Ouch! Poor man. I hope she didn't give him too much of a complex about yellow females.

Oh goodness! Poor guy!

In your post on the last page, the guys you're working with. The last one, I think he's an EE. He's GORGEOUS! What do you call that color?

lol Little, I hope not! Got a yellow/gold girl coming in from Chard soon that I am hoping to bring out some orange/golds..

Skye- unsure what to call him.. he is a rust/lavender/white. He was so friendly and active at Petco that I just grabbed him lol.. got a couple white/metallic/cellophane girls (one being stingy with her eggs right now) that I am going to pair him with and see what happens. Will have to look for a female that is similar to him to carry on the colors.

Here are some more of Kabuki (the EE boy).. this was after an attempt with one of the cello girls.. when I learned she does NOT like having lights out all the way while in a tank with a male.. so now I keep a dim light on with her in the breeding tank lol. He is such a camera hog! Pictures do him no justice..

And then the red guy.. at least being torn up doesn't deter him from making nests and trying with other girls :)

Camera hog? He's just reminding you how glorious he is, just in case you forgot.

I'm looking forward to seeing some of his offspring

lol true! And me too! I have a couple pairs I want to get going first.. the orange/gold line and a red/gold line.. possibly pink if I can get my virgin girl to give love a chance..
But he will be right after them. I want to make sure his fins are a little more healed first in case the new white cello girl is a fin biter too.

Yeesh your splendens make me glad I only do wild bettas. I was freaking out the other day over a few nips being taken out of one of my male's tail. Your poor male looks like he went through the shredder.

Your yellow/gold female sounds nice. Hopefully she is a little more accommodating! Look forward to seeing how all your spawns progress.

Thank you :) The red guy had some missing fins when I got him.. he's been bred by a few different breeders that I know before I got him. So he's been around town a bit lol.. but my yellow did most of that damage. She's currently waiting to go to her new home with Dramaqueen.

I would love to do wilds, but unsure the popularity of them to sell.. I have a LFS that would buy them, but would like to sell to other fanciers as well.

Getting sent into exile for her misdeeds haha. Sometimes it can be annoying that splendens are so aggressive to the point of being unable to spawn.

Wild bettas can be hard to shift depending on what species you own. Imbellis, mahachai and smaragdina seem to be the most popular as their care and type is fairly close to that of splendens. Macrostoma always seem to be a favourite among collectors as they are quite spectacular fish.

It's generally a very niche market, sort of like killifish. Your market is usually restricted to other enthusiasts rather than the general public.
