Hello all

We need some space in the jarring area, and we are trying to figure out how many fish need to go to the LFS, how many we keep, how many we groom for breeders and so on etc etc.

Because this was a cross of two unrelated fish, we've ended up with quite a range of fish and tail types, and as lovely and healthy as they all are, some are just not good breeding prospects. They are, however, very lovely for pets. We have males and females, and if you want fish that have not been jarred yet for a community environment, now is the time to say so

Are there any people here who are after coppers or red dragons as pets?

EXAMPLES




(If you are after breeding pairs from this spawn, they'll be ready to go soon)

For animals, the entire universe has been neatly divided into things to (a) mate with, (b) eat, (c) run away from, and (d) rocks.

I am sooo tempted..


Before you criticize someone walk a mile in their shoes. That way you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

Ok, just a heads up that I'm able to ship these and the next shipment will be heading out on the 31st August.

Pet quality fish are $5 each and east coast shipping is $20 (fish are double bagged, wrapped, and sent in a poly box via courier). Sorry, i can't do WA or TAS at the moment.

These guys are pet quality because either they are not showing desired tail traits or they are showing some other sort of show fault. The fish themselves are shiny, robust and healthy, the only hiccup would be that if you breed them, you won't end up with anything more than shiny fish.


I'm happy for local pick up for Sydneysiders. :-)


Additionally, there are black plakats available for $35/pr. These ARE breeding quality, most males go 180*, females have blunt anal fin, sharp edges and breeder-type bodies. Pictures coming soon.

Last chance at these guys. :-)

Leftovers are going to the Sydney Splendens Society raffle and the Sydney Killi Group raffle. If you want to try your luck there, you'd be more than welcome

Those are beautiful bettas Callatya! I wish you the best of luck in placing them! I've never seen bettas like that. Are the pictures you showed of females?

The bottom one is female, the top two are juvenile males.

Ah, OK. Thank you. I've just never seen males with such short fins and tails. I'm assuming they'll grow longer as they get older? Anyway, they are very beautiful!

some of them do, but the word "plakat" is used to describe short finned fancy bettas, so most of the males in this batch look very similar to the females, except for longer ventral fins and a slight body shape difference.

Oh, OK. Thank you. I was thinking that "plakat" was referring to a different type of fish.
