    I started this spawn on Feb. 13th...It took 3 days for them to actually spawn....This was by far the hardest most aggressive spawn I've had to date..

    They finally spawned on Feb. 16th at 1:45 pm.....I took her out after an hour....My goal is a small spawn this time..

    Here is the starting video of the progress of this spawn...Daddy has been an excellent Father considering it is his 1st breeding....

    Eggs hatched and are raining down this morning..(Feb. 18th 7am)

    Their babies are going to be soooo pretty MM. Looks like so far it was sucessful. I hope he keeps up the good work. I'm anxious to see how these babies look when they get older.

    Wow. They are both gorgeous. The video is super clear, too. Thank you for sharing! I really enjoyed the shot of the little guys dropping and wiggling back up. Keep us posted, please, because I love watching the progress of your spawns.

    after reading the above post about watching the video and it being so clear, I thought to myself I must have done something wrong. So tried again. Silly mee..... :oops: I clicked on the bar instead of the body of the video page. No wonder all I saw was the photo of the male betta and nothing else.. jeesh...
    BUT at least I was now able to watch the video. It was amazing Karen! :)
    Did I spot mama going to the bottom of the tank and eat something? hmmm.. was that eggs per chance? ;) oo ooo....
    Daddy seems to be doing very well as a first time Dad.. awww.. how sweet!
    Best of luck with them. :;sn

    The Mommy and Daddy both gather the eggs and insert them into the nest Kate....Some Mothers decide to snack on them lol...This Mommy actually did all the work while the Dad blew fresh bubbles......

    I took Daddy out yesterday afternoon (Feb 19th) He had been in the spawn tank for 6 days and was looking really tired...He hadn't ate since the 13th so I knew he was hungry....He is a fantastic Daddy! Very attentive to his fry...

    This is a really small spawn...I removed the female after 1 hour of spawning to keep my numbers down....I'm guessing maybe 30 are in there...After my spawn of 100 plus I just didn't want to go there again!

    Here is Daddy caring for his fry..
