I recently purchased several wild-caught pairs from Joty, and another seller based in Thailand. They came across in the October shipment, and apart from the unfortunate death of one half of my Betta sp. apiapi pair, it seems that the remaining fish survived the arduous shipping and quarantine process.
They are to be released from quarantine today and will most likely be sent out tomorrow. There's just this final journey from Queensland to Melbourne to get through, and then they will home in their new tanks.
The remaining fish are a Betta rutilans female (I think this is about the fourth attempt at importing one successfully), a pair of Betta coccina, two pairs of Betta livida, and my Betta sp. apiapi male. I'm particularly excited about the Betta livida as this species has proved difficult to acquire in the past few years.
Tanks were filled earlier this week, so now all that's left to do is hope they have a safe trip down.
Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, I currently keep and breed a number of species from the coccina complex.
