Betta macrostoma

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ziwX9rax_Ic

a little clip of how the male begins his long mouth brooding.

i have a friend who landed her first pair (a very beautiful moment for her.... 20 years of wanting a pair!!) and they have already spawned. these are NOT her fish, but a clip of an intimate moment. today is her Happy Spatday!! handsome Bruno just spit out his brood of babys.

anyways, anther friend of ours pointed out this youtube of the female passing over the eggs to the male and i had to share. i got all misty eyed.

here are a few pictures of them so you can see what they look like-
