Just a quick update tonight, I'm more tired than I thought I would be.
The babies are about 5 1/2 weeks old now and they are getting big! Almost all are Royal Blues (i have only a few that are turquoise like their father) but I have not seen any with red wash so that is a plus! Some I'm already seeing as keepers but I will be narrowing it down to the two best pairs and will be selling the rest or adopting out. After culling I am left with approximately 30-35 fry. I think this is a good size number for me to learn how to jar and to learn the growth process in jarred bettas.
Another peice of news I read is that if you see large differences in betta fry size you are not feeding enough (This is where I seem to have stumbled slightly with having some runts and some very large fry) so the babies are being fed more.
Lastly, an interesting note is Kanki has completely lost his butterfly pattern on his fins and is turning into a solid turquoise betta. Ill have to take an updated photo of him for you all to see
Pictures soon I promise! *Writes "Take Photos" on forehead*
