    Hi! I wanted to share this betta buddy named "Pepe" with you all. I haven't had a betta since Roy G. Biv, a Walmart betta I had for several years, passed away. It's been such a joy to rediscover the intelligence and personality of this little fish, and I'm so glad to have come across this...

  4. The Koi Betta Journey Journal

    Well, it's about time I started one of these! A little bit about my background: 10+ year fish keeper. Decent success in saltwater but I have transitioned to freshwater and have found it far more affordable/rewarding/enjoyable. I currently maintain 4 planted freshwater tanks all less than 10...

    Betta Pictures
    Hi everyone. This is my first post. The thing is that I just bought my first pair of Bettas at Petco. They look pretty nice, healthy gills, bright colors, etc. The female is obviously a Koi Betta, I have no doubt of that. But the male is supposed to be a Paradise Betta like this one...

  10. Cellophane Breeding Pair

    Breeding Betta Fish
    I recently ordered a cellophane breeding pair from Becky's Bettas. The two are goregous HMPK. The only flaw in the finnage is a little split white tip on the end of one of the male's ventrals. There are no spots on either, absolutely pure cellophane. I was led to believe they may carry the koi...
  11. Question for Experienced Koi Betta Breeders

    Breeding Betta Fish
    I have a beautiful koi female. Should I breed her to a solid red male, a cellophane male, a white male, or another koi? I keep reading confusing things. But those of you who have had success breeding specifically for Koi coloring, what would you suggest for me? Thank you so much!

    spawning "success" today. i didnt know what name to give this beautiful male before, but i have a good idea now... his name is Dinkus, here's what makes Dinkus special: 1) rather than build a bubblenest under the leaves i provided him, he decides to build without it. 2) rather than build a...
