new egg estimate... was able to count small cluster of eggs near the glass that was smaller and easier to count and it had 37 eggs (shown in black circle) and im guessing that by the size of the cluster there is about 7 to 8 times what that was in the nest so new guess is 250+ eggs.... this could get interesting
thanks for the link Matt! I don't think I will need to do that though, I talked to a fish store owner not to far from here and he said that he would give me another grow out tank in return for some of the bettas when they get older, also said he would be interested in buying a good portion of them as well! so if all goes as planned I should be able to handle this large spawn!
That's good! I personally do not really like giving fish to pet stores because I have no idea of who ends up with them and what conditions they are kept in, but its better then you having 200 babies to feed twice a day I guess lol.
I am going to go check his store out here in a couple days and I can see how he runs things and how clean he is with his fish, he is an older guy and its kind of a old fashion ma and pa store so im really not to worried. I mean you cant know exactly the conditions they will face when sold to customers but its probably better than me trying to take care of that many!!!
Any news? I'm new to Betta world, thanks to one purchase of a brilliantly colored CT, I've quickly gone from cup, to cube, to 2.5 gal to 10 gal with filter, heater, gravel, play castle, silk plants and leaves--now I want to breed this guy, especially after learning he has a relatively short life span.
So, I'm rooting for the novice to take on spawning.
