Here are two fish I rarely blog about; my mum's pair of Betta unimaculata.
I have sort of a conflicted relationship with these fish. On one hand, they are one of my favourite species from this complex. On the other hand, their Houdini-like abilities at escape are almost enough to drive me to drink!
The male pictured below is the one survivor from an ill-fated trio. His female lived only long enough to provide me with a replacement before she somehow managed to jump out.
I have to say that there was a lot of drama putting together their new 2ft tank. As it was, I ran out of both patience and motivation before getting their tank filled, so that will have to be a job for today.
Otherwise, enjoy the pictures. They don't particularly like the camera so it is only fortunate that they are large enough I can still manage to get some decent shots.
Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, I currently keep and breed a number of species from the coccina complex.
