First spawn: Male Blue with red tips CT, Female PK Blue body, tail red/blue. some have called her a "gaint" is there such a thing.
When people view pics of her they thank she is a male PK.
Any way. this is my first spawn. I have breed may different types of animals and reptiles but never fish. After ALOT of research we set off.
First attempt was aborted because the male would not build a nest.
After reconditioning and resetting a new spawn tank, we went for #2
No nest again, so we tried releasing her without a nest. Bingo as soon as the courtship started the nest building began. for the next couple of hours it was Embrace, build embrace build.
once she seems to retreat, we removed her. then Dad went to work. Due to his poor nest building skills he had his work cut out for him.
He hung in there like a champ, after 36 hours and the first swimmers we removed him and he has been resting in him new tank. It is very true about separation anxiety in Bettas He moped around and would not eat for days. Now he is doing great though.
