Very pretty!!! Start getting those little containers out to put your fry in! You are going to breed them, right? I mean, such beauty should be passed on.............

Nope...no limit:
http://www.calgaryaquariumsociety.co...37c58d635eae37

Mebbe I should bring 15 betta entries and 5 sword entries, eh?:P

Hmmm...I could get 10 ribbon points on 3 of the bettas....plus an additional point for each non-winning entry...and say 4 ribbon points for 2 swords, and 3 participation points for each non-winning sword...that would be....29 points!:P
