LOL....yes, Matt! You heard correctly! I was actually going to contact you to give you first dibs. If you are willing to help cover the shipping costs, I would give you the fish for free.....although I'm nervous about shipping them, I must admit. Give me a couple of days to get my 20 new fish settled (the ones coming today...lol) and then I'll try to give you some pics to choose from. If there are specific things you are looking for, let me know.....as you know, I have a wide variety! Off the top of my head, I have a black dragon HM, a few turquoise HM, green/yellow grizzle HM, silver with slight copper grizzle (the shiniest fish I've ever seen, but now I have 2 of them....), blue with red fins....just to name a few. I also have some with damaged tails (they bit their tails during shipping and have just never quite recovered) that I wouldn't mind rehoming.
Anyway, if you can talk me through the shipping process, I would be happy to let you have whatever you want!
I have never tried breeding....would love to one day, but I can imagine it being even more time-consuming than having the 72 bettas I now have......I would love to find a Canadian breeder I could "loan" some of my fish to though! I should start buying matching females....lol
