I dont mind the price really - and I mean it wouldnt be so much if I didn't live so far away. Most of that cost is shipping, and that's just part of being Canadian really.

I considered getting some females too, but right now dont have the room to qt them. So just the one guy I couldnt let go.

I know, it's crazy.....American transhippers charge $2 per fish and Hung Pham charges $10!!! I actually contacted some American transhippers to see if they could accept the fish and then ship to Canada....2 didn't reply at all and the 3rd said "no way". But, the fish room manager at one of the Big Al's stores said he imports all his bettas from an American transhipper in Florida. Soooo.....yeah.

Oh, what a handsome guy! I hope one day you find another dream betta. I've always loved reds too (just not the Cambodian based ones....). I finally got this guy in my last Aquabid shipment (I bought a red previously, but he was DOA).

At one point recently, I had 3 adult male HM dark reds...from 3 different Thai breeders: phusit (whom I still need to breed!), interbettas (he was outstanding....we have a few of his spawn but no complete reds...all red devils!), and Nice Bettas (Sam was my favorite (named after Sam, Aussie actor of "Avatar"....I told his breeder he was the Sam (actor) of red bettas...so she picked out the "jessica alba" of red Betts females for me :)....kind of became a long running joke!
Anyway, bred Sam to a black orchid/copper female 6weeks ago in his Natural Planted Tank, so I have red babies, etc living w/dad unharmed (trick I learned from Old Fish Lady on this forum :)

About to put my copper black crowntails (black w/green lines instead of black orchids which have pinkish/purple lacing) in another 5g NPT....its great seeing them breed in a more natural setting....neither "Jessica" nor "Sam" snacked on their spawn!

Right now I have about 200 spawn less than 2mos old from 4 different pairings!
