    Hi guys,

    Was at Eco Culture today and Azmi has kindly allowed me to take some pictures of his wild bettas...













    This beautiful betta will have even more striking colors during mating season.

    Comments/critique are welcome.

    Cheers,

    Yup. Shot only with one flash. Not my usual set up as it's taken in a shop. What a shame......

    I know it's bo bian (not pointing arrow to Azmi ) , but the color is not out, not impressive. As for technical points, I am not up to the standard to comment.

    should probably let the fish take a look at himself in the mirror before the shoot. the colors will be out....

    the reason why there is no colouration is b'cos it is a YOUNG fish.
    only time will the fish show its colours not a mirror.

    i think the 2 bands across the body showed that the fish was in stress. therefore its full color may not be displayed.... just like any other bettas when stressed up. i'm sure if he sees another male, u'll be able to see its TRUE color even it's a young fish. a simple test will tell. :P

    i do not know about your experience but i do have 6 males and 3 females macs ranging from very small young ones to super big adults.

    i have seen how they developed from 2 stripes to their full GLORY.

    i'm NO expert but i do JUST have a LITTLE experience wth these fellas to say what i have just said.

    when stressed, these fellas will hide and not be out in the open wth all its finnages erected for pic taking.

    if i recalled, benny was saying that this fish was just fed b4 the pics were taken, stressed macs don't eat.

    Hi Jay!

    Welcome to Aquatic Quotient!

    Yup. Those are the same ones on APF.

    I'm not exactly consistent with posting pictures sometimes. Some here and there, some I forget and lots get left on the hard drive. Usually just a few selected ones make it online.

    Cheers,
    I have dwarf cichlids in my tanks! Do you?
