    Auntie shop got wild betta again, this time they have mandor, krataois and dimidiata. All individually packed, and at very reasonable price. When I was there today evening, not many mandors are left.

    thanks for the heads-up! Do you mind helping to ask if these are wild-caught or captive-bred? Reason being I've found it easier to keep captive-bred ones, wild-caught ones are really very shy

    According to auntie they are all wild caught, it’s not commercially viable to breed. Today more wild bettas labeled as “mandor” arrived at C328, this batch definitely look different from last week as the operculsr bar color is different and the body color is lighter. There’s also some enisae in a red pail, pretty full size fish.

    I am inclined to say that last week “mandor” is actually strohi as the opercular bars are gold coloured and today’s batch is actually mandor. Perhaps some expert bro can comment.

    They are all bagged in small packet on the left of the wooden table where the cash register is when you stand facing the table. The enisaes are in a pail, this batch is all XL size, pretty large sized fish. If you cannot find, just ask auntie or any of the helpers there. So far C328 has been quite consistent in bringing in wild bettas at very reasonable prices.

    However, all the mandor and dimidiata look like males to me. Perhaps I am wrong, maybe some bro can comment or clarify

    Re: Wild Betta at C328 again

    Both shops use the same wild betta suppliers. Toh Aquarium is opened by the younger brother of C328 auntie’s hubby. He used to help out at C328. Toh Aquarium is not an expansion branch of C328 as clarified by auntie to many frequent C328 customers who asked if the 2 shops are related in any way
