Hello everyone! I'm absolutely new to the site and taxidermy, so please bear with me if I mess up. I've been keeping fish for quite a while, and I'd like to preserve my pets once they die. I've only had one die in 4 years, but since their lifespans aren't much more than 4-5 years, I want to start planning taxidermy for my bettas. I've been searching around as best I can to find a solution, but it looks like it may be impossible to preserve such a small fish without losing the color. The only thing I've found that might work is freeze drying, but I'm not sure if there are any places for freeze drying in the Atlanta area. I know someone preserved theirs in hot glue, but I don't see that working out long term. I've seen several jarring methods, but they all lose their color, and the color is the main thing I want to keep. I have everything ready for gyotaku prints for some of my larger fish, but my bettas are so small I'm not sure it would work, and it definitely wouldn't preserve the color I want. So basically I'm looking to see if it's even possible to preserve such a small specimin and it's color. Thank you in advance for reading and any suggestions!
