    I have attempted to release some eggs from my eggbound gal amata..shes here in these vids with kaori.....

    first vid is there first attempts after he is showing off his nest....she took allot from him prior

    second vid is them getting a better hang of it

    third vid, THEY GOT IT!!!!!! and I love how she was helping him put the eggs back in the nest...I thought she was snacking but she wasnt!

    and if you look close, you can see the free swimmers here in this vid..with kaori doing his daddy duties

    I have in the past, had to put some of MM's gals with the boys..they get so egg bound and lethargic, it scares me ...although ive tried allot of things to get them to release those eggs (fertile mertile's they are) this was always my LAST option....

    BUT PLEASE....before ANYONE attempts this, read Martinismommy thread located here.... this is not just a "throw the boy and girl" together kinda thing.....both amata and kaori needed allot of TLC after and have healed up nicely...if my camera didnt die 2 days before christmas, id have updated pics of everyone....:( but this all happened back on dec this point, i have 8 baby betta babies and ill get pics as soon as i can of them....

    Awesome Shawnie! I was wondering if the females would get egg-bound if not bred...How long roughly did it take for her to get egg bound?? I have an imported female that I have had for over 2 months now who is HUGE but hasn't bred yet. I have tried to breed her a few times now but she is very aggressive...GREAT vids!!

    NOT all fems will get egg bound..I have a few that never have...the only girls i ever owned that got egg bound, were MM's girls :whistling:..and im sure thats because of good quality bettas....i have a few cup babies ive rescued that probably couldnt breed if i tried...many members have gals that do just fine and dont have egg issues ;)

    Geez Shawnie, how did I miss these videos?
    Those first 2 were hysterical. Silly kids.
    The 3rd, just beautiful.

    Shawnie I don't know how I missed this but congrats!!! Those babies are going to grow up to be just darling! Like Karen said, I'm glad you ended up with a small batch which I'm sure will be much more manageable when it comes time to separate the kids. Good luck with them :) I bet Amata feels better now that she's not so egg bound!
