HM Pineapple spawn

My first spawn didn't turn out so well as the father was an egg eater and I had to quickly learn about artificial hatching techniques. But this spawn was most definitely different. With a pair I got from polukoff, I have about 40 babies. This father did great! He was very attentive and possibly a little overbearing, lol.

I couldn't get very good pics, sorry. My iphone just doesn't have such good quality. Now there's something worthwhile to learn- taking good betta pics! I have another spawn going. Or at least I'm conditioning my fishies for one. It's a HMDT to HM.

I forgot to mention that the babies hatched on 20 January. When can you see the ventral and dorsal fins?

Every time I look in their tank, one of the little guys comes up to the glass. The only reason I know it's him is he has a rip/nip in his tail and he's so big compared to the rest. I'm thinking he ripped it on some of the decorations or wood I have in there. Then there's this itty bitty tiny baby. He looks like he was hatched only a few days ago.

I was gone a week, traveling for work. When I returned, I only had one baby dead. IDK what happened but I'm thinking they didn't get fed as often as they should have. The water had not been changed. ARGH! I'm warming water in preparation for water changes right now. But anyways, they're still growing. I have some disparity in size and am going to get a second 10 gal ready to separate the larger ones from the smaller ones. The babies will be 5 weeks old tomorrow.
