Hello!
I'm Tides of Darkness...call me Tide or something.

I have bred guppies and, accidentally, goldfish, at one point... I didn't have a camera at the time, but that was a few years ago.
I am going to try bettas sometime.
So a couple questions before I tell you about myself. After I found a suitable veil male, I read something that said most people these days like bettas with bigger fins. Should I try to get a different tail type??
But also, I have a delta male. Should I try and find a female for him instead? :scratch:

Anyways, I do not feel comfortable telling my age or name or anything...

But... I will say a few things about me.
I get VERY mad when I see fish kept in vases. I get so mad in walmart when I see the fish...I have to ignore them and continue looking at tank stuff.
I like criticism, but not being bashed. A lot of times, I get bashed for things instead of being properly corrected...

Well, questions are welcome! :)

Well hello and WELCOME to UB.

What do you plan for said betta once you get it? Just wondering why you are worried about tail type or finding a female.

I hear you on the bashed thing, I know how that goes all too well.

Anyhow, Welcome again and make yourself at home! :D

I want to start a good pure genetic line of either deltas or veils... preferably deltas.
But if/when I get a female for one of them, I'm going to let her get used to her surroundings and see if she survives (ha, I've had plenty of one-dayers), of course, and see if she and my male like each other; letting them look at each other through glass for a few seconds. <--not saying its the best way, but it's gonna be how I do this.
Then, I'll see about breeding later when I get time...

It's very gratifying whenever someone comes here to do a little research before they buy. Your betta (which you are required by law (UB law) to post pics of when you get him/her) will thank you for your forethought.
