Are they two new pairs of imbellis or of another species?

I can't remember if you have or were trying to locate some pure Betta stiktos. Have you had any luck in that regard? They are a nice looking fish but seem pretty hard to find in 'pure' form.

I reckon wild-caught bettas are pretty easy to acclimatise and settle in as long as the conditions in your tank are good. I've never had any issue with settling wild-caught bettas in or getting them conditioned to spawn.

The new ones that im getting is a pair of imbellis (again just love how they way they look) and a pair of mahachaiensis. I was supposed to get a pair of smaragdina and a male splenden (wild type)but i told my friend thats too many bettas at one time so i told him to send me the mahachaiensis and imbellis first then send the other pair next shipment

Haha I know the feeling. Wild bettas are so addictive. I was only going to order one pair recently and then I ended up ordering three so now I have to scramble to get tanks set up for them.

Then being the prolific little buggers that they are they go and have a batch of fry just as you fill up your last tank.

We apparently got some nice, pure looking imbellis into the country from Hermanus in Indonesia. The ones available through the wholesalers and even some imported in from Thailand have been pretty average.

It's funny how usually if you get into wild bettas there is a certain complex that you are drawn to. Babystarz seems to be mouthbrooders, you seem to be splendens and I am coccina. Luckily there is so much variety within the one genus.
