Jim has been involved with tropical fish since he was a kid in England, but took up breeding in the mid nineties. He centered around South American Cichlids - Green Terrors, Blue Acaras, Convicts and Firemouths. To be successful in creating an environment to raise young gave great satisfaction!
Four years ago he was in a pet store, saw his first Crowntail, promptly googled bettas and was hooked from that day forward. He had only ever seen the standard blue or red veil tail before then, so the explosion of colour and form had him sold!
After initially working with a limited supply of CTs and Fancies in a cupboard, he has recently moved and has set up his first functioning fish room. HMPKs are his main focus (dragon in particular) although he does have CTs, Fancies and DTs. His HMPK project will be under way very soon and of course will be up for view here!
