Then to answer your question, I am.
I currently breed Betta splendens, both Singletails and Doubletails. If you are in the Central Florida area, I have some breeders I am willing to sell. I don't ship so it's pick up only

Well then there is good news and bad news. The bad news is that we are too far apart to do a "local pick up" LOL The good news is that I don't have any opaques DTs anyway

I hope you get to find some as they are nice looking fish

That was the same with my pet store bur the all of a sudden they had this really ugly double tail so I bought him and bred him hehe I ended up with a magnificent silver body with red fins ^.^
just keep trying hehe I also found my fully black crown tail there but normally if you want a really nice variety of tails and colours a real fish store would have them

I have a local Betta Club. They had a huge Betta Show/Sale earlier this year. Buy from a breeder if possible. AquaBid has some awesome fish

I have always wanted to breed bettas but I find that it is more space consuming and hard than taking care and breeding guppies, though you make more money on bettas.

I haven't got that far but if I breed them the fish shop will take them and I'll keep a few I just want a whole book shelf with all different types of bettas in nano tanks there too beautiful to only have one and they can't be housed together, such a shame
