Anyways... to the point....

I do not know if any one told you this and I am pretty sure some one did or you already know... but ... with my breeding the Half Imbellis... He seems to be able to care for his fry longer than the regular Domestic bettas... inwhich they say that they eat their fry about 3 days after hatching...

I kept the Half male Imbellis with his Babies for about a week after his eggs hatched... The female was also a half bred Imbellis though I tool her out since he was destroying her finnage... But I think that Imbellis, since they are near wild most of the time.. still caring the wild breeding strain of caring for there fry untill the fry can run away by its self...

NOTE: During the half imbellis's care for his eggs to hatching i still fed him regularly with live larvae and bloodworms... Still he acted normal... catching his fry and spitting them back near the nest... though I did see that some fry (instinct) ran away from him... yet he didnt eat them he jus caught them and threw them back up near the nest...

Ofcourse he prob ate like two - five but still I have this sense that Imbellis wilds will take care of there fry at a longer rate compared to the domesticated Betta that everyone talks about. : P
Thanks for your tips. Its good that you feed him too but it me i dont really want to feed him also due to tank dirtying the tank because they frys are going to stey in there for a while. But i guess it just depends on the breeders i guess

Your welcome... OH well that makes logical sense.. why alot of my fry died... and also prob due to the green water that was depleting O2.... (I didn't have a small airstone in there till later).... also could be from weak fry aswell... I only have 5 now... out from like 50-100... that hatched...

Yeh.... ok keep up with your idea.. lol.. Goodluck...
