haha so I'm not the only one window shopping on aquabid today? That is a very nice looking betta and I don't typically care for red fish!

hahaha nope not the only one!!! XD was supposed to be looking up endlers cause Im waiting ffor this one line to come back up. Happened to remember my future betta project: get koi bettas to sell babies here in the US! if only he wasn't so much o.o my personal limit is 100$ including probably 50$ in shipping for that particular project that is. Its usually less haha. And then from there it devolved into looking at females for a sorority lol on the upside the endlers I ordered this weekend should be shipping today :DDD

He is really nice looking betta. I really don't care for betta but that one I would if the price was cut in half x 4.

I wish that were his price!!! Id probably NB him this second and then figure out a tank situation LOL the only thing that bugs me is his fins are clear instead of some color.

Wow beautiful fish for sure. If you had a breeding pair you could recoup your initial investment in no time. Those would be highly sought after and its not like many others would try to breed them. Ive always likes Koi sword tails, but livebearers are pretty easy to get to reproduce and raise so I feel like you would never get your money worth out of that.

Exactly and then lots if they are decent breeders. As far as I have heard they're not being bred here in the US yet, they're all in Thailand.
depends on how many are produced here/quality......I will admit to paying $44 including shipping over this weekend for a total of 6 endlers....but they are fantastic looking and I'm hoping to sell most of the babies at the end of summer XD
That's also why I try to keep an eye on the koi betta going through aquabid. sometimes the stock is really sketchy in being called koi and other times I come across fish that look like this one does <3

Some of these indonesia/thailand bettas go for incredible prices. These ones with the blue, white and orange...they are stunning. I was watching this one...ending bid $269.00....geez

This one was a halfmoon fancy

oh wow that is some massive finnage and sweet coloring XD surprised the plaket only went for 31 with the same coloring style. But I guess for most, the more fins the better. I have better luck with smaller/less fins then massive halfmoons. for me the bigger they are the more likely they are to be damaged Sad
Recently found my big blue/black/silver/purple male will only blow bubble nests when the tank water level is low. Little butthead. To keep the tank properly filtered I have to fill the tank back up and destroy his nest and he won't fix it till the waters super low again. Tank doesn't have a top so the level goes low every couple of days.
