well i was thinking about spawning the female in my avi, she is going to be shipped to me soon. i have no idea what she is a delta or a HM. i have a black orchid CT, but his webbings appear to be "dented" then there is my VT, which i refuse to spawn.

That female is ok but slightly unbalanced. As I have said before don't even plan spawns yet. Learn what to do first.

Microworms are realllllllly easy to keep and culture..I've had the same culture going since November, I just re-culture to keep it going, even though the babies arent eating them anymore

I can supply you with three kinds of cultures (see my thread).

Although easy is nice, if you don't want to do a lot of work then fish is the wrong hobby for you. I easily spend 4 hours a day in the fish room (good thing I do online school...).

i mean how do you culture them?
like, how big of an container? how do you feed (the culture)? what temp, etc
but thanks Mr.V the thing is, you are telling me not to breed isn't it? you haven't told me directly though, sorry if am wrong, it is just how many times you tell me the bad side of things. i know that it takes much time, i know it takes patience, etc
i actually know a fish breeder (he bred betta's, dicus, angelfish, and other) well he stopped breeding, but he knows things still, i could ask him as well

All directions are included but the things you need are:

Oatmeal and cornmeal
Bakers yeast
A couple of plastic containers
A spray bottle of dechlorinated water

I'm not saying don't but I think you really need to consider what you're doing. It's not easy and like I've said; research before even buying the materials.

Mr. V just wants to help. he helps me with my questions. :V he breeds for form and fin quality, so he looks for that in fish. the female you bought is beautiful in color, but she may not be in finnage, and he looks at that, rather than color. so, it makes sense that he'd point out all the flaws in finnage in any betta you show him. if he says a betta isn't worth breeding, though, there HAS to be something wrong with it. dip in the head, tumor you may not see, kink in the spine... things like that, or it may be a rose tail, which are known to pass on all kinds of problems, not just in finnage(which is often way heavy).

personally, i think your new female is lovely. she has great color, and obvious breeding/submission bars. i don't know much about finnage, though. x:
