Few pictures of my fish having fun after water changes.

Thanks Royal, Logisticsguy and Fenghuang, you can't see the label in the picture properly, but it is a wild-caught Betta brownorum. They are known for the big green spots on their sides.

Oh! I completely missed the label... Viewing the thread on my phone. I love their look. The contrast between the brilliant blue-green and the rest of their body is very cool. Thank you for sharing your wonderful fish with us.

He is a beautiful fish, but in the sin bin at the moment with refusing to spawn.

It is not a complex that gets much love since they can be difficult to keep. But I think they are truly some of the most beautiful species out of all the bettas.

They are definitely beautiful. Maybe later on in my life, when I have much more experience, I'll try to keep a pair... Though I'm hesitant to import fish, especially wild caught ones. Do any breeders sell captive bred ones? I would hate to take anymore of these fish out of the wild, especially after hearing how endangered some are, and then have them suffer the ordeal of being bagged and shipped halfway around the world. I've seen pictures of wild-caught bettas for sale. One seller had fish that just looked painfully skinny.

Most wild-caught bettas I have seen in pictures look skinny. I think they are usually pretty skinny and beat up when they get pulled out of the wild. Some of my wilds were pitifully tiny when I got them and now they are much bigger.

Most of these fish are endangered because of habitat destruction rather than overfishing so it is good to have them in the hands of hobbyists to keep their numbers secure.

Also many species can be found as captive bred stock. You just have to know where to look (I am not sure where that would be in America sorry).



Also because this is the picture thread. Here is the same male flaring.

I see. It would be really sad if these fish were no longer around... Thank you very much for taking the time to answer my questions. Sorry if I was annoying. :D

Can I just mention again how much I love the look of your setups? So natural.
