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
