Have you ever seen this betta fish?
It is very fantastic betta fish because of it's color. Wow!! What amazing fish.
This fancy halfmoon plakat is breeded by a breeder from Thailand...He is called "bitongbetta".
His actual name is Mr.Sukit ...a breeder who lives in Rayong , Thailand. He is a famous fancy betta fish breeder.
Mr.Sukit has a lot of amazing fancy halfmmon plakat color. I think the best of his fish is this fish... Let's see it's pictures.
How do you think about this fish??
It is 1 of Million.
I will try to show you more his amazing fancy betta fish later.
Now I have finished a lot of jobs and have enough free time to share my experience on betta fish again. This month I am a bit unhappy with my betta fish business. I cannot sell a lot of my fish haha!.
But that's all right!! I am still love to feed betta fish and love to share useful information to you forever.
Today I would like to share how to develop betta fish to be a very beautiful fish.
For example , my target is "FANTASTIC WHITE HALFMOON PLAKAT"
My old white hmpk color's blood is not good enough.
I want to make pure white color hmpk with big finnage and over halfmoon form.
The first thing that I must prepare is WHITE HALFMOON MALE and WHITE HMPK FEMALE because their children's color will come from their father and their body will similar to their mother.
These are the fish (pair) that I choose for breeding ( I choose double tails halfmmon male because I cannot found halfmoon at that time)
If you choose the female is HALFMMON ..not HMPK , you will get their children nearly 100% long fin specie.
With this method...In the first generation , I get 20% hmpk ,40% halfmoon and 40% delta.
This is a picture of delta that I get in the first generation.
In the second generation , I choose white male and female hmpk form from the first generation which have cleanly white color and breed them (this called "IN BREED")
I got about 70% hmpk from the second generation.
And yeah!! I do the same in the third generation. I get this male...
This is my way to develop betta fish to be more beautiful fish than the present.
So sad but this is the end of this post.
Let's see growth of betta fish together.
But these pictures cannot use as standard because some blood or colors has a bit quickly growing rate or a bit slowly growing rate than these pictures.
After they hatch from eggs...
When they are 3 - 10 days old , I feed them by...
disperse chicken red egg in water
When they are 10 days old , brine shrimp or water flea is the best food for them.

When you choose the best male and female for breeding already and have follow my advice about tips for breeding betta fish.
The next step is put both male and female together into spawn tank. Today I have some hidden pictures during their spawning process and I would like to show it to you.
After 1-2 nights , Your bettas will...
Yeah!!! The male....the female ,and a lot of eggs are dropping from the female's stomach. The male will loosen and hug , loosen and hug...loosen and hug the female until all of female's eggs come out.
Each loosen and hug , the male will looking for eggs and keep them up into his bubble nest (air bubble which on the top of water)
When the male finished breeding process , you can see a lot of eggs on his air bubble nest.
And this is their children after the breeding process finished ,they hatch within 2-3 days.

Today is a very good day!!
Hehehe...I want to show how to prepare water for betta fish. Let's see it together.
I prepare water for betta fish with this 30 gallons plastic tank.
And I usually add a little salt into water for betta fish. !! A little salt only. For 30 gallons of water, I add salt about... Let's see the picture.
Yeah!! 30 gallons of water...just add salt about the above picture. That's enough!!
The last component is...
Indian Almond Leave. Only one big size leave for 30 gallons of water.
For Indian Almond leave , you can add 2 , 3 , 4 , 5... leaves but I add only 1 leave because the color of water will change to a little yellow which I can see my betta fish's natural color. If the color of water change to dark yellow or brown , I cannot see my betta fish's natural color.
Then add tap water to the tank until full of tank. Add salt into the water and put Indian Almond Leave into the water. Leave it at least 1 day and pull Indian Almond Leave out of water tank. Now you can use this water for your betta fish but the better way is wait another 24 hours because all of clorine will evaporate.
I usually prepare water for my betta fish with this solution and replace betta fish's water 2 times per week.
NO DISEASE , NO FISH ILL...THEY ARE ALL HEALTHY AND ACTIVE. HAHAHA!!!!

I usually add a little salt when I prepare water for betta fish. Salt can reduce stress of betta fish and increase ion to tap water. The best ratio when you add salt to water for betta fish is 1 ppm - 3 ppt. (1 ppt = 1 g / 1 liter of water and 1 ppm = 1g / 1 ton of water)
Salt also reduce disease growing rate. Betta fish live in a backwater so it is great if you add a little salt into it. Salt can protect them from disease.
When I send fish to my customer who live in other countries , I never forget to add a little salt into betta fish's water.
Yeah!!!! SALT REDUCE BETTA FISH' S STRESS. HALFMOON SPECIES WILL BITE THEIR FIN IF THEY ARE VERY STRESS!!!!

Indian Almond Leave is know as a herbal medicine for all types of aquarium fish for a long time.
They are known to have antibacteria and antifungal properties.
Betta fish is known to be induced to spawn by just putting a few of the leaves into their tank. Fish suffering finrot or injuries (such as spawning injuries) or sickness will definitely benefit from having the leaves in their quarantine tub. They also can be used for the usual aquariums too.
Indian Almond Leave has an important chemical which call "Tannin". Tannin is benefit for all types of aquarium fish. It reduce pH of water to a little acidic which in range 6-6.5 so this is the reason that Indian Almond Leave has antibacteria and antifungal properties. Disease is difficulty growing at this pH range.
Yeah!! Indian Almond Leave also has properties in the treatment betta fish from sickness.
You can use Indian Almond Leave as medicine for betta fish by follow this instructions:
1. When soaked in water these leaves will leach a strong brown dye that is full of organic acids like humic acids and tannic acids. These may be useful for inhibiting many types of bacteria as well as to detoxify harmful heavy metals found in the aquarium.
2. Put the sick fish into this prepare water.
You also can use Indian Almond Leave for the healthy fish ,too. Just add some Indian Almond Leave water into the healthy fish's tank. This will protect your fish from disease and keep them still healthy. I usually take care my betta fish with this solution.
