Got some photos of my persephone fry in the grow-out. Also got two of my unimaculata fry. They are growing extremely fast and I will be moving them out into a bigger grow-out this weekend (there are currently 20 of them in a 3.5 gallon tank).











Looks like I have velvet or ich (never knew what it was exactly) back in a few of my tanks so everyone is getting a big water change and treated.

Unfortunately, this coincides with me getting a new pair of Betta rutilans delivered. I still can't tell whether I have the original female or not so I figured since all their juvenile and adult offspring look male I should probably splash out and get a new pair.

These guys have spawned and I am raising around 15-20 of their fry in a separate tank. Not really my cup of tea, but my mum loves them so I had to purchase a pair for her.












They look prehistoric :3

Which post/photo are you talking about as there are a few different species on this thread?

I would definitely do some research before committing to purchase any wild bettas, particularly if the area you live in has very hard water or you haven't been into bettas that long.


Just saw your latest thread and yes, they look pretty prehistoric haha. They can fit a LOT in those big mouths of theirs. This is one of their fry

The adults are around 10-12cms so quite big compared to the average betta.

The three species in the very first post of this thread are albimarginata, smaragdina and brownorum.

I hope that answered your question.

They don't. Which is why it is very important they are properly conditioned beforehand, and that you do not allow the female to spawn again with them until they have had a couple of weeks to recuperate after spawning.

The females of mouthbrooding species can be very pushy so it is sometimes better to have two males to one female.
