I would too if I could, but with my 60 gallon, 2 ten gallons, and all my mini tanks..... I dont make enough money to be able to afford a 30 dollar shipment :\
This is my new guy Drake. I am just now realizeing that instead of being green and black he is actually a really dark red and blue.... but he has a lining of black on the tips of his fins. Still in love with him though :)

He is SO pretty!! ^^ and yeah I know, tanks are costly haha!! I am thinking of re-homing my mollies so I have the 20 gallon free.. winter is going to be bad and all my lil' buddies who (most of the heaters made my room a sauna) don't need a heater right this moment, will need one soon!!

I'm going through the same issues with the heaters! Earlier this year I actually had to take them out because my tank was getting over heated (lights were to hot) but my cat decided the rubber parts were fun to chew on.... Now I have to replace them all before winter comes! That right there will be my 30 dollar shipment lol

haha I know right??? I rescued one too many bettas so I am in a tight squeeze of room. My healthier, less prone bettas can stay in the "goldfish bowl" which is about 2-3 gallons I guess... with a heater of course. Everyone gets clean bowls/tanks anyways :p I never had a problem since my first betta (about 8 years old before dying from medicine...) as long as I keep everything clean >< lol.

I would however, like to know about genetics... like you. o.o yes I have had and have bettas... but... never knew much of genetics hahaha

To a lot of people the genetics isnt really that important.. and honestly it's not a big deal to me but I have always been curious as to how it works.

But it might just be one of thoes "learn as you expirence it" situations. Learn what youd get by breeding and seeing what you got.

All about expirementing XD

I'm actually trying this moment to spawn my VT male and VT female. But my male doesnt seem to be interested in making a nest... just showing off. Now if he was showing off to a guy he'd build nests like crazy!

Now I'm also finding out that my HM male has found an interest in my very big VT female.... and she has actually gotten really shy when it came to him! I might just give them a try in a couple days.. would be interesting to see. But that is only if my VT's dont work out together.

Hmm... when he sees a male he makes a nest? let him be in sight of the female, and a male. A male spurs his instincts, a female completes them:p
