Soil? How could I clean the tank...? Sorry, I have no knowledge when it comes to live plants. Bettas, I know soooo much. Plants, nope. Nada. Hehe. I think I will just stick with silk for now, at least for a few more months until I make sure Liberty, my CT is okay and everything. I posted a thing about his fins in another post... but thanks you guys. I will definitely look into live plants.

All but my Goldfish, Pleco, 3 of the 4 females and my butterfly CT (those were from petsmart) are from petco. They get some nice fish in. I know many pro breeders that breed for show say "Don't get fish from pet stores" and I think thats bull. Just because most of them are mutts and not "pure lines". Thats dog show crap. Even when I showed horses I never had the "pure one", but I still kicked everyone's butt!

I think it is possible to start your own line from a pet store fish. It might take a long time to get just the right one to where you can show it, but I can be done! Really when you think about it in the animal world and what we have done to create new and cool looking colors, shapes and so on.....everything is pretty much a mutt in its own way, even us humans!

Sorry for the short rant. Sometimes "standards" make me a little irritated.

Here are some photos of my babies ^_^

I saw a post on that yesterday, I think... put "walstad method" in the search bar and you should pull up some threads on it...

Okay, I'll check it out. And my oh my, what lovely bettas lilchiwolf!!! Love your Super delta/delta. Very pretty. I have never done any breeding, but I love some of the bettas I have seen at petco. I wouldn't mind breeding some crowntails or deltas from there. :) But I have no experience, no place for the fry, and no homes to give the end result to. Thus, breeding is not for me. :)
