    Used lengths of right-angle aluminium extrusion and acrylic bolts and nuts to prevent acrylic sheet covers from bowing and creating gaps at the shorts sides and corners. Prettied them up with colour sheet. I keep wild betta and they tend to jump. So far, so good

    What’s the cost in making such cover? And what are the wild betas you are keeping? Any success in breeding?

    Re: Preventing acrylic sheet covers from bowing

    The extrusion (Chong Pang hardware store) and acrylic bolts and nuts (eBay; still have leftover) cost less than S$13 in total. The acrylic covers are not new. All in, did the bracing for 8 tanks (20-30cm).

    I have:
    - betta livida (pair)
    - betta bellica (pair)
    - betta hendra (2M, 1F)
    - betta coccina (Malaysian female)
    - paros rubrimonthis (1M, 2F)
    - paros tweediei (1M, 2F)
    - paros Batu Pahat (

    No fry yet! Have had the livida and male bellica for about a year; rest are more recent. Running out of space

    That’s a nice wild betta and paros collection you have. How you know you are having a bellica and not simorum?

    The male bellica is Johor F1. Very tame. Looked like a mini arowana when young.

    If it is from Malaysia it has to be Bellica. Thanks for sharing
