I think many of the wild betta species are quite endangered in the wild. A whole slew of mine are listed as 'critically endangered' and the B. persephone is found in only one or two localities now, both of which are threatened by habitat destruction.

It's very sad to think that one day these species might become extinct as the cost of human progress.

Good on all you guys breeding pure and carefully to preserve endangered wild species! Sad their habitat is being destroyed by humans...but at least other humans can prevent them from going extinct! Blessings on your endeavors!

The more I think I know, the more I think I don't know much at all!

I bet many of you are wondering why I posted this thread in The Show Betta thread...simple...NOTHING out there can match the perfect form of a Guitar Smaragdina or the natural colors of the Stiktos or Mahachai, Setsuna is sending me a very special line that come from a different provence of Siamorientalis, this fish is black and has some irids on it..I am very tempted to spawn him to a superblack plakat female.....I must fight the urge!!

I have several coming as well, Darth. And, I see the natural breeding as something that should be in the show forum. Although I do want to keep mine pure, by province I am curious as to how different colors that show up, from the same province will breed as well. I am fighting the urge and I haven't even got them yet. Setsuna has been so kind as to keep mine conditioning, after they got here to the states. They are coming on MOnday.

I want stiktos however so, I am watching your spawn. I can't get them now from Cambodia, I guess.

Darth, I don't see anything wrong with doing an experimental spawn with a siamorientalis and a splendens, just keep the lines seperate and make sure the buyer understands they are not pure siamorientalis.

Some are from Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Cambodia but mostly found in Thailand

Setsuna how wonderful, thank you. Is there a site where one could read all about them and see photos of where they live? Stuff like that fascinates me.
