I never seen Dals around here. I really want another one. I'll just have to wait and see what my tank space is like the near future.
@Lastbook... If you can get a hold of some plastic bags like ziploc bags I would put the fish in those. Just catch the top so the bag is "fat" with air and then close it (don't blow air into the back unless you have an air pump). That just helps because they have soft sides of the bag instead of the hard plastic sides of the cup.
If not just make sure they have lots of air and are kept in the dark and you should be fine.
Aw, I think she's beautiful! I have always liked the wild types of bettas, and her confirmation and color is a sell for me! Send her my way if you can't stand her any longer, ha ha! *chuckles* I kid, though. In seriousness, I think she is a gorgeous fish. :) The longer body feels like a nice proportion compared to the more stubby females of B. splendens. I also love those spots on the anal fin close to the body.
