Hi Vicky, thank you. My fries are now big. They eat MW. Do you remember when you feed with decapsulated bbs egg, do decap eggs float or sink?

Decaps float. That's why is better to use bbs first and then switch them to decaps.
I feed bbs with a light on in the tank and mix with decaps. Fry will eat both eventually and you will be able to reduce the amount of bbs in each feeding until you're only feeding decaps.
You can start at one week, I usually start a day or two earlier depending on the progress of the fry.

I really like the silverish blue colored one.

So bettas from the same spawn are okay with bare floored tanks?

I keep the bare floored so I can easily cleanup. I clean about 2-3 times a week. I use floating plant for hiding place. I have so much gravel but it is so hard to clean gravel completely.

Bare floor let me clean really clean and keep them healthy. I may be wrong. But I can keep it cleans very nicely.

They were little stress because they just got moved from my living room to the kitchen :)

The silverish blue/green and VT are two from two different spawns.

The rest of female are from the same spawn.

Do you have to keep the leaves of the bamboo out of the water?

And are those philodendron in the water too?

How interesting!

8'm glad they are getting along well!

Hi BettaQi

All my lucky bamboo are fine just lay underwater for 6 months now. I think it is ok. But if I keep the lucky bamboo up vertically, they do grow very good even under water.

For the philodendron I have been stick them into water (vase) for the last 15 years, and they are just fine. If you want them to grow, you need to keep their head above water (below).





I have been using philodendron in my spawn tanks too; they are fine. Fishes are fine.
