I really like the coloring on both of the fish (especially the male). Hopefully they figure out whats going on soon and you get some fry, who will no doubt grow into gorgeous adults.

Beautiful pair and I love the females little spot. I love plakats I think long fin betta are pretty when flaring but tend to look a little frumpy in general plus the tail biting headaches that can accompany them. Cant wait to see how the fry will turn out.

I cancelled this spawn and tried with a different female since the blue girl just wasnt keen. I'm using blackies copper sister, shes nothing special but a bit nicer than the other copper girl I was going to use for him. Right now they are wrappimg and Ive seen 2 eggs fall out
Ill try and get a pic of them

I'll probably use this one since I'm lazy and the only real difference is the colour of the female. I'll try and get a pic of her once shes recovered a bit. She managed to take a few chunks out of the males fins

Blackie has a full nest of eggs but hes not a very attentive father, just wandering around the tank instead of tending to his eggs. He better not decide to eat them when they hatch

Ive always wanted to try the artificial hatching method. The eggs have hatched this morning and the fry havent been eaten so I think this male is trustworthy though

But is he doing anything? If he is meandering around without a care in the world, personally I would take him out but I have never bred bettas so take my opinion with a grain of salt. Betta safe salt of course

Luckily his instincts kicked in when they started hatching . I think he was pretty clueless and was mainly wandering around to see if the female was still in his tank and to do a bit of begging for food.
Since theyve hatched he tends to stay under the nest, much to my relief!
I always get nervous when the fry are about to hatch since all it takes is one idiot father to destroy the entire spawn
