She looks like she's telling him he needs to try harder haha

I don't think I could handle breeding Betta macrostoma. All that anticipation and excitement only for them to swallow the whole mouthful of eggs.

hahaha.. last last week, I have 3 males in the community tank at home brooding. Bravo ate the eggs followed by Charlie.. balance Alpha is holding.. this Tuesday, giant male is holding but he ate yesterday.. as of this morning, Alpha male is still holding and Charlie male holds as well.. lol.. but I forsee only Alpha male will be successfully which I hope so as the last batch he had have already grown to 1inch.

Oh my gosh, what a gorgeous fish! I have never seen the like. If I wasn't content with my 2 Splendens, I'd want one of those. Of course, I have nowhere near the time to try and breed... But wow. Congrats!

XD One pair is close to $200 on Aquabid. Lucky you got them to breed! Hope they spawn!

The Males~
Lucifer, Gabriel, Titan, King, Finnegan, Fin-again & Ricky.
Lucifer & Gabriel are my only non-rescues...

The Females~

thanks.. you should try but they need cool water for long term.. 20-26degC. I am lucky to know a Brunei friend who is specialised in Macrostoma.. all my macrostomas are from him.

thanks.. yes. they are costing 200-250usd a pair.. given the right condition, they outlive the splenden and they can be housed together as well provided you have a bigger tank and some hiding spaces.

well, I wasn't able to some 13years ago.. I am sure you will. its the equipment that is more expensive. chiller, tank canister etc. but once you get it.. you will realise your 200 dollars are well spent.
