When I saw him, I just had to have him. A LFS imports bettas from Tailand, and I got there the day they were delivered.

About the bubble nest, there is a picture in the IBC 2012 calendar of fry being spit to the surface with no bubble nest. Never heard of it before, but since my fry are now a week old and free swimming, it didn't hurt them.

Wow I wish we had a store around here who sold decent bettas. That'd make buying off Aquabid a little less tempting!

That's very interesting! I wonder why that happens.

I don't really know. I conditioned him, he build a little bitty bubble nest, and before I knew it, they were spawning! Since his nest was so small, I expected him to build it up once they were done.

Yes, but of course it depends on how many make it to adulthood.

The female's color was the closest I could find to his. Female malanos are known to be sterile.
