Well new hatch bbs is great but a nice alternative is frozen nhbbs (expensive) or just frozen bbs, and if you can find a frozen cube called Freshwater Frenzy, it has bbs , daphnia, mysis ect all in one cube. I also started to introduce NLS grow about this age in small amounts. The key for me was to feed small to medium amounts often and with lots of variety but that also meant every 24-48hr doing a 50-60% water change and keeping the bottom pretty clean to avoid feeding bacteria and keeping ammonia down as much as possible.

I'm sorry to hear you lost the dad to this spawn. I was watching this log because of his beautiful coloring. He was one of my favorites that I have found here.

Sorry for your loss! I'm pretty sure dad produced some good babies though! Good luck. c:

Why did I become a fishkeeper in the first place...? Because someone has to look out for the fish who have no one on their side.

You could try decapsulated bbs as a weining food to pellets. You can buy them online. They are the bbs shrimp egg with the coating (which can be dangerous) removed. Mine (well their not mine but due to unfortunate circumstances I must raise them) are accepting it at just over a month and they are just about 1cm long. Use super small amounts because they won't accept it well at first and once they do they don't eat much anyways.

I might have to look into that. I have regular brine shrimp eggs on hand so I might just hatch those and maybe move to golden pearls or something as soon as they can get sent here...well see

Live bbs is great to, but the decaps gets them used to still foods.

I'm so sorry for your loss, dear. These will be some stunning babies. When they're of age (and if you have a fair number) I would definitely be interested in getting my hands on one. Such stunning parents! Good luck!

because he is trustworthy, and gentle, and never forgetful of what is right, but the thoughts of his mind are mild and righteous."


Are you looking for some art of your betta? I do digital drawings for $5-10! Click here to see some examples.

Thanks Ashleigh! I think I'll end up keeping 5-6, but that will leave around 15 to sell. I have a very small spawn of 21 (that I counted last night) so there won't be a lot to go around, but when it gets close I that time I'll be posting on here before anywhere else.

Anyways, some updated pictures. I think they are close to 5 weeks now? I can't remember the date, have it written down on the computer, but I'm too lazy to go upstairs and check, and too lazy to go back a few pages and check here as well lol

Resting on some moss


I added my RCS colony to act as a bit of a clean up crew for them and the plants. They seem to be getting a long pretty well. The fry are very curious of them! RCS don't go after live food :)


Checking an RCS out


This little one is always checking me out when I get close to the tank. So adorable! This one is tying for favorite with the metallic blue one I posted in an earlier post
