A pair of albimarginata would look really cool in there, so long as you get a lid made for it. Similar look but smaller. I'd love to have that tank on my shelves. A little sponge filter on each end, interesting driftwood, and a colored up albimarginata pair? Lovely.

They are great fish. Also excellent jumpers and very strong so make sure there are no gaps for them to get out. The unimaculata complex are notorious for jumping.

Catie, I have the 12 gallon long for my Betta persephone group and it is awesome. They like the low, long shape and it is excellently made. I think albis would be perfect for one.

It seems to be the night for finding connections! I just found a breeder with betta falx. I'm so excited, it's kind of ridiculous. I have Setsuna conditioning an imbellis pair for me and now I've found a falx pair. The hubby isn't amused, but I'm sure he'll cope. I'm glad I put in new shelving to manage the new tanks I'm adding. I've got a 10g going for the imbellis pair and a 5g to house the falx pair, assuming that the pair will need to be separated to control breeding.

Got some updated fry/juvenile photos. Looks like I am going to be selling off a lot of male burdigala. I think my whole wild-caught spawn is male!

Here are a couple Betta uberis fry

I'm getting my new betta imbellis pair this week from Setsuna! This is the male: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBD5YHdLIZc

The falx need to wait for the weather to get a bit warmer. The breeder doesn't have heat packs and the temps aren't going to be consistently warm enough this week. That's okay, that gives me more time to focus on the imbellis new arrivals. I also have scuds arriving tomorrow and I'm sure the wilds are going to go nuts over them.

Hey guys! Just found this thread. :D I used to keep lots of splendens although I never got into breeding them. Kept around 27 with 15 or so being females in a sorority. I never really had the want to raise 100+ fry that would have to be separated so early into single containers. LOL Once I got hooked onto the wilds though it was over. I rehomed all but 1 of my splendens and have only bought 1 since bringing my total splendens to 2.

Opposite of Littlebettafish, I keep/breed only mouthbrooders and don't care much for bubblenesters. I currently own 2 pairs of F1 Betta Albimarginata, 1 pair Betta Simplex, 1 WC pair Betta Midas, and 8 juvie Betta Unimaculata. I have kept Betta Ocellata, Betta Pugnax, and Betta Macrostoma up until a heater malfunction that stressed the whole lot out and brought on columnaris.

Here are some pics of my current fry
