Without a doubt. There was a perfect mate for her up from the same seller I was going to look into the pair but now that I look back in the posts lilnaugrim was interested before me.

If you win her, lilnaugrim, you have to take lots of pics!
I am known for taking obscene amounts of pictures! lol

Someone else is bidding on her right now but hopefully I want to try to steal her back next Tuesday before her auction is up. I don't want to start a bidding war right now but I'm also afraid that someone else not on the forum is going to start a war

I just love this fish. He doesn't ship to Canada, I have three already and am in the process of trying to purchase three heaters but there's just something about this one. And I already have the perfect name. Unfortunately looks like he will be the one that got away

That's a Betta brownorum. I have kept them in the past and they are a challenging fish. They require super soft and acidic water (think pH around 5) and are not friendly like splendens are.

I know you said you couldn't get one (I think they just use a generic picture if this is Wetspot selling 'him'), but they are sort of a species I would not recommend for a first time wild betta keeper.

Here's my previous male

The closest to a blue Cambodian dragon that I've seen. He's gorgeous.

You know I never once thought to research them. Thanks for sharing your knowledge of them and for the photo. You had a really neat fish. I kinda wondered about the temperament, we nicknamed him "scrappy" and you are right on about the seller. You've made me feel a little better about not being able to get him. Guess I will stick to the "pretty boys" until I become more experienced.

They are a lovely fish, but very different from splendens. I rarely saw mine except for an hour or so a day when they would come out from hiding.

Wild bettas are amazing fish though. There are so many species (I think around 70) that there is something for everyone.

If you ever do become interested in keeping wild bettas, the IBC Species Maintenance Program (SMP) Facebook page is a great place to start.

Wilds are so hard to get in Canada.
