'day guys, just a quick into.

 

Licorice and chocolate gourami, along with a few wild Bettas are my primary interest. One of those people with too many tanks than they care to admit, along with excess fish from time to time.

 

I like the ol' fashioned forums over the social media; topics don't disappear within minutes and you can find them again.

 

Oh, and that pic is a male choco brooding eggs.

'day Delapool, yeah it's a problem. My daughter moved out of home last week and there is now a spare room . . . .

 

I saw your mammoth thread on the 150 gal. :)

Betta albimarginata, they breed like rabbits. I'll get a photo for you. I have the rutilans, but they just don't want to breed. Maybe all the same sex, or I am doing something wrong. The one I am looking for is the macrostoma (sigh).

 

That choco does look like the leopard now that you mention it. The dorsal fin goes up when the other chocos approach too close.

There was macrostoma sp available maybe 6 Months ago, but where RRP for around $900 a pair. Regularly check the Aquarium Industries list then call a Local fish store who order through them.

 

Do you sell the betta fry? wouldn't mind a couple of the albimarginata

I have a few albi :)

 

Sexed pairs about 6 months old. The males are a nice orange when the females get frisky.
