I think I am going to try my hand at breeding a few fish. I can't find the yummy deep yellow/orange HM female that I got from Thailand. I found a banana yellow male HM on ebay; I bought him (it's my b-day tomorrow, so I feel entitled). I have 2 2.5 dividable tanks and an extra 10-gal with a divider. If I cull heavily, I hope I can get a few females of this color, and maybe some males to sell. I'm not set up to handle 500 fry, so if I cull the eggs to about 20%, maybe I'll get 10-20 decent fish.
BTW, it's fine to ship in the cold; just make sure they are HELD AT THE PO for you to pick up! They can either freeze or fry on a mail truck that's out all day. Then the mail person leaves it outside! I think it would be more deadly to ship in hot weather; I've heard of bettas living in 55 degree water full time.

Awesome!!!
I am not too far from Derry. I live about 1 mile from Crane Beach. I grew up in the Annisquam section of Gloucester. From our North-facing deck, I could see all the way up the NH coast- I remember all the lights at night, wondering what towns they were from.
In addition to growing up on the beach (Lighthouse Beach), we had 2 ponds with bluegill, koi, snails and turtles (oh and waaayy too many frogs-what a racket!)- that's where my love of aquariums comes from. We had a 20-gal guppy tank. We used snails from the pond to keep it clean. As a kid, I enjoyed capturing a clump of frogs eggs and keeping them until they hatched- then I would release them. How much fun that was! (I think that's why we had all the frogs!)
