Thanks for the compliments everyone!

In the past 2 days I've seen 2 dead. They were 2 of the larger ones so I'm a bit worried. Been keeping water parameters In Check and they have more than enough to eat, so pretty clueless on how it's happening. Terrified that its a disease of some sort.

Oh hun they are adorable!!! I'm sorry you lost a couple!!

One hand reaches out and pulls a lost soul from harm. While a thousand more go unspoken for, they say what good have you done? By saving just this one... It's like whispering a prayer in the fury of a storm. And I hear them saying... You'll never change things...

For future referance.

Please do not PM me asking me to send you baby bettas.

I will not do this!

Not trying to point anyone out in specific but this is the 3rd time I've been asked.

Just because petco sells babies, that doesnt mean that its OK to do. Its actually horrible to sell babies and will not play any part in it.




Now, for an update::

Found the dad to this spawn dead this morning. I was horrified!! I know I am not supposed to play favorites, but he was definitely my favorite male.
So, I wont be able to replicate this spawn although if I get a fry that looks like dad I'll either breed back to mom or go for f2.

So sorry to hear that!

This is why part of me hates bettas. It seems like it's always your favourites that die and the ones you don't really care for that seem to live forever.

Hopefully you get some fry that are of equal or better quality than dad to either breed back to mum or cross on a sibling.

Sorry for your loss. I feel your pain when when a favorite and spawn parent is lost. The only good thing is you bred him before he died and you have gorgeous fry from this spawn.

LBF -- This is so true!! Whenever I have had disease outbreaks in my sorority tank, its always been my favorite, breeder quality fish that die. The ones that live are the fish I've taken in from aquantances (sp?) that werent able to care for them anymore.

Logistics -- I remember reading that you lost the female out of your spawn. She was a very pretty girl.

Thank you both for your condolensces. I'm really upset still. He was the first fish I've seen of that coloration, which also happens to be my dream coloration. He was so vivid!!

It's just a huge shock. He had great care and from what I could see, was in great health...
