Alright guys, got a update for you. Just won a long and difficult bidding war, but I finally won! Landed my self a copper Smaragdina pair, although the bidding was ridiculously high. Any how if you want to see how crazy the bidding war was check out this link lol: http://www.aquabid.c...ettas1334591185

Here's some pics of the male of the Copper/Golden Smaragdina of the pair I won, Enjoy guys.

Just won these off Aquabid, they're a pair of blue guitar smaragdina and a pair of blue mahachai. Too bad the breeder didn't include pic of the females, but from the numerous other pairs of imbellis, mahas and smarags, the females are always stunning. Bad news is I lost my female imbellis last week, the smaragdina and imbellis pairs I currently have are housed in a 46 gallon bowfront blackwater setup. Woke up one morning last week and found the female imbellis beaten to death, strangely all the other wilds were unscathed, males and female alike. So back on topic, When I emailed the Breeder in Malaysia in regards that I won the new bids I asked him if I could also buy another female imbellis from him. He asked why and I told him the female died 2 days after from getting beaten up, and you know what he said? His exact words were:

"I see...don't worry my friend, just send me the payments for the blue guitar smaragdina pair and blue mahachai pair. Forget the 24 hour dead policy, the new female imbellis I give you for free! Since you always support my wild betta bid."

Those were his exact words, not lying lol. Definitely the best betta breeder I've ever met online! Without further ado, here's the pics of the two males of the blue guitar smaragdina and blue mahachai pairs I just won. I'll get pics of the females once I recieve them.

My new blue mahachai male, this will be blue mahachai male # 2.

If you ever get bored of any of your smaragdinas, feel free to send them my way. They are gorgeous, especially that gold one!

I don't think I ever will get bored of these beautiful wild bettas lol. Their all show pieces in my secondary display tank. All my smaragdina pairs and imbellis pair will be re-homed to my 75 gallon blackwater display tank as soon as my baby gold crossback arowana outgrows it. I'll try to see if the same breeder can get me another gold smaragdina pair for my 20th Birthday in November, maybe he'll give me a deal lol.
