I haven't updated this blog in what feels like forever.
The truth is, I have lost interest in breeding/keeping wild bettas. The constant battle I've been having with parasites in my grow-out tanks is draining, and while the rest of my fish are healthy and thriving, I don't want to have to face this issue every time my fish spawn and I get fry to raise.
I've decided that while I will be keeping my adult pairs/groups, any juveniles or sub-adults I have bred (excluding my Betta rutilans) will be sold. Once my current lot of adults pass on I will not be replacing them. The plan is now to get the rest of my juveniles and sub-adults healthy and then either trade them, sell them or hand them in at my LFS.
I will be leaving this blog/site up and will still definitely update it with pictures and stories about my wilds. I just won't be as immersed in the breeding or collecting side of the hobby as I once was.
Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, I currently keep and breed a number of species from the coccina complex.
