Traditional Plakat spawn

First off I'd like to say Hi to everyone as I am new here. I have been reading the spawn logs and they look excellent. I am not new to bettas but just recently got back into them. Currently I have a 5star plakat pair, a wild imbellis pair, and a regular male plakat. I am from the land of 10,000 lakes

3/28/2014 - I conditioned my female Plakat in the spawn tank and the male in his individual tank. My original plan was to do a hybrid cross with my male imbellis and female plakat....lets just say things didn't go well for him. Luckily my male plakat was conditioned so today I threw him in the spawn tank with the female. Unlike with the male imbellis, the female showed little to no aggression to the plakat male, she just danced for him as he did for her. Almost immediately the male started his nest. They continue to show off, he chases her blah blah blah. Will upload pics soon. Both parents are traditional plakat colored (red and blue).

Thank you! and about the first try...I kind of thought it would end up that way considering the size difference between the imbellis and my plakats.

I will try the hybrid cross again but this time I will do a plakat male over a imbellis female. Should work...I hope..

4/1/2014 -- babies are free swimming now and dad is out. Unfortunately my microworms arent here yet. Guess the infusoria and the egg yolk will have to do.

Here's a better pic of dad.
