So, my christmas present to myself, a pair of GORGEOUS black dragon halfmoon plakats, will be here in about two weeks (shipping out from Bangkok-and we complain about trailering a horse two states away!) and depending on how much free time I have in the next few months I'm thinking about trying for a spawn from them before I start sending them out for a few IBC shows in the spring. I've dubbed them Beetlejuice and Morticia! Appropriate, yes? Anyways, I was just wondering if there were any HGS members out there who might be interested in getting a new fishy in a few months. Because I live in a dorm room my space is somewhat limited, so I'm trying to get as many potential homes lined up as possible before I get to the holy-carp-I've-now-got-300-jars-to-clean-every-day phase. I may be working with the little local fish store too, which is exciting, and the top few show prospects will go up on aquabid, but considering I could end up with four or five hundred fry tapping into every market possible isn't a bad idea Prices will be pretty varied between sex and quality, but most (males) will probably be in the $15-20 range, not counting shipping. Females may or may not be cheaper depending on how well the first few sell on aquabid-sometimes the the big breeders bite, sometimes they don't. Let me know what y'all think! I guarantee that, while more expensive than your average petco betta, bettas from breeders are always healthier, happier, and more fun to have around! Btw, photo rights belong to their breeder. Also, I'm also trying to buy a stunning little lavendar, hot pink, and pale pink marbled female. She's just sort of an "I'm sorry about all the fish. Here, have a pretty pink one!" present for my roommate, but if the breeder is willing to part with her father or brother as well that might also be a strain I start having available. EDIT: Also, lookie lookie what I got! For those who prefer the flashier betta. Now to find a male... EDIT #2: Male found! These guys might have to be a second breeding down the road.
