Hi Keith,
Since your thread is a log (spawn/breeding), I'm moving it to the "Spawn Log" section

BTW, congrats on your success.

Unfortunately I have loss all my breeding pairs as I spawned them immediately when they were imported for me from Thialand. The downfall of imports they do not adjust to our waters for very long therefore I would spawn them immediately. As you would see in my threads that I have loss all my adults and now I have raised their fry for my future breeding programmes.

IMO/IME it's not due to water adaptation. It's more about care differences. I too can't keep a bought fish for long - same water, same climate. But my fry can live longer than the average bettas in my area. As long as you have fry, it's not a loss.

BTW, did you breed all the above pairs at the same time?

What do you mean by care differences?

And also, to both of you, how long do your imports last once they arrive to you? I'm planning to import atleast one pair in the next few months, but I dont know how soon after I'd be able to spawn them.

10 HM, 3 HMPK, 5 HMPK fry

Most of my imports lasted me only a couple of months, although I am doing everything right. Age my water and keeping at the correct temperature, good quality food and keeping tank glass clean. A few of my imports could not get a chance to spawn them.

Man is it common to have parents dying after breeding? I breed my first betta and both parent was good and healthy afterward spawn about 100 or so and 70 live right now.

Wow! I'll have to make sure I only import when I'm ready to spawn then. I've heard that imports dont last from quite a few people. Never been informed of why that could be though.
