Just an update for all you betta lovers on my Green HM spawn. The fry are doing well. Last time a counted them was when i moved them to the 20 gallon tank for growout and there were 37 of them! They are starting to get a little colour but you cant see it in the pictures.
Very nice! At what age will you have to separate male and female? With most fry the bigger the amount of waterto a smaller ratio of fry the faster they will grow. There is some theory about fry secreting a growth inhibitor. If this is true (and I think it is) water changes and large tanks would dilute this inhibitor and allow the fry to grow faster.
they're adorable! how many have made it? we have 11 mahachai fry now that are almost 2 weeks old. (we lost a majority to a crazy problem we didn't think of until it was too late.) how old are your baby bettas now?
The breder i got them from had problems growing the parents out also.. so it may be genetics. I fed microworms, bbs, a powdered food, and now they get freez dried blood worms and mushed up peas. Soon to be adding shrimp to it.
They are all healthy
