Other betta species

I found this site selling other betta species. Pretty cheap. Thought people might like to look:

They have:


Betta coccina




Betta imbellis (wow)




Betta rutilans





Betta smaragdina




Betta falx (mouthbrooder)




What I'd really, really like to find is Betta albimarginata, another mouthbrooding species:


If I could afford the shipping...

Betta imbellis, Betta falx and the Betta albimarginata I would LOVE... Shipping is a problem!!! I've never seen those before!

Oooo I would REALLY like some of the betta Falx! I think i'll do some research on them!! See how they would do in a 29 gallon tank. Most wild species can live together, males and females!

You know what? I bet some people that live in the same area could split a shipment. One fish or ten, it would probably be the same. I sent them an email and asked about Betta imbellis.

Mark (the guy behind anubiasdesign) is great to work with from what I've heard. I believe he is based out of Florida.

The president of my betta club breeds Falx and a few other spieces. They are really pretty!

I eventually want to get into breeding Picta, Falx, perhaps Albimarginata, and I would KILL to get my hands on a pair of wild Betta splendens. All that is a LONG way off though.

Ooooh, really? Maybe mine could order me some in, since I read they can be kept in groups. This place is good at doing special orders. I should ask and get a quote. Can't afford much, though... :p

Sorry if I repeat any "obvious" info you already know, but I like to cover all the bases, just in case.
