    I was allways curious about breeding bettas but itlooked like WAY to much work.

    I was acutaly thinking about Getting TONS more plants in my aqarium, (this would be a while away though) and wait for their to be less fish in my tank, and get a male in their.

    Sweet fish either way!

    Thanks!

    It's not hard but somewaht tedious.. at first all the fry can be house together but then eventually have to be seperated O_O Thats when it becomes kind of a pain.. thats when you buy clear plastic party cups in bulk LOL!!

    Aww... i loved my bettas. a blue one and a red one. separate tanks of course. it was fun to watch them size up to eachother when they were close to each other. both died a while ago. later on im going to try them again.

    PS. Juan-Carlos: change your link to your growlist. after the sever change the links have to be changed to terraforums.

    I had a nice mustard gas delta and then he blew his fins and they never really grew back much (like he turned into a plakat). No way I'd ever pay more than $20 for a fish that can flush its "value" down the toilet so quickly and easily.

    Beautiful! But I agree with the rest that I'd never pay $200 for one fish...at least in my current mindset. The most I've paid is probably $10 and that did not turn out well(BN plecos). I'm guessing that was your dream fish though. A fish I would love to keep but have to tell myself to forget about would be Pteronotropis welaka or P. hubbsi. But I've often found the easier species "funner". While they may not be as challenging you can expect interesting things from them like eggs and fry.
