I'v done things a bit different than most folks. These little darlings are now living with their mom, and they've adopted 4 teenaged feeder guppy fry that were living with one of my males.

Cute, can't wait to see how the babies turn out!

happy owner of a wild type GFP axolotl named Percival and too many guppies to count.

Me too! After all, until yesterday when I moved things around to accommodate 4 New bettas from Thailand (a pair of gold copper gases HM and a pair of red dragon monsters HM), I had 2 unrelated adult females, one of which tore a male of my almost to pieces...really shred him up but he's fine now...anyway these 2 girls were in a 5gallon relatively unplanted tank together.
And I have community tank with 3 spot gouramis and a betta, another tank with guppies of all ages and a very full finnaged HM male!
And my orange Dalmatian HMs still live together even though they are adults and they're 2 alpha males.

I honestly think that many people try too hard to separate bettas into their own individual tanks and that lots of fish can be placed together if you use just a modicum of sense and watch things carefully! Of course, I also think that everyone has a different approach and it is ok for that as well.

Ooo, orange dal HMs! I demand pictures.
I've tried my best to provide a relatively natural setting for my fry. In the wild, they wouldn't be isolated from other fish, and I think that the sooner the kids get used to other critters, the better they will tolerate them later. LOL, you should see how curious my fry are about their mom. There'll be 30 of them just sitting there, staring at her, and she's like, "Meh."

She's probably glad she doesn't have to breast feed them!
I am really bad about pics...haven't updated my albums in forever! The orange dalmation proud papa is Carnelian from my album here...he was such a great dad! He died shortly after but he was first spawning I had done with bettas and I was spoiled by him...the next 3 males I tried either failed completely or ate their kids.
Did you see, blimp33 has some more oranges for sale on aquabid...so does "nack" at beaverbetta (i wonder if he knows connotations of his betta company's name?). Nack is a sweetheart though; I had won one of his copper/red/black HMs and two days before he was to be shipped, he got stressed and chewed his tail pretty bad, so Nack emailed me the bad news w/pics and was worried that the trip would do the betta in! So, you can see how well he cares about his bettas...and, of course, as a result, I am always looking at his fish for one to buy :)

These kids will be 6 weeks old on Wednesday. I've ordered their jars - $22 for 50 32oz containers w/lids, free shipping! They should arrive soon. I'm going to wait as long as possible to jar them (water changes are just simpler with one 15gal than 50+ 32oz containers)

I need to start lining up homes for the little guys/gals. I'm seeing lots of cambodian looking fry. Hopefully at least some will get some red on their bodies. I'm also seeing plenty of orange, ranging from light, almost pastel, to bright, vibrant, Crayola orange. There's a few fry that look as if they'll turn out yellow.

Who wants a baby? Or 4? ;)

I might...been looking for a great yellow and a great orange...your babies uncle, my male HM, seems to have set on a nearly solid pastel orange with very little iridescence...might be interesting to keep going in that direction by breeding him to one of your lighter orange girls :)...I could call it the orange sherbet line. :)
