    That’s brilliant! Hook and line is how many locals collect waseri-types as well. If you put everything from your link after the = in between [ you tube ] [ / you tube ] you can view the clip from the forum. (Without all the spaces)

    icic, they do it with weed grass stalk pierce through the worm, I fail to do that when I tried it few years back, so, just do it the simple way

    just checked on them, male brooding again, this time more defensive, although it saw foods, it’s striking is more towards pushing foods away instead of joining the feast with the female, at the moment will leave them alone for a week

    thanks for the input, I’m sure it’ll be helpful for me to spawn them /smile.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:)” border=”0″ alt=”smile.gif” />

    by the way, for mouth brooder that goes on swallowing eggs, from my personal experience, 3rd point from Colin apply to me, where by my previous B. Albimarginata male(my F1 captive bred) failed for about 5 times before it’s first success, I’ve since sold it to a friend who recently told me the male succeed again, I guess some times experience do count /smile.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:)” border=”0″ alt=”smile.gif” />

    Will be heading to a formal reserve jungle for Pugnax fishing over the weekend near my house, will update some photos of the habitat soon

    It’s quite surprising that B. splendens isn’t considered endangered then, no?

    Splenden exist in most part of Thailand, but to find a real splended…erm…something that is pure wild with no human interference(selectively bred, dumping of fighters & so on) is pretty impossible since Thailand is the origin country of “fighting fish”, the culture existed for over hundreds of years, fishes from different localities were all “catch & release”(don’t forget to put fight in between C & R)…

    so it’s pretty impossible to get a true form of splenden since the species exist in a country where there are a culture of releasing selective bred fighter(not just selective breeding, but to take hybrid into consideration)

    So, extinct or not, depends on how you choose to define the species, some takes the species to named their fancy looking betta, some call it a wild caught fighter, while some call it the pure species without human interference(which is pretty much extinct)
