"I'm so confused as to why so many people want to breed betta. There are literally half a dozen betta breeding questions on here an hour. Betta aren't even worth breeding unless they're true to colour, meaning one solid colour that doesn't change in the light or a specific colour design and if they're anything but veiltails. There are so many people on here that say they went to a pet store and got their betta, betta from petstores are through and through mutts. Plus, the fry are really hard to feed.
Unless you've gotten betta from a breeder that sold you a mating pair. It's just not worth it. A mating pair will be easy to breed cos they already know each other. Plus, you'll get $2 a pop for your pretty males when you can be making $50+ for every single fry that came from a mating pair. Some can even be worth $300-$5000."
was someone's reply to a person asking about betta breeding. Why do people think breeding bettas are for money? Personally, I just wanted to see if I could... so far... I can. Even if I couldn't at first, I would try until I could. I have people lined up for my batch, because they can see how I care for them, know they are cared for, and know what general cross their bettas are (halfmoon and crowntail)... just because my fish are mutts, doesn't make them worthless :(
Who on here, breeds bettas for "300-5000" dollars? and who on here, breeds because: they can, they wanted to, learning experience, advancing in breeding ability...?
