Finally got my first spawn going. I havnt breed bettas in over 15 years, so, here is my first spawn since then. Its looking good so far. The pair spawned on 6/13/11. Looks like I have 200+ fry in the tank.
The pair is from martinismommy which I purchased from aquabid. The male is a marble halfmoon. Female is a halfmoon also. She got beat up pretty bad during courtship, but, is doing very well now in the community tank.
Daddy guarding the new nest and eggs.
Daddy busy tending to new hatchlings. He was a lazy father. He was very slow at picking up fry on the floor. Thank god I went with a bare bottom floor. Nevertheless, I have a high survival rate............so far :)
New free swimming fry hiding in java fern and eating microworms.
Anyways, wish me luck.
