Mum and fry

Sorry for the lower quality pictures. I only have paint on my new laptop and so it isn't very good.

Anyway here are some updated shots of my Betta persephone fry and their mum. Dad is in his PVC pipe with I think another nest. I saw them fighting earlier today which is a key part in their courtship ritual haha












The second lot of fry that have been born up at the surface. Have around 15-20 of these.

Fry are living in the tank with mum and dad. They get fed MW, Grindal worms and I am about to start hatching BBS as well. I do a 25% water change every second day and the oldest are just under a month old. Wilds grow painfully slower than splendens so they are not very big at all.

Ohh my gosh... so cute! Mum looks nice and healthy. :)

These fish are breeding like bunnies! Yet they're on the 'critically endangered' list in their native home - just goes to show what impact habit destruction has.

Thanks for the pics - I'm a fan of these little guys.

Mum was angry that I had dared to put a light over the tank and had not fed her so she kept interrupting my photo taking of the fry.

Yeah this whole complex has bred really easily for me and it's good too as they usually do not eat their fry.

I'm about to do a big overhaul of my wild tanks (except the persephone) next week so that should be funnn haha
