How are your fry going Setsuna? I am interested in comparing the growth rate of the different species/complexes.
So far I have found that my bigger mouthbrooding fry (unimaculata, strohi) are growing at a much faster rate than my coccina complex fry (persephone, rutilans, tussyae). This is in the same conditions and being fed the same foods.
Just wanted to see how imbellis compared. Also have you ran into any problems with missing ventrals? This seems to be a solely splendens based issue as even when my wild fry were on MWs for several weeks and I was lax on vacuuming their tank, hey all developed normal ventral fins. I have yet to have any of my wild betta fry show up with missing ventrals.
