Hello there!

Many thanks for receiving me here.

My name is Ricardo Correia and I'm from Portugal.

I love blackwater tanks and have a few wild betta fish: Hendra; Rubra; Mandor; Mahachaiensis; Elei; Albimarginata Malinau and Albimarginata Sebuku.
Been able to breed them all, expect for the Mandor. Its a pair that I got recently from a felow Portuguese breeder, and I haven't tried yet.

Got in a trade some Black Tiger Badis (Dario sp. 'Myanmar') and Dario dario.

Like I said, keep them all in blackwater tanks. Most of the tanins I get are from forests nearby. Since its they isolated, not so much problem with pollution.

Well, I hope to learn from your experiences. I just got to this forum trying to learn more about Sp. Jade.

Gonna check out how to work with this forum and might upload some pictures of my tanks.

Sorry for my English. Its been a while since I last wrote something in English.

Thanks once again.

Best regards,

Ricardo Correia

Hello and welcome to the Forum, Ricardo!

Your species are exciting and it is great to have another Wild keeper here, especially one with so many different Wilds鈽.

For any questions about Betta sp. Jade, feel free to post in my little thread, that betta4ever! kindly linked above.

They are easy to keep and breed - not much different from others in the Coccina Complex.

Looking forward to reading your threads!

Here in Portugal we have a small group of wild betta breeders. Among the species: Simorum, Api Api, betta brownorum, Antuta, Patoti, Macrostoma; Channoides; Uberis, Wild Splendens, siamorientalis. I'm skipping some species I bet..

I LOVE Dario Dario, so tiny and cute! My LFS always has them in and I'm always so tempted. I don't think I've ever seen the tigers around here, please post pics if you can :) I know they are a fave of @RussellTheShihTzu as well.

Welcome to the forum!
I'll give you two videos:

Not made by me. But by the former owner.

Hope you two enjoy. I will try to make a video of mine later.

Best regards.

Muchas gracias por recibirme aqu铆.

Mi nombre es Ricardo Correia y soy de Portugal.

Me encantan los tanques de aguas negras y tengo algunos peces betta salvajes: Hendra; rubra; Mandor; Mahachaiensis; Elei; Albimarginata Malinau y Albimarginata Sebuku.
Pudo criarlos a todos, excepto Mandor. Es un par que obtuve recientemente de un criador portugu茅s, y a煤n no lo he probado.

Obtuve en un intercambio algunos Black Tiger Badis (Dario sp. 'Myanmar') y Dario dario.

Como dije, mantenlos a todos en tanques de aguas negras. La mayor铆a de los taninos que obtengo son de bosques cercanos. Dado que est谩n aislados, no hay tanto problema con la contaminaci贸n.

Bueno, espero aprender de sus experiencias. Acabo de llegar a este foro tratando de aprender m谩s sobre Sp. Jade.

Ver茅 c贸mo trabajar con este foro y podr铆a subir algunas fotos de mis tanques.

Lo siento por mi ingles. Ha pasado un tiempo desde la 煤ltima vez que escrib铆 algo en ingl茅s.

Gracias una vez m谩s.
