Do you see what I see?



I pulled out the big log since the male was hiding in it constantly and the female just wasn't going to fit in there with him. Took that out, added some floating leaves, and gave everyone a good feed of bloodworms. When I came back from dinner, I found the big bubble nest and the two of them actively flirting. The female isn't entirely on board with him yet. She's colored up and flirting back, but her attention wanders off. Hopefully they'll be more focused now. Everytime she wanders off, the male gets back to work on that nest. She's not swooning? Clearly the nest needs to be bigger!

He's so cute.

I know palangkaraya are sometimes sold under the name 'palangkarensis' because I have a pair of them and that is what they were sold as.

However, not sure where you would find them overseas. I haven't ever seen them really advertised on AB or anywhere else. Maybe try AquaticQuotient. I know that site has a section for bettas and it is comprised of mostly overseas members. One of the members for sure has palangkaraya.

Wetspot in America is coming up with some in stock. Not sure if you wanted to take that route. Pairs are easy to identify with this species. Unlike others of this complex so they may be able to source you a pair.

Cool. Are they for you? They are nice species. The colouring on the males is really awesome.

They are also really really prolific.

Ah. They are definitely gorgeous fish. It's good you have a contact like that though! I think a lot of wild betta keepers would be jealous.

Stirred a few of my fish up with a mirror today. These are all juveniles bred by me. Have so many male burdigala I am going to have to sell a lot of them off.




My favourite. I think he has a couple of sisters in with him which would be good.



I am seriously debating about tearing down my wild betta set-ups and getting them re-organised. Think I might keep everyone in buckets for a couple of days and get their tanks sorted. It's such a big job though.

However, I hate how everything looks at the moment. I want a nice clean rack with flaps so I can hide all my equipment and lights. Plus velvet is still lurking in a couple of my tanks and I wish it would just die already.

The trouble is I don't want to go too simple as then I never see anyone because they are all plastered to the sponge filter hiding from view.
