Talking I want to buy her for my future spawn

http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1301112610


I have always love purple bettas and when i came across her i knew she would be the future mother to my future spawn, she is gorgeous, what do you guys think?
I havent purchased her yet but i did get into contact with the breeder last night.

I think she's very pretty, but only so so on quality... plus breeding purple isn't necessarily going to give you purple fry.

Perhaps you could ask the breeder if there is anything the fish would be faulted for at show. Most good breeders will answer this honestly. If that does not matter to you and you just want to breed bettas to have the experience, that is an alternative I guess.

thats what im waiting for. Not entirely wanting to get into show breeding but i do want to have a great line going, and it will be something if i can get a lps or two to buy them since i dont see any halfmoons being sold, just the basic vt, ct and dt.

Nice fish, but not great finnage. She looks purple, but she's blue with a red wash. She'll throw multis. Personal preference, but I wouldn't pay $25 for her, even in Loonies .

The same breeder has other, nicer fish. I like this one better, and it is $5 less.

Perhaps there are excessive Canadian fish import fees, but I think that this breeder is on the expensive side for the quality of their Bettas.

I was looking at her as well and it has been a toss-up between the two lol
I would agree its expensive but its better than paying for a really gorgeous betta only to be told the seller cant ship across borders and getting a refund, its more then a kick in the gut to be denied your dream betta

I just might go for the lavender blue female..... think think think.....
