The male is pretty small but im sure hes going tk bw growinf a bunch more. My hm marble is still growing after a month. I got him when he was three months old and he is now four months old and still growing.

The femle has long fins as well (from what i can see in the picture.) So their fry will moat likely be very longfinned. Thr only flaw i see on him is his anal fin, but that isnt too long so their fry wont all have bad anals. Nice pair.

Update: The nest dissolved a little and some baby images before he chased me off. Some of the fry are already free swimming :) I added a few micro worms and bbs because I worry. I also fed daddy he wanted just one bloodworm lol.

You're welcome. His bubblenest is very wide. Thats perfect for fry since it would be easy for them to get themselves back up.He sounds like a very good father.

He is being super good he leaves the free swimming fry but if one looks like need help he moves it back to the nest. And I will probably leave them for a month/ half month in there and move them to a 25 for growing.

This boy is an amazing daddy most of the fry are free swimming but he is still keeping up the nest. He also will pick fry up that have fallen to the bottom and put them in the java moss where it is easier for them to reach the surface its super cute XD I am going to start adding water tomorrow. I also learned not to trust the boyfriend with the micro worms I hate lumpy cultures cause the worms take forever to crawl up the sides and I have to pick worms out a few at a time :P

I agree. He isnt a bad candidate fora breeder. Im actually surprised that he is from a pet store. Im also surprised you got the female from a breeder. Its very opposite. He looks more like a breeder boy while she seems like shes supposed to be from the pet store.

The male really has changed and gotten pretty big. Very nice thickness and fin extension that you see. He almost looks like a way different betta. You did a good job by buying him and caring for him tk get back in good health.

I'll post a pic from when I first got him, you can see he's grown into quite a fish. And Popcorn is a genetic wildcard, all the breeder knew is her father, her mother must have came from a different breeder. She does have the double tail geneo along with a very light dragon scale

I have a local pet store that would love to have some offspring from the same city (save on shipping charges) so they've offered to buy any fish I cant find a home for myself. I plan on selling a few to friends and maybe keeping a couple but then it'll be out into the world. If i can even get them that far. I've had the worst luck with infertile eggs/egg eaters, and this is Dizzy's first spawn. I hope he'll be a good dada.
