Wild Bettas anyone?
#1
Has anyone here any experience of keeping wild bettas?

I'm looking at betta albimarginata, pallifina, imbellis and brownorum and thinking maybe a species only tank.
I was put on this earth to accomplish a certain amount of things. At this rate I may never die!

Are you thinking separate tanks for each species?
6 foot (600L) South America Rio Guaporé theme.

7 x Biotodoma cupido, 4 x Laetacara dorsigera, 2 x Apistogramma trifasciata (wild), 20 x Gymnocorymbus ternetzi, 18 x Hyphessobrycon eques, 30 x Hyphessobrycon herbertaxelrodi, 18 x Corydoras Sterbai, 12 x Corydoras caudimaculatus, 9 x Otocinclus sp.

I'm thinking to get one species only. A group for the 55gal tank.

Sounds interesting.
If I still had my (very) old fish books I could have been more help, but there are (I believe) a couple of good labyrinth-based fish sites......if only I could remember which they are as I don't have them stored in my favourites for no apparent reason.... Rolleyes
If at first you don't succeed....
...get someone else to do it! Big Grin

Enjoy your fish, shrimps and snails!

I think Wholesale Tropical in Bethnal Green had some in a few months ago. Might be worth a call.
