i've not kept many Betta's but my favourite was simplex, have you got any pics of them Haji.
i agree the prima is'nt gaudy but it looks as if it's got charm.

That´s a pity because at the moment all we have for simplex are pictures of its habitat... /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":p" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" /> /rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" />

Some updates

After doing some gardening work this afternoon,managed to take time take photos of my new primas.

3 day old fry

The fry were released last Thursday after 10 long agonying days of brooding by the male.About 50+++ fry were released /happy.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="^_^" border="0" alt="happy.gif" /> By the way, the other male is also brooding now /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Approximately 2mm TL ...... Like this shot /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":p" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" /> as it shows the mean look on the face of this fry /rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" /> /happy.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="^_^" border="0" alt="happy.gif" />
