Do you plan to ship them or sell/give away near you?

Both. I plan to sell on here, on AB, and to a few of my nicer LFS here. Give a few away to friends and such who want them and I can check in on and make sure they are being treated right. I will of course probably keep two or three sibling pairs of each. That way I can breed them and get better traits.

I am doing this as a small side business, also just because I love my bettas haha.


I am looking at setting up a couple plant and snail tanks to breed my own snails, and grow my own plants. Anywhere I can to effectively cut down cost in the long run.

I agree! I would love to have my snails breed and have a bunch of them but lately its not been as easy. I guess because i only found a couple and one died. Though i do have a nice tiny little ramshorn baby snail.

I want to start growing water sprite and get a bunch of pond snails. Maybe even try breedin mystery snails i dont know how but maybe ill get lucky with pitting a bunch together lol.

I also want marimo balls. They are so pretty and fry LOVE them
Haha mystery snails do look really nice in a big tank and with fry even better. I hear that their nests are pretty big as well.

yeah Marimo balls are great, I just cant afford em. Places here sell them for 8-10 each -_- totally insane on prices.

Yeah Mystery Snails are nice. I have a few other types of small snails that came with some moss.
So here is hoping I can get that planted tank off the ground at some point. My breeding comes first though haha.

Yep, well I just ordered some IAL, IAB, and bidding on microworms. So if i get that stuff i will be one step closer to being ready to breed. Of course I have to wait on the orders to come in. Once they come in I should be sitting pretty good, or at least a few steps closer.

Yeah, I'm going to try IAL for the first time, when I get my giant pair anyway:) I have never tried Microworms. Only BBS.

Yeah this will be my first time with IAL too, so see what happens. I am doing both BBS and MicroWorms myself.
