I have a pair but couldn't get them to spawn. The male of the pair was very aggressive and the female got to the point where she wouldn't come out of hiding. I have another male coming. He was supposed to get here a couple weeks ago but the thai transhipper got confused about where he was going. He was supposed to come this week but because of Veterans day the shipment got pushed back again .
I really love this species. There is some debate about their origin. Some people say they're a hybrid, other say their a sub species. I know they inhabit faster moving water unlike other splendens.
I'm glad someone else is wanting to spawn them. If we both get spawns maybe we can swap fish around to keep a good genetic diversity going.

I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

Pitgurl your pair sounds like mine :P I'm sending them to Setsuna because his betta-whisperer breeding method seems to work like magic. That and the change of environment will hopefully help the female not be so skittish. I know the male is ready to breed, he's made 2 bubblenests under his IAL this week and stays near it at all times.

I'm on a 44kps dial-up. Ever since Google bought out U-tube, I can't get it to load.
