    Bettas are widely bred. Vendors, LFS, etc already have their own supplier/s. I have never sold, only give away. But this hobby is getting more expensive (for me) and I need to balance my sheets. The only way to sell big numbers is to ship abroad..... which I can't do because I know no one (personally) in the business.

    My water supply sometimes suddenly becomes deadly if the water company flushes the tanks. If I'm not careful, more wc will kill more fish. Plus other factors like rats, cats etc. (my bettas are all outside). Then there's the rain which hits a few of my tubs if I forget to cover.

    Lately many go without "saying goobye" lol. They just suddenly die. But my biggest issue is water supply. Sometimes my tanks need new water but then the water company flushes (the water becomes yellow/dirty) so I have to postpone another week, wait until everything is crystal clear. What gets to me is that other people around here don't experience this.

    I too no longer have any HM. I'm trying to make a line of dragons - blue/green and the copper line - both regular and Giant. I currently have a copper. royal blue and green drg giant. My regulars are blue/green drg and the red drg line incl. gold and platinum.

    Most things have been going wrong for me since last year..... Don't know why, but I cant seem to keep them alive for long. My average was 2 yrs but now it's about 6-8 months (most indo bettas live to ave. 1.5 yrs).

    Further I seem to be having a hard time getting rid of my stock. The person who usually takes them isn't into bettas anymore and other people won't take them - mainly because I'm "his" customer. .... don't understand.

    Wow.... you're busy. lol

    That's nice of your cousin.... he must be planning to take you to either Sumatra or Kalimantan (Borneo) because as far as I know, there are no wilds in Java anymore ..... unless you go to ..... natural resorts(?) - protected natural areas. Btw is your cousin into bettas too?

    Can't help it, but your kinda weird. lol. I mean most teenage girls, if not all, I know .... you are a girl right? .... wouldn't go near such places..... reminds me of me at your age - I preferred to go to natural places instead of "teenage hangouts".

    Nah, I can't afford more than one type of fish at a time. And discus wouldn't be one of them. If I do stray from bettas, I'd probably get into goldfish again.

    I need to update my album. They're all gone - Last year was a bad one for me. I lost all of my collection twice.

    I'm not into HM at the moment because I can't find good HM lately. So I'm trying PK and Giants - preferably dragons (drg giants aren't always available).

    I'm trying to. Unfortunately it's a lot harder than I thought. But hopefully I'll get there. Shipping from Indo cost more. Since no one ships regularly to the US, we have to ship to Thai who then ships to the US.

    Oh, I don't work with melano's. That's a black copper.
    What kind/color of giants do you have? Are you planning on breeding them?

    Wow, full masked drgns..... nice.
    ...... I'm too lazy to make spawn logs, partly because I don't have a good camera to show my results. Plus I don't like typing too much..... very slow typist. lol

    But I plan to make one on giants soon since more and more are interested in them.

    Hey, long time no see. How's it going?

    So you're into IBC now? (read your post on Green Tea's thread). Congrats. So that means you're still into bettas.... great.

    Looking forward to your spawn logs.....

    IKR, the one stop shop to all your betta needs, and the employees will take a test on betta fish, so that no morons who give out horrible info, can get hired....
