Wild Imbellis Breeding Log

this is my log for my wild caught imbellis pair. i just introduced the female(also caught from the same source)into the breeding tank with him. Wild imbellis will only have full color and comfortable to spawn if the tank has plants and deco inside. I learn this by observing and experience i also learn that ever betta species mahachai, imbellis, show bettas ect... the male will attack the female no matter wat. Sometimes depending on the aggressiveness if the male. i tryed putting the male imbellis in a jar with IAL for conditioning but his color had faded untill i put him in the big 10g tank with plants and deco his colors came back. He started building his nest after 1 hour of introducing female to him. I am also breeding another pair of imbellis too. This pair is second in line. I will take pictures or videos of the spawning session if im there that the right time

This is the video of the conditioning pair

SQUEEE I am going to haunt this thread. I want a pair of Imbellis so bad, they are so beautiful.

And my male betta would have been all over that lazer pointer. xD his favorite game is chase the strange red dot.

this s a video showing my wild imbellis pair spawning after a few hours of introducing the female to the male. Wild Bettas are by far the best bubble nest makers. this male imbellis made a big nest in a few hours and spawned right away as for other male bettas would take a day or two to get a good decent bubble nest. This bubble nest was under a IAL

WOW that is an impressive nest. My boy doesn't even build bubble nests but it's okay, he's just a pet anyways so he has no need for it. When I get my wild pair he better build some impressive nests though.
