Received a pair of Betta unimaculata and a pair of Halfmoon plakat juveniles this morning from Eric here on the forum.
I am chuffed to bits as the Betta unimaculata are the first mouth brooding fish I have ever owned.
Here is a video of the unimaculatas settling in

Cänt get one of the juvenile splendens as they wont stay still long enough to focus on them.They are two smashing little fish.

Cheers Eric for letting me own them :)

This pair a week later.
Settled in nicely.
Looking forward to conditioning them now to see can I get them to breed for me.
Also picked up this gang during the week.
A lively bunch of characters to say the least.

Thanks Ger.
I have bbs,White worms,Grindal worms,Fruit flies,Daphnia and Dendrobaena on standby.
I am going to start adding a bit more of the above to the diet while reducing the flake and frozen food
Hopefully this along with some more frequent water changes will get them in the mood.

Plenty of live food. Really feed them well. You'll know when the female is ready she'll be really plump. Once she is do a large water change with cool water. This week coming should be good for breeding with all the rain we are supposed to get along with the low pressure.

Thanks for the advice Eric.
I have been observing thee two a lot especially at feeding time.
I have noticed the female is not a fan of worms of any type.
She swallows them and spits them out..Bbs and daphinia she will hunt down.
The male swallows anything tat moves,including duckweed that gets pushed under.
What were you feeding during the conditioning period?

Live white worms and earthworms.
Frozen blood worms
Blood worm pellets.
I find earthworms the business for conditioning them
