Hi there, my name is Joel! I make plush versions of your fish for a low cost. They're each handmade by me with high quality stuffing and pillow/blanket fleece so they're all machine washable. My betta's include flaring add ons; an extra piece that can be attached in seconds under your plush fishes gills to give him a flaring look. There are many other little goodies that come with your purchase as well, please read below to find out where to shop!
All of my plush betta's are $20 plus shipping. I now ship internationally; just know that you must pay shipping and any fees associated with shipping a product over-seas.
If you're interested in purchasing one of my fish, please visit the thread Joel's Betta Plush Creations Shop in the Betta Art section of this lovely website. Thank you very very much for reading this, and I hope to hear back from you soon! :)
Hey LBF, I was just wondering if you still breed splendens. The best petshop around here has closed and I'm not always happy with the quality and conditions of the others. It's also really hard to source bettas through the local club, which seems to view them as boring beginner fish, so I'm just sounding out Australian breeders for future. :)
Hi! Could you please take a look at my thread called "Betta Imbellis at petstore labeled female" (wont let me post a link)? I have a "female" That resembles a imbellis and "she" has no egg spot. I'm not quite sure what to do and I heard that you kept imbellis :)
Just wanted to tell you that I felt that your post in the thread about making this site better was the best post I read. I agree with you completely. You are very insightful especially for your age. I hope you don't mind me saying that :)
I'm not sure which of mine have been wild caught vs tank raised as I purchased all of mine through either my LFS or the Australian transhipper. I'm pretty sure a few of them were wild caught and imported in though.
Mine do seem to prefer a biotope style tank, and this is where you will find they colour up best in. None of my tanks are planted except for some riccia floating at the top of my albi tank. Instead I use pieces of wood and leaf litter to create hiding places for each fish.
Activity depends on the individual fish. My rutilans and coccina will nearly tear your arm off at feeding time, whereas my albis are much more subdued and will only eat certain foods. I have an uberis I never see even though I do my best to get it accustomed to me eg. handfeeding and have owned it for nearly two months now.
