You want to breed petstore betta's with different tail types. Yes, you know everything about breeding. *Sarcasm*

No, that's not what I want.
What I want people to do is do it PROPERLY, where NONE end up dead. You can get well bred bettas with good form and you get to know their genetics for about $10, right in the betta classified section.

I guessed you had lack of knowledge on breeding when I see you want to breed pet store bettas of opposite tail types, and you seem satisfied that they will kill each other as long as they didn't cost much, and you just joined this month. I'm not hating on new members, I was a new member at one point, and some of my friends here are newbies. But there are plenty of new people coming here like you, breeding for the sake of breeding. Most of those fry are going to end up in cold bowls, with owners who lack care knowledge or just down right don't care about the betta's well being. If you breed quality you can sell them to owners and breeders providing quality care.

Edit: oh forgot to mention. Good breeders would know how to tell a betta's age and know that pet store bettas are considered too old to breed.

I have known people like this from my mouse forum and all I can say is they make me horibly sad in assuming animals are toys that can breed on their command. In the end the animals always suffer and many lives are lost. It's horribly sad and I feel bad for the animals who end up in their care because they are the only ones who suffer.

Yes if your serious about breeding Betta then you should also be serious enough to get your fish from aquabid or another breeder. The people here care and love fish and are worried what would happen if you breed a lot of fish that no one wants.

If you do breed them, I hope you don't have a job or aren't in college. The fry need around the clock care

And no I'm not a breeder, I haven't done extensive research on breeding. I've picked up some info from the responsible breeders here but I still need to learn more about genetics, form and supplies.
But I'm not going to breed anyways.
