    Hi MM :)

    I haven't been on in a while, but I am glad to hear that your betta breeding is still going great. Your pair is beautiful! Congrats on another sucessful spawn :) How are you other babies doing?

    I sold all of my BF and Copper spawns..I'm growing out my MG spawn now they are 7 weeks old..There are a LOT of them! You can see the progress in the close up of the nest thread...

    How have you been?

    I've been good, just really busy. Sadly I don't have my bettas any more though. I couldn't keep up with the water changes and tank maintenance on 9 tanks. I had to re-home the last of my little guys and now I just have my 3 large tanks and patio pond. Its a lot easier only having an hour of water changes per week instead of three! Now I just get to drool over all of your gorgeous babies! I will check out the nest thread to see the pics. You sure have come a long way with your breeding. Congrats on all of your sucess! Have you started selling them on aquabid?

    All Your Bettas Are So Gorgeous MM:)

    I Am SO Jealous OF Them. Here In Aus All Our Bettas Are Not Very Nice Colours.

    We are on day 6 now and everything is coming along as normal as can be...The spawn is really small and that is a good thing....Removing the female after an hour seems to have worked....The babies are starting to eat their microworms and are free swimming all around the tank.....This should be a beautiful spawn when they mature....I'm very excited about these little blue babies!

    They have been very slow growers for some odd reason...I haven't taken any pictures yet but I will soon...I also bred him to my mustard gas girl and those are REALLY nice! I've been slacking on my photo taking of the little ones because of all my teens I've been selling....

    Pictures soon, I promise lol
