I would love to have a pair of wild bettas, but I would rather save my limited space for my rescues.

What did happen to Min (that was her name wasn't it?) Djembekah?

Just doing water changes on all my wild tanks. It's times like this I realise how many fish I actually have haha. I have to have at least 80-100 permanent residents plus any fry growing out.

I think the main reasons more people aren't raising wilds are common misconceptions, lack of information, and cost.

This forum is the only place that I have seen/heard of wild bettas being sold.

I would love to raise wilds, but I just don't have the funds for it. xD

They're so interesting though

poor fishie

I want a pair of wild bettas but I would need to have them shipped which would make it very obvious what was in the package. And that would result in yet another fight with my mother about my fish. I can only get ones locally that I can sneak into the house via my bedroom window.....if she dosent know I am doing it, I get away with it
