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.
