Still have lots of fish in grow outs. I went a little nuts on the reds so have a lot of fish coming. If you don’t mind them young I can make you a deal to finish growing them out. Lots of the lighter bodied Cambodian females.. some very nice bicolors. I will be separating some of the traditional Cambodian girls out to get them ready for the shows.. but the rest are available and for sale. Many are breeding these lighter bodied females to get reds without the black layer underneath that also give a black edged scale. The black edging counts against a fish in the shows so that is why the Cambodian based breeding. Here are some of the girls. if interested, just send me an email and we will get you some ready to ship.
The two very large spawns are out of the same female but different males. One is a sibling and the other is a very nice import I have pictured here. Love the great spread on this import and the super sharp edges and branching. I have several nice males already and plenty more coming. Most of the darker bodied ones I will be keeping for the show season but if you are interested in a red butterfly pattern I have three available as well as some lighter bodied males. Here are some of the reds I will be photographing and posting soon.
We have been busy taking pictures and getting fish loaded up on Aquabid. There are several young spawns about 5 weeks that are coming on like gang busters and I need room for them to grow out so the older fish need to go! The brilliant royal blue male to the left here in only one of our metallic males for sale. Check out our fish for sale here.
Photographing bettas takes a lot of time and effort to get a few good shots. We are still playing with lighting and lens settings and seem to have a way to go to get photos I really like. I took a lot of pictures Saturday.. actually spent most of the day photographing fish.. to update our AquaBid auctions and caught this about-face with the camera. Wish it was a bit clearer but it gives you an idea how quickly these fish can move and how difficult those nice shots are to get. Hope to have more fish up for sale next weekend as well as we have a lot of nice fish maturing and I won’t show them all.
We need to make room for upcoming spawns so we are selling some very nice young fish like the male pictured as well as some of the fish we have chosen to breed. This male is maybe 12 weeks old and will continue to mature. He has several nice sisters for sale as well. To see him and our other fish for sale see our AquaBid auctions.
Also on the agenda for the weekend are getting some of our Crowntails photographed and on AquaBid for sale. I will also get then on the web site and post the link. The starting bid will be $14 and the buy now price will be $15. You can add a female for $12 and if you want a nice male and don’t mind some torn fins you can add him for $5. The only fish I will photograph will be the first male. The add ons will be my choice.. and I don’t have time to try to get pics of them. They are all siblings and are Copper Red. Many of the males are showing double double rays.
Update: I did get a couple up on the web site.. check them out HERE. I’m still learning the camera and how to resize the photos for the web.
