Kris and Sasha of Full Spectrum Bettas have been breeding and selling bettas for just over a year. Kris had been in the aquarium hobby for over 20 years while Sasha was a newcomer to fishkeeping. Kris discovered the world of Southeast Asian bettas through a Facebook Page and became addicted to the bright rainbow colors and high energy not commonly found in the average American pet store betta.
Originally they were just going to be pets but one day we wondered out loud about the possibility of trying to reproduce them. After we researched the market and the how to's of breeding we decided to give it a go. It started small, just an experiment, but has slowly grown into a side business. Inspired by curiosity and the YouTube and Facebook betta communities, our first spawn ended up a success! There was definitely a learning curve but a year out we finally have the hang of it. We raise live food for the fry including vinegar eels, baby brine shrimp, and grindal worms, which are their only foods till they are a couple months old. Watching them grown and change colors has been an absolute joy. The marble genes carried by the "koi" type that we work with manifest differently in each fish and they change colors drastically as they age. We are proud to be producing healthy, unique, hard to find fish at reasonable prices. We hope to bring the same joy and excitement to others as we have experienced working with these little beauties.
