    Spawn Log (Ricardo & Lucy)

    Next on deck, pair of red crowntails. He is a nice HM Crowntail and she is real spunky as you can see from the photos. I will be putting them together in a day or so; they are both so aggressive I want them to spend some time in the divided tank getting used to each other.

    They seem to be unusually clumsy, but they are doing that thang.

    Well usually crowntail females lose several rays during the courtship, I think Lucy still has all of hers. All I see is a little damage to some webbing. So appears to be a relatively gentle spawning.

    So we have the two bettas that were peaceful that tore each other up trying to spawn. And now these two fiery reds that spent half their life flaring being much less abusive. Seems that this may be the case most of the time predicting how a spawn will go, despite the fact that it is entirely counterintuitive.

    To sum it up: Bettas are weird lol!

    I've been busy, but so has Ricardo, I saw that I had hatchling this morning and he is doing a good job of nurturing them as they hang from the nest.

    Now have freeswimming fry. Appears to be a rather small spawn, but that is ok. Daddy has been moved.

    I initially stated that it was a small spawn. It now appears to be much larger. This spawn is all transparent, and at their size this makes them almost invisible.
