have to do now is get my microworms >< roomie moved my mail somewhere in the house and the ones I got in sat there for 2-3 weeks. D:

For the dark blue... The royal blue or whatever it is. Because it is so common in pet store bettas, people got sick of it. It is like a phase... Soon red won't be wanted since 90% are reds. Red and blue are most common (even though I love them lol).

Lol!! Thanks Olympia haha. I wish I could find a male like Candy xD I really should have gotten the dark blue female who had awesome finnage... But... But Candy's colorful ;( lol! :) Cannot wait for Sunday.

My CT Ricky did not survive the move, so I only have male pets right now. Georgie, Tigger and baby betta. :/ Altair my PK is pretty vicious and does not make nests or "flirt"..

Sorry for th delayed response. My phone is being stupid. -.-

Anyways... The one in my avatar was Richie... Who was my import and he passed away. His immune system was all over the place! It sucked :(

As for veiltails... They are so mass produced there is no true solid line anymore. Inbred crossbred badly bred... They are so common you risk trying to compete against the stores selling them. No one wants a common anymore - the genetics are wonky. All bettas can have a variety of colors. Although I do find veiltail you can have rounded, spade, large or small... Wide or thin... Fins. Kinda neat!!
