I've taken in several fish that might be culled otherwise because they had some deformity and couldn't be bred or shown. I wish I could take in more but I just don't have the room.

I think doing it for any reason other then for the love of the fish/advancement of the species would make you a bad breeder, as opposed to the opposite way around.

OH MY GOD I hate stories like that. It's not right that someone can just give up the child and then years later want them back. That is so sad and not fair for the kid. It's because of things like that where americans go to other country to adopt. I am so sorry its just not right.

Fish keeping is very therapeutic. It helped me during hard times. I have a good friend that is fighting cancer and sadly it looks to be winning. Her daughter is 16 and I set up a fish tank for her and I am teaching her how to care for the fish. It is helping her during this very hard time.

Update- Received my female from Basement Bettas today. She is absolutely stunning- thank you all so much for the recommendations! And, to make me even happier, Sherolyn from Basement Bettas threw in another lovely green marble female as a nice surprise. (Thankfully, I do have a few extra small QT tanks lying around, so she has something to live in until I can get her a bigger home! lol) Both are gorgeous fish, nicely and securely packed; overall a wonderful experience. Can't recommend her highly enough! Looking forward to getting started breeding in the spring!

Your fish sound wonderful. I knew they would be, coming from Sherolyn. :) I'll be looking forward to reading your spawn log next spring.

They are wonderful! And for whatever reason, these ladies recovered from their journey and acclimated much more quickly than the other 2 fish I've received in the mail (both from different sellers). They got their color back within minutes of releasing them into their tanks and are swimming around vigorously without a seeming care in the world already. Actually, the one female is in a tank that has an LED light/bubbler, and I was wondering how she'd be with the bubbler. It's adjustable, so I can turn it down or off completely if she didn't like it. She's been swimming back and forth through it for hours. LOL I think she likes it! But in any case, I'm just very impressed. In addition to being beautiful and well-bred outwardly, they seem very healthy and well-cared for, to have acclimated as quickly as they did. I couldn't be happier with them. <3 And I'll definitely be keeping a spawn log! I want everyone to see the beautiful babies that my lovely pair creates!

I'm glad they're doing so well. It just goes to show you that you'll get nothing but top quality from Sherolyn.
