    Thanks LBF. :) I have had a look at her stuff (and a drool)! If you are still breeding wild bettas when I get my own place in a few years, I'll probably harass you again. :p

    Hey LBF, I was just wondering if you still breed splendens. The best petshop around here has closed and I'm not always happy with the quality and conditions of the others. It's also really hard to source bettas through the local club, which seems to view them as boring beginner fish, so I'm just sounding out Australian breeders for future. :)

    Hi! Could you please take a look at my thread called "Betta Imbellis at petstore labeled female" (wont let me post a link)? I have a "female" That resembles a imbellis and "she" has no egg spot. I'm not quite sure what to do and I heard that you kept imbellis :)

    No. Only my wild betta males are ever housed together without dividers. Not my actual splendens.

    Sorry to bother you again, but do you cycle your tanks? Or do you think that 100% changes would affect the wild bettas?

    Just wanted to tell you that I felt that your post in the thread about making this site better was the best post I read. I agree with you completely. You are very insightful especially for your age. I hope you don't mind me saying that :)

    Hey Hallyx.

    I'm not sure which of mine have been wild caught vs tank raised as I purchased all of mine through either my LFS or the Australian transhipper. I'm pretty sure a few of them were wild caught and imported in though.

    Mine do seem to prefer a biotope style tank, and this is where you will find they colour up best in. None of my tanks are planted except for some riccia floating at the top of my albi tank. Instead I use pieces of wood and leaf litter to create hiding places for each fish.

    Activity depends on the individual fish. My rutilans and coccina will nearly tear your arm off at feeding time, whereas my albis are much more subdued and will only eat certain foods. I have an uberis I never see even though I do my best to get it accustomed to me eg. handfeeding and have owned it for nearly two months now.

    My avatar is from a site about biotopes and betta habitats. I just used it because I am a bit of a wild betta aficionado.

    Hello, LittleBettaFish,

    I see by your roster that you're fond of wild Bettas. I think wild imbellis and Albimarginatus are particularly beautiful, as well as Macrostoma.

    May I ask: are yours wild-caught or tank-raised? Do they require exacting water params? Do they need well-planted and equipped tanks?

    If they are as active and behaviorally interesting as they are beautiful, I'd like to consider getting one.

    BTW, your avatar is really intriguing. Is that one of your tanks?

    Thanks for allowing me to PM.
