My metallic mahachai.

I visited the local betta shop in USA, Minnestoa and have never seen such a stunning wild betta in this form of color. I purchased him as a pair with another metallic female. I'm very excited and hope to breed them asap!

Very pretty love the spade tail fin on the male ! How long have you been into Bettas and have you ever breed them before ?

I imagine they're phenomenal in person!

Pics can't capture them in full glory.

Thanks, I can remember since I was 11 when I had my first fighting plakat betta. My relatives were betta breeding hobbyists which influenced much on me. I've bred fighting plakats and halfmoon-plakats, but I have never attempt to breed wilds before. Likely it'll be some time that I take to study these wilds before I try. Many say they breed easily and multiply like dandelions, but I've read that some wilds are sensitive to water change, especially the fries.

Sorry, my hands aren't that of a pro pohotgrapher. And yes, the real thing looks a million times better. Hopefully the video made up for it. If only I had pure white light then it would've look awesome.

Nice looking mahachai. I keep getting tempted to get a pair of them when I see photos like yours. The male is absolutely stunning.

I heard that mahachai prefer a little salt in their water as the environment they are found in can sometimes be brackish. I read on another forum that their habitat in the wild was turned into salt pans. Quite sad really.
