Thank you for welcoming me and for the compliments.
I actually just recently got a DSLR camera to take pictures of my fishes, and am very new in this type of photography. Still learning how to focus/adjust speed/aperture bla bla... :) The pics I post probably are the few decent ones ie. 1% of all the pictures I take. Bettas are just active fish and are a challenge to take photos of!
Don't u agree?
I haven't really bred other types of fish, but I've kept probably a dozen (or more) types of fishes. I have had guppies and swordtails reproducing for generations but I don't really consider that I've "bred" them.
At this point I'm really serious about bettas. I currently have a super small spawn of red dragon plakats (1.5 months), a gold/dragon HM spawn (1 month). My newest project is a metallic dragon non-red HM spawn -I'm using the father as my current avatar-
but I see it may not be quite successful as both the parents are too inexperienced.

Omgs those are some beautiful fish!!..
Who was the breeder you brought the male & female off?
For this spawn, I have no clue who the breeder(s) of the parents are as I bought them from an LFS at two separate occassions. Never asked the shopkeeper, and I doubt he knows the answer anyway...
