My Giant dragon bettas just spawned!!

Ok so this will make either the 3rd time I have tried this pair, they are both Giants, or half giants im not sure, daddy is 3.5 inches red dragon HMPK and mommy is a 3.0 inches black and red dragon Halfmoon, they are both quite thick bodied and very hardy, and strong, and they eat twice as much as my other bettas. The first try daddy didnt move the eggs or keep them clean, they fell from the nest, and only a couple hatched and quickly died, either because of bacteria, or because of the water temp. which i didnt realize was 85 degrees plus, maybe they were not all fertilized. Then the second time I tried he ate the eggs, so I am uploading a video of them spawning now on youtube. here is the link to the video

Thanks guys, i thinkk there are only about 50-100 eggs, but i am most excited about this spawn, i already have 200+ free swimmiing fry from another spawn, so ii am going to be one busy bee if these eggs survive.

Your female look more like a short tail then a long tail
But I can be wrong tho
Giant
Still addictive to them
Down side
Bottomless pit when theyre babies(you'll be surprise how much they eat
Larger size tank
Upside
Grow very fast( 1 1/2-2 month theyre the same size as there smaller cousin)
Very easy to switch off food(fry not picky eater)

Anal fin
Hmpk n Pk have short fin to start to end
Hm have a longer one to start and end
After a few year of breeding
My guess is kind of correct
Without knowing the background
Yeah if you breed those two and get some short tail male
She a cross from a hmpkxhm
Hm giant is really expensive

I got her when she was about 5 months old, she wasnt overly large then, but siince then (3 months) She has grown like a weed, i wouldnt mind either way i still love her. I would say she was 2.5 inches when i got her and she may be biigger then 3 inches now

Will keep on trying to breed that pair
Gaint tend not to live as long as there smaller version
Thats good size for a female
Anything bigger then 3" is breeding quality for size
I know how fast they grown
My last Gaint batch hit 3" in 3 month
