My Wild Bettas

Figured I would post some pictures of my wild bettas that I am currently breeding. All of these bettas have spawned and given me fry or are in the process of about to give me fry. I also have one other species of wild betta but they are juvies and I have had a hard time nailing them down to get a real good pic. :p

Betta Simplex -- Male



Betta Simplex -- Pair



Betta Simplex -- Female




Betta Midas -- Female



Betta Midas -- Male




Betta Albimarginata -- Smaller Male



Betta Albimarginata -- Bigger Male



Betta Albimarginata -- Dominant Female



Betta Albimarginata -- Non Dominant Female

LOL The pile of thawed brine shrimp. She is "hoarding" it from the non-dominant female.

Nice fish. I have a soft spot for Betta albimarginata as I used to keep them a while ago. They have such an adorable expression.

What are your juvenile species? I see you are a fan of mouthbrooders.

Moonshadow -- I do sell my betta albimarginata juvies when they get to be about 3 months old. I currently have 3 spawns growing out that total out to about 80 between all 3. I have some that are coming to selling age here real soon (they just turned 2 months old), I have some that just turned 1 month old, and the last spawn just turned 2 weeks old. My big male just spawned again yesterday so I will have more in about 3 weeks to grow out. LOL

LittleBettaFish -- I adore the mouthbrooders. I prefer them over the bubblenesters any day although there are some wild bubblenesters that are pretty cool. The juvies that I currently have are betta unimaculata. I have 8 of them at the moment and the biggest ones are around 2 1/2 -3 in size right now. Hoping to be able to sex them soon and pick myself a pair(or reverse trio) and then sell the rest. I got them by trading with a fellow wild betta breeder.

Ooh I have Betta unimaculata. I have 12. 11 juveniles (well nearly adults now) and their father.

They are my favourite of the unimaculata complex. Even over macrostoma. They just have such a dog-like personality and a very endearing expression.

Hopefully you get your trio/pair. That's the worst bit. Waiting until everyone is big enough to sex and hoping you got what you want.

Wild bettas are defiantly something I will get into in the future. I'm especially interested in albimarginata... Just something about them. There is no denying that captive bred splendens are remarkable, but wilds are pure, simple, and amazing. Beautiful fish you have!
