Didnt really shoot much during the whole events, but here's some fishy shots to share with you guys /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

This is my first time seeing the real live Betta gladiator swimming in the tank and manage to get some shots before stopped by the sabah fella there.

Thanks Colin and Aquasaur!

Colin, so far, it's not for sale yet. Only few specimens available and one spawn recorded. Perhaps in a year time where someone would release it?

Im using Nikon D200 with Nikkor 60mm f/2.8 Macro

Love that Betta! /wub.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":wub:" border="0" alt="wub.gif" /> Has this species made it to Europe yet?

Cake or death?

Ha ha they probably will, yeah. But worth it. How many specimens were there on display in how big a tank? If more than 1, could you observe them living up to their name - constantly fighting?

It was a newly set up tank just for the exhibition (a temporary one of course)
It's about approx 1.5ft (H) X 1.5ft (L) X 1ft (W) with few driftwood and java fern, anubias and ADA Amazonia soil. Installed with sponge filter and light. That's about it! /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":p" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" />

They were pretty easy to sex.
