Thanks! & Thank you so much for this girl, she is a great fish! I love her so much! Even though she killed another female in my sorority, she's still my favorite LOL.

I will have plenty in December, they are all available still. :)

I've noticed some of the "cello" looking ones, are turning out to have yellow fins! That's exciting! The yellow is very faint, so it's hard to capture in a picture, but they are definitely turning yellow! My favorite betta baby, who had spotted orange on its anal fin, and looked like it was wearing lipstick, now has solid orange fins and is starting to get orange spotting coming in on his/her face! It's really exciting to watch them change!

Some of the larger ones are showing iridescence as well.

I am doing 50% water changes mostly every day, sometimes I have skipped a day or two due to life. I siphon the poop up every other day though, I've been lazy about that for the past month. They are being fed a cube of frozen brine shrimp morning and night, and I also give them NLS grow for lunch and frozen daphnia is occasionally substituted for breakfast. I'm going to try them on some chopped frozen blood worms some time this week. I've considered feeding them beefheart, but have decided against it because of some things I have read about digestion and beefheart.

Otherwise, they are doing great! I love them so much, and this has been such a great experience. Now I can only hope that I am able to package them properly when they are old enough to be shipped out to new homes.

Lol, I was attempting to breed bettas at the age of 10 or so. Didn't succeed, but it was quite the excitement. :)

The momma has started changing her markings around. I've been slowly watching it for the past month or so. Her dorsal fin, which was all orange when I got her, has a ton of black spots on it now. Same with her anal fin. She has more orange on her body too, it seems to be spreading from her dorsal fin down into her body. And she has a lot of black on her body now too. It'll be interesting to watch just how much she changes.

She had an injury to her bottom lip after attacking and killing another female, but that's healed completely since she lives alone in a 2.5 now.

Ill get some pics of the babies in a few. They're hard to capture since they go crazy when they see me cause they're pigs lol.

The pic on the right, you can see two of the yellow ones, and the one in the very bottom right corner is my favorite baby, the one with the lipstick.
