This wild has the habit of sticking its head inside the rockwork.Hunting for food i guess ... They are fed with dry food,earthworms and live mosquito larvae.

Ohhh yes!! I reckon there are a few here who will enjoy those pictures though. /cool.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="B)" border="0" alt="cool.gif" /> Does the patterning tend to vary much between localities Haji?

Ps - I took the liberty of correcting the spelling of the thread title. Hope that's ok. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Hi guys,

Thanks ..... i was not able to get a decent pose from this fish yet ..... i have moved them twice since i got them.The male krataios in the pic is fairly agitated as there's a brooding pallifina in the next tank ..... This is my first krataios .....so Matt,i would not be able to answer your question yet.I got this krataios and mandor about 2 weeks back.BTW I have another "interesting" species on the way from another friend now.

Thanks for pointing out the spelling error /rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" /> /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

I have seen differences from the enisaes that i have compared from others based on localities.But i have not seen the krataios collected from other regions yet.The krataios that i have now is sub adult form.This afternoon i will move them again to another tank for observation and photography. /thumbs_up.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumbsup:" border="0" alt="thumbs_up.gif" /> I have seen the other photos of the krataios ..... they look the same as mine.

Ah no I wasn't referring to the krataios. I understood you in your first post. I meant clues as to the identity of your next "interesting species" Haji. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

these are a very nice bettas, i've not managed to spawn mine yet as they were very young when i got them back of last year but i'm hoping for some activity. i'm not sure about the area mine are from, but will ask the breeder.
i find them to be very peaceful.
Malti, these are a mouthbrooding betta.

Hi Keith,

The krataios ..... just like the dimidiata ... belong to the same group ie dimidiata group ...... Mine is about 5cm TL.Been longing for these since last year ....... They are collected from West Kalimantan ie Pontianak,Sanggau and Mandor. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

I think dimidiata is one of the Betta species I´d most like to keep. The finnage on the adult males I´ve seen was just superb! /cool.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="B)" border="0" alt="cool.gif" />

I have a trio of something like 10 months old and they have not yet started to breed,I wonder at what age they will start as most of my Bettas mouthbrooder or bubblenester start around 6 months old.

Have not seen any collection on dimidiata for a quite a while now /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> ........... Have you guys seen the finnage of the lehis ....... equally attractive as well.The fry as young as 3 weeks developed the elongated finnage.

Hi Hachge,

They should be breedable by 8 mths.Maybe more conditioning would help /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
