Tee Hee xD I can't help but just go d'awwwww lol I've only had VT and CTs since I never really get access to the other ones.

I get really attached to my bettas and call the [male] ones Mr. Grumpy Fins from time to time.

Ok, there are some videos of a few that I am either thinking of letting go. The mustard Gas are usually hold backs so I am still unsure of offering them up for sale. I have to see what other surprises I have in the other grow outs

Yes, all are great and they eat all of those things but when they are able to take brine shrimp (adult) its a good indicator that they are stronger and more able and will readily accept other foods. They get Grindle worms too for a good part of their growing up.

Is that a home made tray system for the adults you have going? I will probably build something when things get closer to buy-time.

Thanks for sharing them with us.
No, I never keep any adults in what is called a barracks system. I feel its too much risk that if one gets sick they all get sick. So i keep them all separate. More work, but healthier bettas. Thanks for the compliment

For my Mustard Gas line, which varies from Light lavender Bicolor to Dark Blue and Yellow, they are almost breeding true, so I'm crossing my fingers for maybe sometime next year??

Videos are coming up shortly, posting a link soon. Most of these that I am posting will be for SALE.

The breeders tend to keep them to see the true spread of their finnage and show/breeding potential. But sure, I could offer a few 1/2inchers to you no problem for you to grow out on your own.

Thanks, can hardly wait to see the videos!

p.s.

Wanted to add that your two betta males are awesome and doing really well at home and were unaffected by hurricaine sandy and her friend Nora-easter.
Great! Thanks Albert, maybe at next swap?
