I have 3 male bettas ( 2 were rescues from craigslist. A lady had caught kids fighting them - they had seen it on youtube - so she took them and nursed them to health and then put them up for free adoption on CL ) and one little girl I rescued from Walmart the other day


They are the nuts aka blue boys

They are stunning! Great pics. thumbs2:

The little female is a beauty, if you are still going with the nut theme, perhaps you could name her Hazelnut (Hazel for short) or Kukui Nut (Kuk or Kuki for short) LOL.

The last two males I adopted. They had no fins, were a very blah muddy color. I hope one day they can be as full fined as pis.

I am going to venture out there and say that the first betta is some type of delta tail.

does anyone remember those flow charts you had to learn in middle school? if it was this you moved to this box etc.... like they have in the insert in fish meds about how to diagnose a disease. Well I wish they had those things for Bettas.

Dud, you have to breed that first one.... Get a female from aquabid that matches his color and breed him you don't want to waste the amazing quality color......

I've always wanted to breed bettas but was told it's a waste because there are so many bettas around.
