My very first male that I ever bred also placed well :) He also went Reserve Best of Variety (out of 7 in his division).
I was so surprised that we did so well in our first show. I had decided to skip the New Breeder classes and head right into the Open classes, since the New Breeder classes were pretty huge. Glad I made that choice!
Our very first show ever! I sent only 7 bettas, and imagine my surprise when one of my girls swept Reserve Best of Variety Shortfin Female!
