New Arrivals

The mailman just dropped a box from Thailand (well, actually from Fresno).

Two males and three females. Here are the Aquabid photos... I will post some of my own photos once the fish have recovered from their jet lag.

This guy chewed his tail up pretty bad . From Patsayawan (Thitipong):



This guy looks fine From Aquastar71 (Kit):



This little lady is really something . From 1960 (Chalerm):



Two other females that were not pictured at auction were from Patsayawan, a sibling to the tailbiter, and a blue HM BTF.

They are all much larger than my domestic Bettas, and are doing fine. They have already snacked on some frozen brine shrimp.

The plan is to spawn the yellow HM BTF sibling pair, and the blue/yellow HM BTF x blue/yellow HM as soon as they are ready.

Communication with all three breeders went well, especially Chalerm. Communication with the trans-shipper, not so well.

Oh WOW. Those fish are gorgeous! Especially the first one! It's a shame he chewed his tail. But I'm sure it will grow back and look just as magnificent as before. :)

The important thing is that he didn't chew the genes out of it

Haha, yep. That's honestly the nicest yellow BTF I've ever seen.

okay, I think I may be willing to force myself to be patient to get a boy for a chance at one like the first guy, love him

OK, can I have your fish? LOL. Just kidding (kindaa) :P
I seriously LOVE yellow bettas. You are so LUCKY!!!
They are all gorgeous, but my favourite is the first boy. I'm sorry he bit his tail though. I'm sure it will grow back fine!
I'm so jealous!! You've got some beautiful bettas there!

I don't think so... he tore it up so bad that he is bleeding from the rays in his tail.

I've got him in some Bettamax to make sure he doesn't get an infection.
