    I only keep the coccina complex species nowadays. I have successfully bred all the described species and most of the undescribed ones. I have kept some of the larger mouthbrooders (unimaculata/ideii/strohi/macrostoma) and some of the smaller mouthbrooders (albimarginata/channoides), but my real love is for the small red ones :) It's sad in a way wilds are not more popular. So many people think they are the ugly cousins of fancy splendens and it's just not true.

    I breed all wilds but one splenden I breed halfmoon bettas . They're my favorite of domestic splendens but I mostly breed wild bettas . Rubra, macrostoma , some Indonesian like chanoids , hendra albimarganada. Unimaculata. But the smaragdina is in my opinion the most beautiful of all wilds

    Thanks, he is a lovely male and a great father, and his offspring are very nice quality as well. I did have a couple of pairs back when they were known as Betta sp. palangkaraya and bred them but the quality was not as nice as they just came through the wholesaler. They definitely have much smaller spawns than splendens complex fish. I love my wilds. They are about all I own.

    That is a perfect example of a betta hedra or red wine betta. They used to be known o my as betta SP palangkaraya. I used to breed them. Never raised more than twenty or so from each brood. I love the small bettas from Indonesia.
