    Thank you, Steve If anyone would like to know where I got them (I bought five total) Please PM me. I will also explain about importing them. It is VERY easy and legal.

    Me again Cathy! My earlier jawdrop was largely because of the black n white guy with the fantastic pectination. Stunning and unforgettable. I know it's beautiful because I have to look at it again and again.

    Wow! The B&W one is gorgeous!

    I stopped keeping Bettas after Chairman Mao died (my red betta). He had a 20L tank all to himself. The tank had a filter that created a waterfall effect. Contrary to all the stuff I read about bettas liking still water, he totally loved it and would swim up to where the water ran down and "slide" down with the current. Now I have angels and 1 of them looks like she's bursting with eggs. Should I move the other angels or the parents? Decisions, decisions...

    again, he is sort of a freak.
    I've been trying to breed bettas. And going for the white crowntails. It is suppose to be easy? I'm waiting for the spring for the warm weather and I'm going to use planted 1/2 barrels and just let nature take its course. I've read several articles and I think this would work for someone that has no time

    If males are raised together (siblings) they usually don't fight. Great video of small Betta pond.

    "There are 150+ males in this pond they are 5 months old at the moment"
