 I  would  be  the  first  person  to  congradulate  you,  as  am  a  big  fan  of  it.  Guess  you  should  be  the  first  one  in  India  to  have  them.  Which  country  were  they  aquired  from?  Have  come  across  many  of  them  in  a  typical  African  region  -  Darussalam  i  guess.  I  always  wondered  how  did  this  fish  become  so  famous  in  that  region,  as  i  thought  bettas  were  originally  from  the  southeast.

 Shankar  they  are  wild  caught  from  Malaysia.
 Yes  they  are  the  first  in  India.
 
 I  got  it  through  a  friend  who  deals  in  Malaysian  wild  caught  especially  Bettas.

 Are  you  sure  of  B.  macrostoma  in  Darussalaam,  Tanzania,  must  be  some  other  fish.
 
 These  fish  are  endemic  to  Malaysia.
 
 They  were  thought  to  be  extinct  in  the  wild,  until  Tony  Pinto  rediscovered  them,  in  2001,  I  think.

 Hiya  Mitul,
 
 He  got  2  pairs,  if  I  am  not  wrong  after  a  long  time.  One  pair  is  here,  the  other  is  with  Ronnie  Lee.  Ronnie  has  spawned  them  9  times  but  the  male  has  swallowed  the  fry  instead  of  spitting  them  out.
 
 The  problem  is  their  availability,  and  the  astronomical  price  ofcourse.
 
 I  hope  I  have  some  success  with  them.  My  other  mouth  brooding  bettas  the  B.simplex,  jumped  out  one  rainy  night  and  the  other  B.ocellatus,  died  while  I  was  away  on  the  ship  mysteriously.

 Yes  am  sure  they  are  macrostamas.  May  be  they  are  commercially  bred  there  and  it  could  be  Brunei  either,  not  very  sure.  The  breeding  males  show  off  mindblowingly  brilliant  colours.  Thats  why  i  luv  them.
 
 All  the  best  keeping  them!  Thumb Up

 @  Shankar,  you  are  thinking  of  Brunei  Darussalam,  which  is  the  official  name  for  Brunei...  the  capital  of  Tanzania  is  Dar  es  Salaam  Very Happy
 
 @  Madan,  keep  them  in  95-100%  RO  with  peat  and  badam  leaves...  you  want  the  water  to  be  the  colour  of  dark  tea.  They  will  colour  up  spectacularly  in  such  conditions.
 A  friend  here  got  his  pair  to  spawn  within  2  weeks  of  import,  under  such  conditions.  He  has  about  30  six  week  old  fry  now.

 Thanks  Rahul,
 
 This  is  new  to  me.  I'll  definitely  try  it.
 
 I  was  told  that  these  fish  were  caught  in  clear  running  water,  highly  oxygenated  stuff.  
 
 Well  I'll  get  badam  leaves  and  peat  in  position.
 
 Boy  do  these  guys  shit.  The  largest  chunks  out  of  any  fish.  They  are  as  bad  as  discus.  Their  bare  bottom  tank  looks  live  a  cow  shed  each  morning.

 That  female  looks  really  gravid...  I'd  expect  them  to  spawn  following  an  infusion  of  RO.  Just  be  sure  to  make  the  change  gradually.
