I'm familiar with the background of the females presented here, not the male though. I'm having a hard time communicating with the breeder.
Indjo I know the males form isn't the best, but I love his coloring. Color-wise, he is my dream betta. That's why I want to choose the best female form wise, hopefully can eradicate this. I wasn't necessarily hoping for clean marbles either, I like them sort of messy looking with lots of colors.
I contacted the AB user profish, and I bought a few of his marbles. Then he offered me a really spectacular male who sold for 100+ a few weeks ago, but the buyer never got in touch with him, so now he is mine! These are the new males I will get in, he's also giving me two more females for free that I can pick from. I'll post the females photos here when I get them so you all can compare and contrast.
This came at a really good time. I lost an entire spawn yesterday and felt hopeless and like throwing in the towel. We agreed upon a more than reasonable price for 6 great marbles and I feel great about things again. Betta people are some awesome people!
