High quality bettas

I am a member of the International Betta Congress and I have been successfully breeding bettas since the beginning of 2012. Even though I do not follow show standards, my fish are significantly more symmetric and better developed than the ones you would normally found at your local fish place:

The bloodline came from Thailand, and is composed of generations and generations of selective breeding. Not the end of result of "whatever x mightwork" seen on most veil tails;

The diet of the fish is prestine: never overfed, so no swimbladder under developed (no tail-heavy fish) and no bovine heart. My fish grow slow, but live longer (according to the literature, might reach 8 years if kept in warm waters);

The water they are born and raised is 82F. There is no metabolic disfunction due to hypothermia.

I focus on halfmoons and halfsuns, but the halfsuns F2 generate some crowntails too.

With that said, I recently moved to Boston and no longer have the network of LFS and regular buyers that I used too. For me to continue enjoying the hobby of breeding bettas, I need a new target audience. Based on that, I am willing to start shipping next spring.

If I get 10 people or so that would consider buying some bettas around April (100% up to you, no obligations), I will consider breeding this holidays.

Here are some of my fish:

I have one pair being conditioned as we speak. Let's wait for snow melting temperatures and here we go.

Stay tuned.

Count me in when you're ready. I'm in a local fish club and have contacts in lots of others. I can take a bunch of them and give them happy homes.

This is great. I am actually willing to drive and deliver if there is an order of 50+ anywhere in Upstate NY.

Let's see what I can come up with, but I have a nice pair with marble genes, the possibilities are infinite!!
