The fry are very healthy, there are about 13 - 18 due to papa deciding he was hungry.

So there are 13-15 fry. They are growing swiftly with the constant water changes. I fed MW for the first few days, now they are on BBS.

There are two that I have my eye on that have outstripped the others in growth. I may separate them to a different tank.

Just keep swimming.

Neat and good luck! Would you mind posting a link to the blog with the betta barracks? I've heard of them but never seen any.

Sorry for the very late reply.
Yes, it's safer to breed with a month interval. But mine are over fed anyway so they're basically always ready to be bred. Besides male-female naturally bred (like OFL's method) will spawn every 3-5 days if the eggs are taken out. So I can breed the same pair every week.

The best looking fry out of this yet besides a solid iridescent green sibling. This one looks like it will be a dark green body with red bi color fins! YAY! Its super aggressive though towards its siblings.

Lots of Super Deltas, two in particular seem to have the HM spread. Lot of gold metallics, a few green, and lots of pearly girls.
