    I know! I noticed that most of some breeders fish on there weren't even theirs. Also some of the best breeders dont even speak english which is very unfortunate. Also maybe I can use the google translator lol...

    I know what you mean! Marbles can change into a completely different looking fish! I was reading the article named "The Ever Changing Marble" on www . bettysplendens . com Her articles are amazing!

    And yes I just seen the picture on Yudy Gondrong's profile. I sent a request so I will have access to their profile.

    actually i have a lot of quality show males that do well in IBC (gotta uptate signature) but yeah ill put them on there... i did a experiment that compared fish living in a lot of commercial chemicals compared to natural substances, i had a male that lived 2 years longer than a fish being more dependent on chemicals (commercial watersoftener rather than peat moss, etc.)
    here let me facebook him and i will find the address... i dont think its north though.

    do you think that it might be possible to have a one pipe line to lead from a clean water source just for the fish water supply? because it could be a form of metal rust poisoning, i had a huge spawn get completely wiped out that way, they werent so immune to it, being used to being in nice biofiltered water

    also my soroities are heavily planted so that minimizes the amount of water changes... for males the 2 1/2 gal are also planted plus i hooked up a multistage filtersysyem, like those in a fish store.

    lol trust me i used too be a HUGE gamer until i discovered the joys of fishkeeping. hide his playstation, lol. too many games kill my brain, but i slowly got off my "addiction" because my parents set up a parental program for my computer that limits my internet time
    I would assume that it may be that the water pipes have rusted and are old, which is really a pity

    Btw, if you ever get the international shipping issue sorted out, I would gladly take any bettas you are having a hard time getting rid of off your hands, I have a sort of "bettary" that I set up, it will comfortable house about 1,000 bettas (I have 515). Also I heard that you can sell fish through eBay and Amazon, though I would rather stick to Aquabid.

    About 3 months ago, one of my my trophy-winning show males Dead Sunlight (super black melano HMPK which accounts for his lacy blackish fins, I bred him too) won 1st for an IBC competition for "best maintained strain" and "best color/finnage"... Afterwards one lady commented on how you should never underestimate the power of young people :)
    I think you should introduce your son to the wonders of the betta world. If you have a spawn in progress, show him what an embrace REALLY looks like, he will surely be amazed.

    The reason why a lot of people haven't been encountering the same problem is because admittingly Indonesia isn't the best when it comes to water quality in comparison to the States or other countries... If possible, try to obtain water through natural sources (rice paddies, just be sure that the areas where rice is being grown isn't sprayed by a pesticide or some other substance) and then you can biofilter it to rid of the water of "all manner of wicked beasties..."

    My cousin doesn't have an account on here, but I can try to find his store's number so maybe that you can visit it. He specilizes in all manner of oriental fish breeding. Also, it doesn't cost that much to open a store in Indo, when I have to return back to the States either I'll close shop or if he wants to, he can run it as well...
