Setsuna, that is a beautiful tank! Were you dosing with ferts before the CO2 system was set up? How much does a paintball CO2 canister cost, and how often does it need to be replaced?

I headed over to Petsmart on my lunch break and bought a 40 gallon breeder. I have no idea where to put it, I have no stand. I'm hoping I can find a used TV console or something tonight. Otherwise I have all the supplies I need already.

Yea, i had the ADA soil first then slowly add new plants as i went along. Then i decided to add a CO2 system. the CO2 tank/bottle cost me 30 at walmart to fill it cost me 5 dollars as for how long it will last me im not sure yet because this is my first time using it so i'll let you know when it runs out im guessing maybe one month or so only because i have a 20gal tank and i run the CO2 day and night.

So wat are you planning to do with your 40? make it a planted community?

I am so happy. My new hendra pair are spawning! I thought they needed more cover and just got some java fern today and I come home and they are in their film canister with a bunch of eggs.

Of course the female sees me and comes rushing out thinking she is getting fed and then realises she is in the middle of something and goes back to the male.

Well I don't want to disturb them while they are spawning just because it is the male's first time.

However, this was the most recent set of photos I got of the pair the other day.









I don't know why this species isn't more popular over there as it is so beautiful. I have noticed some sellers still call them palangkaraya rather than hendra.

Also my stiktos pair are spawning AGAIN. They have no shame those two. Right up front, stop to eat and say hello and then they just get right back into it.

I have no idea how many fry I actually have from this pair. I only think maybe a handful of older ones. I do have a lot of ones from their previous spawn swimming around but the numbers usually start to dwindle as I don't raise them out of tank.

Haha. A little 'green' with envy :P

Yeah I am assuming like most of the undescribed species, they were originally named for their locality.

I have a possible new species of coccina complex wild known as Betta sp. apiapi by the seller that I am keeping and which I have bred. Be really cool if it does turn out to be a new species and not just a variation/different locality of an existing one. I think it might be based on its appearance but it takes them so long to recognise species.

There is still that sp. wajok floating around that looks very similar to rutilans sp. cf. green that has never been described.
