Thanks for the input Matt. I like him a lot so Ive put in a bid. He does have slightly excessive rays but a nice match for my girls in many ways. Not sure what the ray count is for my girls lol I should pay more attention. Lucky giant boy if I get him as he will be put to work shortly after he gets here
He's beautiful, look forward to seeing the spawn from that.
You've come to the right place! lol....I've bought from darn near every breeder on Aquabid it seems like. My all-time favorite seller is 3dbettas....he's got some really gorgeous and sometimes quite unusual males and females up for auction. I've bought many, many fish from him and he's always been amazingly friendly and customer service oriented. My avatar fish is one of the first fish I bought from him and he's still going strong 8 months later.
Other breeders I have bought from include Phusit, FarmFish66, Patsayawan, Chaba, Aquastar71, Banleangbettas, Taebetta, TTbetta, Elegantbettas, Greatbetta.
Lol! You have a lot of fish. I drooled over your albums. I've seen some of 3dbettas fish. They were all really beautiful. Im a little worried about shipping long distances. Especially since its so cold here if I get a new fish for christmas.
Has anybody ever bought from Jimxiong5749? They are actually in the same state and i've liked a couple of the bettas they have sold.
He is creepy but hes wierdly interesting, one of those "so ugly it's cute" fish. I've never heard the term "balloon" fish but I saw another one on another website. I wonder how they're bred? http://www.bettas-jimsonnier.com/genetics6.htm

I totally agree, I think he's interesting looking, as is the one in the pic you posted. If the photo was at a better angle and of a better quality maybe he'd look better...or worse lol!
I had heard the term before, but I'm not sure what it's referring to- bettas with "balloon" bodies, or bettas like the pic you posted that are crowntail types with excessive finnage between the rays of the tail, creating webbing sacks that look like little "ballooned" areas?

HHHHMM. So it wouldn't be good to breed them, right? You'd just breed a male with excessive rays to a female with excessive rays? How are bettas with excessive rays bred? What the maximum amount of rays a CT can have
Endless amounts of lovley fish on AB :D I reallyreally want some girls from there..but it's intimidating and i'm nervous eee @.@
Yay! Another Canadian! I was terrified the first time I bought some Aquabid fishies....the whole process seemed so complicated! But it's really pretty easy once you get that first purchase under your belt....and we can talk you through it, of course!
@ WhitneyLin: I haven't bought from Jimxiong5749 simply because he ships only within the U.S., but check out the feedback in Aquabid and see what buyers have said. I don't know if he's a breeder or just reselling fish he imported in bulk from Thailand or wherever.
