I appreciate the culture so much! I do have one going but I don't know how good it actually is but a new fresh batch will be good to have!
Yes it is hard when I don't know their background, all I know is they are Thailand imports that I purchased through the Mn Betta Shop. If I were to get fry that looked like both of the parents I would be very happy :) I love that look of marbled HMPK's.
Also I have a DIY sponge filter but want to just go out and get one from a LFS, can you suggest any local places for me to check out?
