it: Dreamcatchers are striking. So striking one would spend years
trying to produce more. Elusive, hard to produce, beautiful, a dream
come true, the black bettas with white butterfly pattern are one of
my three favorites. If I can get 10 a year I am happy. Needless to
say these very rare bettas do not sell cheap. They will also throw
solid blacks and marbled blacks, so it is a fun strain to work with.
And when you do get one black/white BF, it makes all the hard work
well worth it!
I've picked Dr. Gene Lucas brains trying to figure
out ways to make it easier to get more black/white BF, but neither
of us could do it LOL. So the hard way it is.
Dreamcatchers are sturdy, easy to spawn, but the
pattern is elusive, so it is a lot of hit and miss. Females are
usually solid black or may be slightly marbled.
Because they are rare, and sought after, they are
pricey. So maybe not the best choice if you are a beginner (unless
you have lots of dough to spend on bettas, that is ;) ).
Many specimens display a beautiful piebald (flesh
colored face / head) pattern as well, but not all do. Regardless, a
beautiful strain to pursue and immortalize, a beautiful dream to
