Bettas can look very nice and not be show quality.

I know. But the comment Basement Bettas comment was a bit rude to a new user. I am very aware of all the things about petstores.

Just wanted to say that IT IS COMPLETELY POSSIBLE to end up with show quality fish breeding from petstore fish!

Chard56 did it, and I'm sure he isnt the only one who started this way. I read that it took him 5 years, but he did it. He also won new breeder of the year last year, his first year, at the IBC shows. So please dont be discouraged. I dont think that you will get show fish out of your first few spawns, but eventually, if you keep breeding only the best that you have from spawns you can end up with show quality fish too!

Of course it would be cheaper and faster to buy from a reputable breeder. At the same time, some people want a challenge, some people want to know that their wins and fish came from their own hard work into making them what they are.

Must have been a slip in culling.

Basement Bettas is an experienced show-breeder and one of the best in the country, perhaps the world. She is merely direct and honest---not rude.

I would feel privileged to have her respond to a thread of mine.

When I first signed on to online forums, over fifteen years ago, I was offered this advice: It's the internet.

Yes, she's very honest when she gives her opinion and to some people she may seem rude if they don't know her but she would never be I tentionally rude to anyone.

Ok guys. That got me a bit ticked. Especially cause she is a personal friend of mine, and just was so excited.

Crowntaillove, I apologize if you were offended in any way. If you encounter any problems here on the forum, please don't hesitate to contact a mod. Welcome to our forum. You have beautiful, beautiful fish. Ultimately, it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks of their quality or form. If you love them, that's all that matters.

I am not offended in any way. I know that basementbettas is an experienced breeder, and he/she was just voicing his/her opinion. It is possible for me to end up with a show quality fish by breeding. And I am just happy to have fish as awesome as they are. For 6.78 at petsmart, I'm very satisfied with them! No hard feelings.
