I do have a question though, how do you distinguish stiktos from other species? Someone from the Australian Wild Betta Facebook page wanted to know and I wasn't really sure as they don't seem to have an actual species description.

That would be great.

They spawned before the first batch of fry even became free-swimming. The male is really gentle and doesn't mind his female sharing a tank with him.

This is her here in breeding dress

Yeah. I was surprised by how nice she colours up, as I always thought the splendens comples females rather drab in comparison to something like my coccina females.

She is a little shy but slowly warming up to me. She doesn't bother the fry at all either which is good. I am aiming to get maybe 12 or so fry reared to adulthood from these first few spawns as I am rearing the fry naturally in the tank rather than in a traditional grow-out.

NICE!!!!!!you'll notice that the frys wont fall into the ground unlike domestics. wild males seem to take much care of their frys

Yay for Macrostoma!! :D Glad to see you got some Setsuna. Are they wild caught or captive bred? Pretty male!

Skye -- that is a nice amount of fry for a first spawn. Congrats!!

LBF -- your stiktos are very pretty fish and possibly one of the prettier of the splendens complex.

As for me....I have finally gotten a pair of pallifina. I am soo excited to get them as I have wanted them for a long time. They are still quite small but are very nicely colored.
