Here's the fish I got from the local breeder, they are AWESOME!

This guy had some amazing fish, He has friends in Thailand so he only breeds fish who are imported from there and they are pretty stunning. I came home with 3 girls, 2 boys and a sad wallet LOL I told myself NOOOOO boys, but I really couldn't pass these boy up, even with the big price tag. But I figure it's all worth it since I'm planning on breeding them.

A few weeks before a guy wanted to buy a bunch of his male Bettas but didn't want to pay for shipping so he drove all the way from Texas to pick them up, and drive back! And he bought 200 fish! That must of been so much work for the guy to drive with all those fish! LOL

Copper Dragon

Platinum Dragon

Blue dragon gas



here's the boys
Platinum dragon... fire? no idea what to call his fin colors lol




I love this guy. He had went on a longish car ride and bit up his tail, I really hope he isn't a tail biter and it was just a stress thing.
Copper dragon
Natural light

With flash




And here's the guy I bought earlier this week from a aquarium store that the breeder displayed some Betta, he was like half the price and I can't figure out why lol he's so pretty.

I forgot to add that all the fish I bought are 5 months old, they're huge and he doesn't even feed his fry live food (He gives them infusio, hikari first bites, and one other thing that he gave me but it's downstairs) O.O

The females were $20 each, one male was $40, and the other was $30. the blue dragon was only $15

And thanks XD He said when I breed them to call him up and he can give me more tips.

I feel like I over paid, but he also gave me a ton of almond leaves and showed me his breeding set up, and also gave me some artisans betta fry food.

Yeah poor dude, I hope his fins grow back really nice :D



The Platinum male has a really weird tail fin shape, I think he may be a feather tail but he hasn't flared for me yet so I'm not sure.

I'll try to get better photo's of them sometime. And When I figure out where I'm going to put my females I'll take more photo's of them as well. When the guy told me they where 5 months olf I thought "oh perfect, I can put them with my NIB Betta Females" But when I came and saw them they were the biggest females I have ever seen.... so yeah, they would kill NIBs girl fish XD

well you could have paid that in just shipping if you bought them on AB, so maybe try and think of it that way, lol

Yup, that's what I thought :D And since the breeder only breeds fish from Thailand it's like I just paid the import fee LOL.

I still can't get over the fact he doesn't use live food O.O and his Bettas where huge for only 5 months. He's going to teach me how he breeds his fish and I'm going to try it his way the first time.
