What I'm mainly going to do is sell to my friends and people in my town. They don't know the difference between a VT and an HMPK but I can still charge $20 for a male and most people are fine with that. Maybe 1/2 to pet stores.

Nope hm require cleaner water to have nice fin
Better food
More work to keep there spread
If I breed hm a fish will cost me roughly $1-$2 to rear that's if I have the set up already
Hmpk $.80-$1.20
Vt n Pk $.30-$.60
Y breed hm as a profit when most of the stock is hard to move
super delta n delta I sell them at $3-$5 each local n I got a hard time moving

Well, any fish you breed should have clean water and the best foods possible... And crowntails are actually more difficult. Plus, even if it costs 2$ to raise a hm and .60$ for a vt, you can sell HM for way more.

I do agree that 20$ is pretty high for a fish, unless you're breeding top quality.

I know but most people that I sell to don't ! I will actually charge less than that, though.

Lol, you have no clue what you are talking about! Also, can you at least TRY to use correct spelling and grammar?

I guess I don't have any clue cause I only sold about 2,000+ fish so far.

Lol. Personally I don't think any Betta requires any different care in raising. But everyone has different experiences and opinions. I don't think that HM's need cleaner water, better food and more work.. I mean I wouldn't just clean and feed only HM's well and neglect the HMPK just because.... HM's apparently have different needs than HMPK's.

I think it costs about the same amount... If anything HMPK's need more space as they have shorter fins and swim faster and are more active, therefor would appreciate more space.

CFB. I don't doubt your experience with Bettas as I know you are a big breeder and have been doing so for a while. I know you may have had your own experiences and have had to pay extra for HalfMoon Betta fry care. I don't think it's any different but everyone has their own experiences, opinions and thoughts on this matter
