    Welp, here we go again!! It's a very small spawn, probably because the female hasn't eaten in a week. Just picked up live blackworms today (they weren't taking flake or pellet), but oh well.
    Seems like these guys like to spawn three days after I get them, lol.
    At least a smaller spawn will make it easier to raise them and some splendens x imbellis babies in three weeks ;)

    1st off very pretty secondly why did you make a new thread?

  3. RtessyFishlore VIPMember

    Just because this one is a breeding thread to follow the progression of the fry, the other is to follow how well the adults do in my aquariums.

    Ah ok.

  5. RtessyFishlore VIPMember

    Oh, but if you meant why it's #2, I had a previous spawn from a different pair, but those babies are all grown up :)

    Cant wait to see them grow up!!!

    The male abandoned the nest and there aren't any eggs :(

    Feels bad....
  9. RtessyFishlore VIPMember

    Yeah, it does. The good news is I finally got them some live food, so hopefully they'll feel better in a few days. And the female I have with the two males isn't spawning, none of them are showing that behavior, so after QT, she should be ready to spawn with my splendens!

    Ooh, didn't know they could spawn so soon after

    Well, they ate their eggs on Easter, so that sucked, lol.
    Today, no more eggs... From them
    In the tank with 2 males 1 female, there are eggs!! And the male is making another bubble nest, so he's probably going to move them. Fingers crossed I get at least some baby bettas, lol
  12. RtessyFishlore VIPMember

    Tbh I'm not sure what I'll do if I get babies in both tanks, hmmmm
  13. RtessyFishlore VIPMember

    Welp, they both spawned yesterday, and both nests are still holding today. Hm. But also I'm very excited!!!
  14. RtessyFishlore VIPMember

    Babies!!! The top male seems to have lost all his except 3-4 (?) He's not grabbing them when they fall, that's rhe one wirh the nest in the corner.
    The other guy is doing great, has tons of little babies!!
    Got my BBS hatchery bubbling away, gotta check on those microworms...

    Long time no see, LOTS of babies. I removed the female a few days ago, I'll take out the male today, he won't eat atm and I'm worried about him.
