You selling Micro cultures? Grindals, Banana, etc? I would love to have someone to recommend on my FB group and my friend's.

Love the thread and new logo. Haven't been communicating lately; Russell's death, even though expected, hit me harder than I thought it would. Plus, grrrrrr, when Gary got back from PA last Thursday he had a nasty cold as a hitchhiker that immediately glommed on to me!!

Glad to see you back, I've missed you! I'm so sorry to hear about Russell 😢. Sorry you guys were sick and hope you both are feeling better.
I hvent thought about Micro cultures but I'm getting the feeling there is definitely a demand.
For now I am focusing on breeding my Bettas trying to get them to healthy adulthood and available for sale. I'm back in college after 30 years and wanted to start a new venture... I may look into the Micro cultures in the future....but for now just my betta babies. 😂

5-31-19: SPAWN LOG #15
It's been a while and now the fry are 5 weeks and 3 days old. Not growing as fast as I would have hoped but they are active and healthy.
I will be transferring the larger group of fry into a bigger container this weekend but captured a short vid of them after a bif BBS feeding. They are pretty catatonic as usual after eating a lot.

I know it's been a while and now the fry are about 8 weeks old. Here is a quick vid of the smaller to medium fry. They larger fry are in a plastic tote where they don't video well as the plastic is not very clear.

The vid is great. They should start to color up soon. I cant wait to see them. I have a tank waiting. That's Gilford the Guppy helping to cycle the tank.

The larger ones are starting to get a little color already so probably in the next few weeks, I'll take some out of the plastic tote and taks some pics.
I love your new tank setup by the way, it's beautiful!!😍

I'm in constant contact with Ma Betta and have been since her attempt to breed the Mustard Gas. It was a great thing to know that the two spawned. After the spawn there were 175 fry that survived. A great achievement to say the least. A few weeks after she removed the male from the tank and put him back into his tank Mas was fine until one morning she came out to find Mas dead. (It happens for any amount of reasons) Ma was heart broken. Mas was a beautiful Yellow and Blue Mustard gas Half Moon.

As the weeks progressed, and the fry grew to the point of being able to sex them. It became very clear that something in the gene mix did not take. There were no mustard gas colors. However the babies, when they did color. were still beautiful. In colors of reds and blues and could still be marble.

In the past couple of months Ma had a serious injury to her shoulder, and is now recouping from the surgery. She has consigned all of the fry to a local shop and some have even been shipped to Hawaii. As soon as she can she will try again, and I hope everything goes well for her this time. She should be back on the forum soon I hope. I really do miss my friend.

My best wishes for Ma Betta, I am sorry to hear of Mas's death and that none of the fry took-at least Mas left a legacy, that's more than the most of us can say when our beloved fish die.
I have seen quite a few mustard gas coloured bettas since first reading this thread a few months ago at my local Big Al's (fish store chain)-they have "normal" Bettas ie. VTs and crown tails very inexpensive and usually well kept and then the 'fancier' selections of koi/marbling/trascluent/EE ect. usually at least 60-70 different 'fancier' varieties and quite amazing to look at (at least now that I know all the terminology). Maybe you or Ma Betta will have some luck finding one in a local store.
