only a few nipped fins happened during the mating ritual, nothing that TLC and time can't fix. But this other thing happened really fast, overnight actually. Still have no idea what it is. :( :( :(

Hi Tenpaull

Very sorry to hear of the loss of your mother Betta.

Also sorry that I don't feel I have enough experience to help you with the problem you are describing. I do have a suggestion though. If you are not receiving a response to these new questions regarding the problem. Try posting it as a new topic. Include of course all the usual info about the tanks , size, water parameters, temp. etc. Hope this helps some.

Thank you for the update on the little ones, it is exciting to hear about there progress.

Day 9!

Went out of town for the weekend, had my househelp feed my fry
Noticed more than usual wrigglers in the water, siphoned them out.
removed some of theIndian Almond Leaves in the water, i feel like they are starting to degrade the water quality..
Siphoned out some stuff I believe to be infusoria, but not all.
Turned the sponge filter up a bit, i don't know why. haha!

As usual, the growth rate is very irregular. I heard males grow faster than females. If this is true, it's a good sign for me since there are more bigger fry than small ones ;)
Had a hard time with hatching BBS but managed to salvage some.Anybody know the right salinity level for hatching BBS? thank you!

That's all for now! :D I don't know if there are still people reading this thread though. haha! :))

P.S. I want to put a snail in the fry tank, would this be beneficial or detrimental to my fry? :D thanks!

Hi Tenpaull,

This is a web site I was on in the last couple of days, might be helpful ref. the brine shrimp hatching, www.sfbb.com.

The updates are fun, thanks for sharing. :)

Fry Update;
Was able to feed them BBS already and it looks great.
I rinse it with freshwater before feeding it though.
I refrigerate the leftovers, I read it slows down their metabolism so they will consume their yolk sacs slower. Making them viable for a nutritious consumption for a longer time :D
No significant amount of change in growth/size.
However, I have noticed the significant amount of irregularities in the growth of the different fry.
I am very excited to see them bigger haha!
My mom has a not so good vision and I can't wait to show the fries to her when it can be easily seen.
*FAST FORWARD 1 month!* :D:D:D
