Here's a couple of photos I took from today. Sorry about the lighting in some, it's very overcast here so I had to turn the house lights on. I only got a few because the camera died.

This is of my planted sorority. The plants in there are riccia and milfoil.





Here's a shot of my Betta coccina. They are a wild type of betta that inhabit peat swamps and can live in a pH as low as 3-4.



Finally here's a shot of my semi-scaped HMPK tank. The plant in there is Rotala sp. green. It's still establishing itself so it looks a bit pale and weedy.



I can take some of my breeding rutilan pair once their tank clears up (it got a complete overhaul yesterday) and of my breeding pair of albis once my male releases his fry and stops hiding.

I sharpened the edges on the photos because I thought it looked nicer, but tell me if you don't like it as I saved the originals.

No problems. My sorority is like a pirahna swarm so I usually get a few okay photos of them as well as a bunch of betta-shaped blurs. My wilds are nearly impossible to catch darn things.

Yeah I love my wild bettas. Just shelled out two-hundred dollars for two different pairs imported in from Indonesia. Fingers crossed they breed, though my track record is pretty good with them. Way easier than splendens, plus you can house them together.

Oh really? I'm not very familiar with Wild Types. Maybe I should throw an entry about them in this site. Specifically, detailing the major differences.

Okay so everyone has been really helpful with my betta site, it's coming along so nice. The articles included so far:

-Getting your new fish
-Betta Homes
-New Tank Additives
-Introducing your New Betta
-Feeding
-Type's of Betta's
-Plants
-Breeding
-Disease/Illness
-Medicines
-Betta Companions
-Mixing Betta's; Sororities and exceptions
-FAQs

And I'm thinking of adding a section just on wild types, since they're a bit different. Input would be awesome :)

Anything anyone else would like to see? And I'm still eagerly seeking tail type pics. Thanks to awesome people on here I have a few, but not many.
