It's Raining Fry!

This is the third attempt to get a spawn from a pair from my previous spawn. The male is a HM that is so dark blue he is almost navy. I paired him with a spawn mate female HM royal blue.
Last night I saw the male swimming up and down a lot, so I took a closer look. The fry were hatching and raining down and the male was trying his best to keep them in the nest.
Unlike his father, he made a bubble nest with some duck weed in it under the cup. I can't say how many yet, but it looks like a good number.

YEAH!! That's awesome!!! :D You might get some DeT's, though. Good luck with the fry. <3

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

I know. I expected that with my last spawn, but I was super lucky and all of them became HM.

That's great! How many were there? Around 50-75? Boy, that's a lot of jars...

I really can't say how many there are right now. Some will probably die off in the next few days. I'll try to count them once they get a little bigger.

Congrats on your spawn. Can you post some pics when they get big enough?

I will as soon as my camera can pick them up. I wish I had a micro lens. Funny, each spawn, I forget how small they are when they hatch.

The fry are still doing well. Their father is doing a great job. Unlike his own father, he made a bubble nest and is doing his best to keep his "kids" in it.

Took dad out Friday because the fry are free swimming. It looks to be about 50 or so fry. Lots of plants so there could easily be many more.
