Oh the Orbs are the WORST! They're ridiculous to clean, you can't see the fish most of the time. I hate, hate, hate them!

All VTs, but a reasonable range of colours - the usual blues and reds, but also when I was there yesterday there were Dalmatians, cellophanes and some dark purply blues (almost black) with red fins.

On occasion they will have a single SD but they're usually so chewed up from jumping the dividers in the rubbish betta barracks that you couldn't tell one tail type from another. Females are always plentiful and in good health, but not a vast range of colours.

KJ, we don't have any female bettas over here. I've considered doing a sorority in the past but stocking it would be quite costly because I would have to buy online from breeders etc. I've only ever seen 1 female and my mam took her home because she was in a tank being tortured by a male VT.

My fave LFS has a good range of males - mainly VT, HM, CT, HMPK, Giant, Rosetail. Never seen a DT in the shops here. They only seem to have bog standard pk females in, although a local breeder did give them some HM females.

Good range of colours too, even the VT's are pinks, cambos, MG etc. Had a few black HMs a while back

At the LFS in my area they started selling a variety of males over the last several months. I can buy VT, CT , HM , Delta , HM King (Petco Giants), regular or non HM Kings, Plakat and HMPK, DT, HMDT. They only sell VT and CT females. Hex=4, Rectangular=16

The only females I've seen here are Vt's and CT's. Doesn't make for a versatile
sorority does it now? I'm disappointed to say the least.......! Maybe in time.

They had a gorgeous Blue Marble Halfmoon last year that I wanted but didn't have the money at the time. I went back the next week when I had money but it was gone. This year I was pleasantly surprised with Blue Marbles and Green Marbles from my Blue Butterfly spawn.

How old are they? I wish I wasn't so broke at this time(or anytime) or I'd
look to order a couple. Its the shipping that throws me the most. I'll certainly
be in contact when I have the funds and see whats available.

I've seen several on Aquabid from your stock and do like what I see!

If you are interested in the Marbles or Butterflies I have about 60 that are a little over 2 months from the same parents as those two. They wont be ready for 2 months or so anyway. I also give a discount to forum members.

Fantastic! I'll see what I can put together by then. I always try to buy myself
a xmas present, or two and maybe three! LOL!

I do need to start researching the genes so I understand it all. Are there any links you recommend for free reading?

There is some in the genetics thread on here. There are other Betta forums, I don't want to name names but Victoria with the web site Bettysplendens has loads of articles on genetics.
