Sharing some pictures on some new bettas I recently have received.

Betta unimaculata. They have breed, after only some weeks in the aquarium. The fry is growing fast.

Betta rubra. I only received 4 from the supplier in Asia. One died after I received it, and the three others turned out to be females. Better luck next time!

Thanks to both of you.

Sadly it isn't so many Betta rubra around. But I hope to get some males.
I also received some Betta ubesi, Betta channoides and Betta brownorum. These are all lovely fish.

I am glad to see that SF have many Betta lovers, and that they also have extremely good fish profiles. Thanks.

Erlend

I think he means Betta Uberis.As for Betta Rubra we have lots of males and few females.When the weather will be better we can arrange something or contact Torben on that forum.
Which B.Uberis do you have? the green one,the blue one or the red one?

Hi Erlend

Welcome onboard..Nice to have more Scandianvian bettafreaks here.. I suppose you know the norwegian site labyrintfisk.no, thats where the local exchange of info and gossip takes place.

Herve , I dont have surplus rubra..I havent bred them this year as I´m concentrating on the ideii Stefan sent me some time back..and I´m happy to say I have fry swimming and one male brooding + a couple ogf pardalotus males brooding as well..

But Ill check if one of the local dealers who has the rubra on his list can deliver..if so it shouldn´t be too much of a problem getting the fish to Norway. I will meet with several Norwegian aquarists in the start of May in Varberg Sweden..maybe one of them could take the fish along

Thanks for replay.

I will probably receive more Betta rubra in 1 - 2 months. But you will here from me Torben, if don’t manage to get them.

Of course I ment Betta ubersi. The fishes are wild cought, and the colour on the fish is bluish and red. They are very shy.

Of course, my apologies for not putting two-and-two together. /rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" />

Ok ..I will not do anything then..price would be round 150 dkk a piece.

BTW the unimaculata are great fish, easy to breed but they jump and they jump high and long..an example: When I got my first unis some years back, I didn´t know they jumped..so I left a small opening over the bucket..a few minutes after my wife came and told me there was a fish in our hallway??? I went and yes..one of the unis had managed to jump at least 3 meters from the bucket!

It survived and I had many fry from him..Today I don´t have the species anymore.but I always remember the jumping betta ! It was an eyeopener...all bettas jump but to my experience unis are the worst !

If you want some Rubra of either sex I have lots of f1 adults. It's a pity that I didn't know a couple of weeks ago when the Scandinavian lads came over to the UK NW for the National Catfish convention. They took lots of fish back. The flights from Norway are very reasonable and go to both Liverpool and Manchester.
