Amazing new male

I got a copper hm male imported with two random females and i put a red traditional plakat female in and they spawned about 200-250 eggs and
then for an unkown reason i put a black orchid crowntail female in a jar and placed her in the tank. The male flared and swam to the nest then i waited for him to do it again and when he did let the female out and she swam and nibbled his side and he turned and they embraced and there has to be at least another 400 eggs in the nest and the female is still just a little plump i guess its cause hes not an aggresive male.

I knew a breeder who almost always breed two females to one male while breeding, it's really interesting :)

yeah but i have live bloodworms and even mosquito larvae growing so i just have to hatch lots of bbs but im guessing with so many the tank is gonna get dirty fast so im putting them in a 50 gal breeder in about 2-3 weeks and see what i get and a petstore already wants 300 for $250!!! i emailed them and they aswered me today and i immediatly send back "its a deal"
Even though ill just buy more bettas with it lol.

thats a great idea and i jar mine at six weekes because i prefer to quickly raise my fry by feeding in increments of every 2 hours in small portions.
