Those are excellent pics Frank. I remember seeing them long ago but well worth reposting IMO.

I lucked out and got my crowntail and a local lfs. The half moon I ordered in from a breeder.

Excellent images! Those beat any of mine that I took by far! What camera and lens were you using for those?

Pete looks great, he has really long fins compared to the VT's that I see around here.

Thanks! I got Pete from PetSmart. I've also had a female betta (Henrietta) and a male betta (Lil' Red) in the past. I think I got both from Wal-mart. . . the female came from Wal-mart at least anyway.

What do you all feed your bettas out of curiosity? I feed mine betta pellets, but I'd like to pick up something else to feed him. I was thinking either freeze dried blood worms or freeze dried shrimp. I'd do frozen, but I only have him and don't want to overfeed.

Guppyman--those pics are awesome! I've never seen a betta fry before, and I didn't realize that was what they were at first!

Hi, Jacko. TY for the compliment. The camera is a Canon 1Ds. The lens was the Canon MP-E 65mm macro. Two Canon 550 EX flashes were also used. I'm sure I shot a 30 day pic. Will have to check my library. If I find it, I'll add it. - Frank

Well, I don't breed my Bettas, but I do have a few of them, so i figured i'd show them off!

My Handsome Boy (sorry, not the best pictures):




And My pretty Girls:




And my last lady wouldn't let me get a good picture, so here's a couple (crappy) one of her head and one of her body:




Thanks for looking!

And I just wanted to say that you all have some absolutely stunning bettas!

Update:
My big red male passed away two days ago, so I decided to go out and buy 3 more.. A veil tail with deep blue/purple with a orange wash.. Who I will breed with my current female who has a similar orange/red wash..

And a pair of bright blue crown/comb tail bettas that have a lil red wash in the finage..

Will re-edit when good pictures are taken and add them later
