You are all so kind in your offerings but I am from Canada so that does not help me out, but thanks for the thought....
This pair was from Xman bettas. One reason I am having issues with this lady is she has not been upfront and honest from the beginning with me. When I asked where this pair came from she ignored my messages and would not reply. She at first said Korwhord, when I emailed them and they looked back they did not sell any fish to her. So what I did was contact our one and only trans shipper here in Canada and he looked back and said they 100% came from Xman Bettas. So I then let her know and she played dumb about it all. But that was okay at least I knew where they came from and put my mind at ease.
Korwhord has some nice looking fish for sure, sorry to hear MrVampire that you have had issues with them. They are one breeder that is highly recommended to me from many. But I guess its a chance one takes. I do think that these bettas have a really hard time with not only the traveling, handling but also when they do arrive at their final destination and different water etc. Its so hard on them. So I will have to really think about this long and hard.
All my bettas are kept in 1 gal tanks, water temp 78 degrees, water changes often with treated water. I feed a mix of pellet and frozen foods. So I think I am giving them good housing but maybe this guy just could not handle it all and I am so sad today as he was beautiful.
So now, what do I do. I think I will "try" and pair my HM male with the HMPK female and see what I get. I really love the color white and I don't mind working on it if I get some fry with wash and maybe just maybe there will be some nice solid white with no wash....
One last thing, if any of you have time and can go and look on aquabid and see the whites available at the moment and give me any feed back on what you see there and breeders as I don't know them at all that would be really helpful. I would want a HMPK white.
Thank you KadenJames for letting me hijack your thread here for some help. I hope you have some very nice babies from that handsome black.
