Wild bettas are so easily amused. I have been soaking some oak leaves since early this morning and put them into a couple of my tanks. Straight away everyone is down in amongst the leaves having a look and seeing if they are edible.



I have at least 20 fry/juveniles in that tank with mum and dad. I thought there was 12 but I counted this morning and they seem to be taking over. Fry definitely grow a lot faster when they are kept in tank with mum and dad. My ones in the grow-outs are nowhere near as big even though I feed them twice a day and do larger water changes.

Thanks. Dad is wild-caught and nowhere near as colourful as his sons. It also looks to be a very male oriented spawn unfortunately.

How balanced have you been finding the sexes of your splendens complex bettas? Fairly even spread of males/females or skewed more heavily towards one sex?

Darn you! I need more females than males here.

I do wonder with mine if it is water temperature, as the coccina species seem to hail from cooler waters, whereas hobbyists seem to keep them in a slightly higher range.

The tank where the temperature was only 25 degrees seems to have given me a few more females than the tank where the temperature was 28 degrees or so.

I think it's just going to be harder to sell on a whole bunch of males.
