Thought I'd share some of my favorite Bettas of the past 5 years. Just click on the picture of the Halfgiant Grizzled Halfmoon.

I'd say 95% of those pictures were raised by me. A few are males I purchased at a pet store for breeding purposes.

That is an amazing aload of bettas. It must've taken ages to breed them at that standard

Yes I know but it still would take a lot of time to get them there and grown up that much

All from pet store stock and the original females were all Veiltail or Crowntail. I could not find any Halfmoon or Halfmoon Plakat females anywhere. I'd look for a female with a few three or four ray branching and after the first year and a half through selective breeding I had females that I could spawn and they would give me Halfmoons.

Halfmoons are awesome. I had one once, but he died. I hope to get another one soon, because I love halfmoons.

Angelclown, I have had halfmoons, plakats, veiltails, delta tails, crowntails, and halfmoon doubletails, and none have beat betta imbellis. IMO, petstore splendens are nothing compared to the wild type bettas. especially imbellis.
