I feel a bit silly now. I went and purchased a pair of burdigala because I thought I only had males. Then I realised I had what appeared to be a burdigala female in with my palangkarensis and my palangkarensis female in with my burdigala males.

I swapped them around but nothing really happened with the burdigala so I thought I must have been wrong again. Well I noticed my female completely coloured up this morning and so I chucked some oak leaves in for my male to hopefully build a nest in.

He has taken the initiative and I believe they are spawning up in there or at least preparing to!! So hoping they are as I would love to get some fry from this species.

Would have preferred they did this beforehand though so I could have at least ordered some coccina instead of another burdigala pair.

Many stores don't stock them or they have to be specially ordered in. They are very much a niche market fish.

I think you mean either Betta albimarginata or Betta channoides. They can be kept in captivity (all the wild species can) and are a fairly easy to care for and breed fish. I always recommend channoides and albimarginata to anyone new to wild species because of this.

Seriously Fish (website) has a lot of information on keeping and caring for the different species. Just type Betta into the search box and it should provide heaps of valuable reading material.
