Well I bet he/she will make it -and yes, can't wait for the new pairs either :p I have to wait for this spawn to be big enough LOL I'm taking up two tanks currently for the same spawn - so no more spawns just yet

I tried the amount the package said (teaspoon per litre) and it was wasted. Try adding less eggs, decent amount of salt (I am using aquarium salt). I had currently: large pop bottle with top cut off. Airstone attached to hose and pump (with adjustable valve) and it seems to work great :p

I can't wait for your spawns!!

I don't think I am going to do bbs it seems complicated lol I read how to make your own decaps though on www.crazy4bettas.ca and thought it would be better than live. I have part of the hmpk tank set up already lol.

I have decapsulated BBS as well... The fry only JUST started to eat it. Nothing beats live... I can gaurentee you it is not as complicated as it seems. Trust me I saw the complicated set ups, "timely costs" etc it's not that bad.

Thanks!!!

And I do see how she differs from my veiltails. Her dorsal, anal and caudal are very wide! O_o

Oh!! So, some of the fry (the biggest ones of course) are showing the same iridescent color as mama....

Yay! I finally have the BBS thing down. Here is a video of Binky and Superman. Any ideas on how to get my HM males to build a nest? Ive lowered to output, baffled, everything I can think of but never a nest built by either of them and they are very healthy. Yet my VT male builds them like a crazy guy. Ive put a Styrofoam cup cut in half too. Any ideas? Anybody?

Do what I do for stubborn bettas. I take a spoonful of another betta's nest, or his own nest from a previous tank and add it in. Always works for me! And yay!! lol

Lower water level ... it seems like its to high and remove any surface disturbance.. baffles wont help to much
