Awww thank you Create!! And yes you should move back!!! We are trying to up the bar for PNW betta's :)

Just because I'm in a cup, does not mean to pass me up, all day long I sit and stare wishing you would take me there. To your home to set me free, in a tank would mean worlds to me. I'll be your friend and loving pet, buying me wont bring regret. I'm just a Betta can't you see, all I ask is you could too love me - CandiceMM

A cold cup was not my destiny-Heart Breaker

DAY 1 IN SPAWN TANK

Today I set up my spawn tank and released the male around 5pm after acclimating him. I put the female in the spawn tank in her beanie and the male went crazy. He is yet to make any bubble nest but I am hoping he will have one in the morning when I wake up.

Tank- 5 to 6 inches of water. I used 3 gallons of spring water and the rest tap. I conditioned with Prime and also steeped some crushed IAL in boiling water. After it was done I added it to the water for fast release of tannins. I also added 2 more full IAL. For plants I have Hornwort, Java Moss and Frog Bit. I added a cave for the female and a styrofoam cup for the male.

Fry Foods- Micro worms, vinegar eels, and Golden Pearls.

Here is the female, marble HMPK. She doesn't have the full 180 spread on caudal but I love her dorsal.

This is the male, marble HMPK.

Flirting couple.

Here is a short video after I put the pair in the tank. Female still in beanie.
