Talking Giant Monster HMPK's Spawning Vids

Trying not to get my hopes up that fry will survive the 3 days, dad ate the eggs last time (probably not fertilized, there weren't many and she was a half giant) and right now mom is hounding him after he picks up eggs to wrap again, not giving him time to put them up so I'm worried he'll eat them again, I guess we'll just see! Regardless I thought you might enjoy the videos :)

I used the shock method with help from OFL, they've been together for about two days and starting spawning tonight. In the second video you can see her hounding him, it's kinda weird!

Please note she doesnt have a single torn fin... This male is so gentle. I need a sweet sounding name for him if anyone has a good idea for one :)

The set up is a 10 gal filled to about 8 gallons with live and fake plants and tanned water. The first video was when they really got practicing, otherwise they've been at it pretty consistently for hours, she just started releasing eggs about 20 mins ago. These bettas were bred by Rattanaporn in Thailand. Enjoy!

Wow, just went to check and see if they were still going...They are and now she's dropping like 20 eggs at a time instead of 3 or 4 like initially. Exciting!

Congrats, hope all goes well this time.

I spawned another 2 pair -
1. a green pair (very young) but I see some free swimming fry today.
2. Blue gigantic guy who would only spawn to light colors - ate the eggs.

Now we compare notes........ well later...

Be sure to feed them frequently and try to get them grow 4cm during the first 2 months...... I failed - mine only grew to about 3.5 - 3.7 (ave. largest)

Congrats on the spawn they look great!!

If you don't feed them enough to grow 4cm in the 2 month period, does that mean they won't grow to their full potential?

Just checked the nest, still see a few eggs and dad is just sitting under it looking super bored and tired!

I'm going out of town now, so I'll hopefully see some fry when I come back Sunday.
