    That's my colony of 25 or B. persephone. One of the males is in my display picture.

    Easiest wilds to keep tend to be the mouthbrooders. Most of the unimaculata complex (excluding macrostoma who are fussier) are extremely low maintenance aside from needing very tight fitting and strong lid. I believe dimidiata, edithae, picta and pugnax complexes are pretty much the same.

    I would say splendens complex also seems to be fairly easy to care for as well as long as the water is on the softer of neutral. I had some imbellis for a while and they were not particularly finicky.

    Hardest complex is the ones I keep. Coccina. Require extremely soft water with very low pH to thrive. Are prone to velvet particularly when young, and seem to have a higher rate of male heavy spawns (irritating when trying to get a sibling pair).

    I was thinking along the lines of hard to care for. While that is the case with some wild species, others are as easy to care for as splendens. And I might put the boring one in as well. I think that links nicely with 'all wild bettas are shy'. I can tell you that most of mine are definitely not boring or shy haha.

    Thanks for the praise. You see a lot of sites dedicated to splendens and their care but not many (still active) that are dedicated 100% to wild bettas.

    Haha thanks. I am currently working on an article for my site titled 'Common misconceptions' in regards to wild bettas. Wondering if you have any to add to my current list of: "All wild bettas ugly" and "All wild bettas are shy".

    Thanks! I got a couple of pics. I'm hoping it will make them take notice, though sadly it probably won't. :( It's worth a shot though!
