Ya the pic is kinda fuzzy but it gets the point across, so far my count is just over 40, which is not to bad for these bettas first spawn, and plus the first part when the egg yoke went bad i wasnt home to clean the tank so i assume these are strongest fry, which is good

okay so i just wanted to ask if anyone has ever bred wild bettas before like betta strohi (mouthbrooder), or betta macrostoma (mouthbrooder), betta brownorum (bubblenester), or betta imbellis(bubble nester)? Because at the end of the month my fish store is going to be getting a transhippment in from singapore, and some of these wild bettas are on the list and i have done some extensive research on these bettas and i look forward to breeding them. I was just curious if anyone has had any experience any of these types. Thanks

I've heard of those types of bettas but don't know anyone who has bred them. It would be pretty cool to breed them.

If you look on google they pretty cool, i have a few books, that so them and i was doing some research on them and then i found that i could get them from this transhipment, so i am going to breed them they are quite easy to breed plus they dont eat there young so i will get more fry from a spawn and several can be in a tank at a time, so breeding them will be so much easier

I don't think they are as aggressive as betta splendens, are they?

not all mst can live with each other and they produce spawns together and all the parents gaurd the spawn its kinda cool the only thing is i need to get a RO system and filter my water through peat because i need a ph of 4-5.5 for most of those bettas so alot of work for water but it will be worth it. The bubble nesters that i mentioned are aggressive towards each other with the exception of the imbellis they are very peaceful, i will post pics when i get them!
