    Adventures in Betta Mahachaiensis

    Females would be able to live with them but I’ll have to separate out the males. I will likely remove the male at some point, just to stop the baby supply. I only have so many tanks and with there already being a local breeder, I don’t know if there would be high local demand for them. Yeah...

    Adventures in Betta Mahachaiensis

    Hello, I thought I would share my (thus far limited) experience with Betta mahachaiensis since they seem to be pretty popular lately. I bought a trio from a local breeder and brought them home on April 8th. They were still pretty young and it turned out that I ended up with 2 males; thankfully...

    Congrats! I hope the fry continue to do well 🥰 Where did you get him from? He doesn’t quite look like an imbellis to me from that photo.

    Update on the mahachaiensis: Last week or so, I realized that I had ended up with 2 males. Thankfully, I got them from a local breeder who was happy to swap him for another female. The second the extra male was removed, the existing pair spawned and they have been spawning ever since. I think...

    I know I don’t post here much but I just wanted to give a little update, the unimaculata sp. are successfully breeding! I think they’re planning to fill the 40 gallon as much as possible so unless there’s a good amount of local interest, it may be time to start reading up on shipping fish. There...

    Hehe, I actually think the LFS has a pair at the moment. Unless I decide against the B. mahachaiensis then… hm… don’t tempt me! Very nice! A friend on another forum has a group of uberis and the guy I bought the unimacs from breeds them too. Honestly, I haven’t kept the best track of the...

    I think what species I wouldn’t want to keep would be a better question! I’m really loving the mouthbrooders so I’d love to try a few more species (especially Macrostoma) but I might actually acquire some B. mahachaiensis from someone local before too long. I used to have a female hendra and I’d...

    Thank you! I was able to get the Edith’s from a LFS for $10 each I believe & the Unimacs were from a local breeder and they were $65 for the pair… honestly it feels like a steal! They’re such cool fish, I’m hoping they’ll spawn in my tank.

    Sharing my Wild Bettas

    Hi, I just joined the forum and wanted to share a little about the wild bettas I currently keep. I just have 2 wild species at the moment but I’m hoping to branch out, the species I have are Betta edithae & I believe Betta unimaculata, or a species within the unimaculata complex. I’ve had the...
