it is very cute i never thought it would be like this
I could kill right now for a good camera lol
Balthazar is steadily working on two nests and looks like he trying for a third in the far corner lol i guess to compensate for when im cleaning the tank and the nests get destroyed during the process.
Boy does time ever seem to take forever to go by and yet seems to be too fast lol

hahaha... well in the very beginning yes both males were in the tank along with the females. Aztec had built a nest in one corner and Balthazar formerly Bala had built a nest in the opposite corner i had asked about it and acouple members mentioned that some females would built nests so i thought well then there shouldnt be too much to worry about just keep a close eye on them. The next morning i seen eggs so i removed all of them then felt bad so i returned Balthazar aka Pops and since then he has been taking care of all the fry lol
I had seen stripes on two of the four females so i assume they were the mothers lol the other two are smaller and and didnt really so much interest in the goings on of the others lol they mostly hung out in the neutral territory zone or at the bottom if they werent at the top. So now all females are in a new 10gal. so far thats all that has happened besides the usual feeding and cleaning of the fry tank lol

sorry if i repeat myself

and yes i did destroy afew nests during cleaning and he manages rebuild like a good little trooper

Its funny watching him prowling around the tank collecting fry and popping them back into the nests only for them to wriggle off as he heads off again


maybe im alittle obsessed lately as i have been dreaming about betta fry for the past week
oh well it has been fun watching them

This is so awesome! Two spawns in one tank. I suppose you didn't see the spawning? Or do you know who was breed to who?

Good luck with the babies! I'm sure they'll all be gorgeous!
I'm wondering if it's possible for them to "switch partners" mid spawn? Then you'd have like 4 different spawns!

Wow that's crazy! You're so lucky you got spawn instead of injured fish!

its entirely probable that there was cross fertilization of eggs between the pairs, expect a lot of variation, watch for special tails XD
