Hi all,
I registered here a while ago but never had the time to post so this will be my first time.

i dont have much experience with heavily planted tanks, just the usual hardy stuff thrown into tanks for fry and such but the interest was always there and so far i have successfully started one small bow front planted tank (very common plant species) with c02 and planning to start a new (hopefully more diverse)30 gallon.

as far as fish go, im a very experienced betta breeder and i now have the time to continue breeding after not having done it for 4 years so i hope there are some high quality betta lovers here. i would be more than happy to trade fish for some plant clippings with people once my first spawn gets going or just help anyone out who wants to try their hand at breeding these entertaining and beautiful fish.

this is what the tank looked like before and after i started dosing c02 and some examples of my ffish. i apologize for the picture quality these are old cell phone camera pics.

Pretty tanks.

Betta #2: he looks like a rose tail but the top of his fins has what looks a couple of crown tail spikes. Did your crown tail mess around with your rose tail betta? Lol! He is handsome otherwise.

nah those are just love nicks from spawning. i remember i had spawned that guy a week before that pic was taken. some females are really feisty, the female that started that line completely tore off most of the caudal fin from the male.

if i remember correctly he was 2nd generation from my red dragon line and used him to keep good symmetrical finnage going (his caudal fin is even with the anal).

He must have been stunning before he got ripped into. The rest of his fins have such nice shape.

I keep two Male Bettas. I probably won't breed Bettas, but I am always fascinated by those who do. I look forward to your posts!

Mouthbrooders are a LOT easier than bubblenesters. :icon_smil
also usually more expensive!

as far as aggression goes, the mahachai can be housed in small numbers just fine. they tend to be more docile compared to the other sub-species

even regular betta spawns can be raised to semi-adults in growouts with a little water current and minimal structure.
