MMM.. how long apart have you stop keeping bettas?

why revive it now? and when u go straight back into this hobby, the 1st thing
you are looking at is breeding? whats your objective?

do you have a budget in mind to spend and hahaha.. how old are you now?

AF has lots of cheap pickups you can find in the buy/sell. But the time to
go meet your buyers and ultimately bring home the products, u decide if it is
worth the time. 2 x 2ft tank plus stand for $10-20bucks and at times FREE.

I would advice you to pop over Simei (there a shopping there with a pet store), Really scout around Pasir Ris farm and see what you will find there,
or just Tampines area. U should find lots of bettas there and You can fill us in with your answers to your questions too!!!!

I wouldn't recommend going to Pet Safari at Simei. It's true that they have a wide range of fishy products that could be tough to find elsewhere, but prices tend to be somewhat higher (probably due to shopping mall rental), and if you're after bettas, they occasionally have a few good-looking ones, but they aren't in best condition.

Just my two cents worth.

Are you waiting for O level results now? If you are, must be dead bored eh? That's why you're reviving the hobby is it?

Anyway you've got a more than enough budget to get a pair of butterfly HMs.

I just bred a butterfly HM with a veil tail female. Just did it just to experience rearing the fry. Got my HM for 6 bucks at Yun Feng. Not too good, but not shabby either. I suppose with your budget, you could definitely go for something twice the price, and perhaps twice the quality!

She does not have time for betta's anymore and i have stopped contacting her. But sadly, I had to get rid of the betta's that i owned due to my father's wishes. Im still a student,and I have forgotten everything about breeding betta's.
I used to breed betta's to share them with my family and friends.
I have finally decided to start my hobby again,which is to breed betta's.
but sadly,i have no idea how to start it again.

thus, im yearning for help is the prices.
(p,s. i am thinking of breeding them the tradional style,alot of moss and just leave the babies to grow and feed them the food they need when the get bigger.(a.k.a, boon)

I want to ask for some help to get information on how much certain items costs in my checklist. Im thinking of going to Yue Feng in street 81.As i live in tampines and its the nearest.
1)Betta's-halfmoon's are my priority,really love how they look,but i have no idea how much they cost now.So,i need help if they are any butterfly halfmoon males at yuefeng. Female's too.
Get from the forumers is cheaper
2)the java moss - how much java moss do i need for sufficient micro organisms to grow at a quick pace for my soon to be betta fry. and if there are any in str 81. and how long does it take for an ample amount of miro organisms to grow.
Can get free from the forumers. Earlier this year I threw about 3 big NTUC plastic bags of them because no takers
3)a 2ft tank - how much do they cost? at street 81?
Get from the forumers. Some people don't bother to sell and will give away for free.
4)a heater - and again,the cost of one.not looking for those large ones,just simple ones for a 2ft tank.
you dont need 1
5)Chemical to get rid of chlorine in water- how much do they cost nowadays?
can get decent ones at lesser than $10
6)a simple air pump for hatching of BBS. - again,the cost.
get fromm forumers
those are the things that i need to know before i start breeding again. ive read multiple posts in this forum and i just need to know these few things to get it all done.
and thank you to those who are helping me in this process.
A budget of $50 should be enough for all if you want it to be simple

Make him drink more coffee on the day you want to go.
