My Easter basket is full of gorgeous fry tails....I took this photo yesterday and I can't stop looking at it...She looks so cute wrapped in her lovers tail...

BTW, this is Wriggly's sister...She is the 1st one I have spawned out of that bunch...The photo of her was taken AFTER the spawn...Quite amazing actually...She didn't get a single nip...

Thank you all for the nice comments...

Whisper, No I do not show him..He is an import male and I can only show fish that I bred...I will be showing the female this month..

Oh I see. If you're going to show the female she must not have gotten to torn up by the breeding. That's a good thing. Good luck with her at the show.

Why so surprised that he spawned? how old is he?.... and what is the age that they do the best at breeding?

Karen, I always enjoy your photos very much, but that one with the lady peeking out from under her lover's tail is one of my favorites ever! Like you, I can't stop looking at it.

Beautiful couple caught in the process of making some fantastic babies!!! It's hard to believe betta spawning can be so -- well, violent -- looking at your photos. I completely respect your experience plus time devoted to match-making and to the happy, gorgeous babies you have produced. But you obviously have a nearly uncanny amount of instinct that has also contributed to your success!

BTW, love your Zazzle store, which I haven't visited for quite a while. (Post #6, this thread, for those who might have missed the link.)

Thank you Pam! I sure do miss you..Hope the kids are doing well...

I miss you, too, Karen, and the relatively short drive to the Phoenix area to visit your lovely home, incredible fish room and hundreds of kids.

Your kids in my home are still doing great! Antonio, in particular, is such a wonderful friend. I don't mean to brag but to extend more kudos to you. He is just gorgeous! His fins are getting as long as your old and late Will's super-long fins. They are extremely long dark red and lined in light blue, like lace, and he has the best (begging, of course) personality.

Can't post a picture of him right now because of a weird camera problem, but I promise you'd be proud. Orchid (one of your grand-daughters) and Norbert are just fine, too.

Glad you're happy in your new CA home!
