So I'm breeding bettas next summer because we're moving.

We're moving from Northern to Southern Virginia and I went to see the house today! It was amazing IMO. It has these cute little quotes on the wall in cursive with the same color of the wall in each room. Like: 'Happiness: [insert definition here]. It was awesome, there was 5 acres with a barn, a 'man cave,' and a bunch of cool rooms and such. I asked my mom if I could have a fish room, like instead of the stupid mancave. Sorry-those things are just stupid.

She said we'll talk about it, but I'm excited. Especially since if I breed the bettas in my room, I have a closet with a bunch of shelves to put the jars in.

Anyways, I just thought I should share that, now:

When I do breed, what kinds of bettas would you like to see? I need a pattern and coloration to strive for. I'll try em next summer.

DANG IT! Thank God I didn't put the house code up o-o, it's hilarious.
I'll put that with all the suggestions I get and put up a poll, I'll breed the one with the most votes xD. But that sounds really interesting! o-o

You can make some legit paper with EE's probably... you might want to contact an area fish shop and see if they'll sell for you :3
I will look in EVERY HOUSE IN VIRGINIA!! #Liamneeson

Well I'm going to strive for IBC standards xD and attempt to show after a few years of making the 'line.' But I'm leaning over to the butterfly EE idea, I even took 3 pages worth of notes of the standards and drew a little betta diagram c:. What colors of butterfly? Maybe when I breed I could ship one to you if you have any room next year xD. But then you'd know my address.

AND NEVERRRRRR ;U;


edit: whoa look at this guy http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/236x/09/c8/78/09c87824762dddaeb4015ee0be64f6e6.jpg

what if I made one of those? O-O

I dunno :p I just drew that one quickly, hopefully if I want one that long I could just find some long dorsal halfmoons o-o.

Like length on the body, not length away from the body. That makes no sense goodness. Look at the dorsal on Atlas in your pic, see how short the area is on his back where the dorsal comes from? On DT's this extends almost all the way to their caudal. That's what I'm talkin about.

Yus but if I mixed a DT with a HM it wouldn't look too good though? xD unless you mean like breed the DT out later but then I'd breed the dorsal out too probably.

Well yes, I atleast want the 180 degree caudal o-o. I neeeeeed it. I have a weird fetish for that. xD But I'll be happy regardless if my first spawn is healthy and successful.

Yeah but I read somewhere that HM's are like really crossbred and have some different tail genes in them o-o. Oh well it'd be interesting to see a Crowntail come out of an HM spawn lol.
