Well it seems that given time, and daily feedings of mosquito larvae, my breeding pair of Betta livida have finally gave me a spawn. As of right now, the male is busy tending to a small nest of eggs at the back of the tank, and I'm hopeful that this will result in some fry.
This now means I've successfully bred all described species of this complex, and several undescribed species. Unfortunately, due to my ongoing issues with velvet, I haven't been as successful at raising large numbers of fry. My goal for 2015 is to get some of these rarer species beyond just the initial F1 generation. This will mean I have to figure out what is causing the periodic outbreaks of velvet in my tanks, and fixing the issue. Something that has eluded me thus far.
Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, I currently keep and breed a number of species from the coccina complex.
