First spawn! Steel Blue and red HM

OK so I finally got a successful spawn ( I have had successful spawns, but no fry), and now I have wigglers, 200 or more of them! SO HAPPY! I have included a picture of daddy, he isnt flaring to show his full potential, but mommy is literally identical in coloring and pattern, even though they are not related. I got the female from Bettas Rule off of here (bettascapes.com). SOOOO EXCITED! Will post pics of both parents as soon as she stops having stress stripes, and once he is removed from the tank.

Here is a video of them spawning -

he is an excellent father, and she was a great mom too, she added to the nest, and placed eggs in as well.

Here is a very good video of the wigglers and daddy tending to the nest, you can see more of his color in the video. I JUST uploaded this video so it may still be processing when you click on it - sorry

Here is Mommy - I named her Rain, she is young, I think Bettas Rule said she was 4 months old, sorry about the stress stripes, she HATED my flash! Her body is also the steel blue color normally.

Ya sure! The more fry that survive the better, I will only cull the ones with deformities or are sick, but then once they are old enough I will post lots of pics and let people pick some out, and let me know which ones they think are breeder quality vs pet quality vs should be culled.

UPDATE! Free swimming fry

Here is a video of the free swimming fry right before I removed daddy.

I netted him without netting fry, but he had one in his mouth, and I successully transferred that lil fry back into the tank with a spoon.

update on fry:

I had been a little worried alot of them were staying at the bottom of the tank, but this morning most of them are on top and swimming in the middle, I have only found 3 dead so far :) one had a strange shaped spine, so it died from a deformity, not from my error :) wish me luck!

Best of luck! Deformities happen, that is one reason they have sooo many babies.
