    I figured I needed to update this thread a bit since there has been some changes in my stocking as of late.
     
    I recently lost my B. Macrostoma pair, my B.Pugnax pair, and my single female B. Ocellata.  
     
    I gained 8 juvie B. Unimaculata and a male B. Simplex as well as bunches of new fry from my B. Albimarginata pairs and my first batch of fry from my B. Midas pair.

    Seconded!
     
    Sorry to hear you've lost some of your stocking - do you still have the albis?  I really like them [​IMG]

    That pic of the B. Simplex I plan on entering into May's FOTM contest since I have already entered one of my cories for this month.  Thanks on the praise for that pic. It is the best pic of him by far that I have.  He is a ham though and likes to pose for the camera. 
     
    Yeah sucks about me losing the stock I lost.  :(   Especially the B. Macrostoma pair since they are by far the most expensive and hardest to aquire.  I do still have both pairs of my albis though and they are my favorite species of wild that I keep.  I have 3 different batches of fry growing out from them.  LOL

    Wow! They're beautiful, Wildbetta! Are the wild strains less agressive than the splendens?

    No I didn't enter it in last month's contest because at the time he was holding fry and couldn't get a good verification pic of him.  Maybe this month I will be able to get him in a verification pic.  :)

    They have such quiet beauty, these wild bettas, [​IMG]   I've never seen one in the stores! I too am curious, how does their temperament compare to the betta splendens?
