My pair of guitar smaragdina come today. Unfortunately there was some confusion with my mahachai pair and they didn't make the last shipment. The seller offered me a refund which I decided to take over waiting another 2 weeks. Right now I think I'm just going to work with one species.

I'm going to condition the pair for 2 weeks and then they'll be going in the spawn tank. I'll keep a spawn log for them. There isn't much info on the guitar strain and you don't see them that often which is why I want to breed them. They are slightly different from the regular smaragdina. They live in moving bodies of water such as streams, they have longer ventrals, they're brighter colored on their fins and the pattern on their caudal is more pronounced.

After hours of observing my wild imbellis i learned alot. Imbellis are much more friendly. Wild bettas likes low light tanks and Males will only chase females but they wont bite them(or maybe its just my pair). They are also much easyer to breed then splendens due to the fact that males wont bite the female till they sometimes die or hurt real bad like splendens. I had my 2 imbellis for only 2 days and the male already have a big nest up unlike splenden males they need to be conditioned and see a female to motivate them to build a nest. I also learned that wild bettas like planted tanks more then regular betta jars. So if you have any wilds plz add some plants to thier tanks they will be much more happy
