I can't tell how many fry. They are "hair stage" today. Dad made two bubble nests--one inside the cup and one to the side of it. I can see the side ones better. He's been busy, running all around. So, I have two successful breeds, thus far.

And, now..for my new baby, who came with a free female, but I don't have a picture..she is white, with red, white and green tint on her fins. Here here is and is happily is in his new 5 gallon tank:

Males pattern is messy but with that female who knows what colours they will be. Anal is a tad bit long and the male has a step in his dorsal. Female has red wash. Both have decent ventrals. This other male has poor finage in web rediction, they arenot clean cut, and he also has a bad step in his dorsal. But really nice ventrals

I got them on ebay from a breeder. I am not looking to show. I love the breed and enjoy working with them. And, without wanting to show, or sell as show quality, I think they are all gorgeous fishies. :)

I appreciate your help and criticism. I am not trying to show. I am actually making sure I research and learn to breed, as well as take the best care of my bettas as possible. I am doing well, I feel, with breeding. My next step, once I learn more, is to maybe show. I am not sure if that is a step I want to do next.

I am looking forward to this batch of fry as, I have watched my first batch grow and they have come along amazingly. No deaths..I hope I can say the same for this one as, there appears to be three times as much. :)

TY for your help. It's appreciated.
