First spawn!

My silver mustard dragon and his gold dragon sib are in the process of spawning now. They had wrapped at least 15 times and were still at it when I came up to post this.

The mother is helping put the eggs in the nest. I truly had no idea how utterly, absolutely tiny betta eggs are. They are specks. I am completely daunted at the thought that I will have fry in a few days.

You can see the eggs in the bubble nest in the background of these photos.

Congratulations! That is really exciting - I'm hoping you can avoid speed bumps the rest of the way!

I happy clapped for you when you told me earlier, now I get to see the pictures! Squee!!!!

Congrats again! They did a great job, don't look too beat up :) You did a great job too! I see you did the bubblewrap under the leaf trick - it works great :D

So happy for you! In 2 days or so you'll start seeing them falling from the nest.. daddy should be picking them up and placing them back in. It's so fascinating watching them grow from little specks to adult size.. <3 it!

Congrats Deanna!!

How old are your pair? How long did you leave them in the spawn tank before that started to spawn? Did you disturb or feed them during the time inside the spawn tank?

I'm trying to spawn a pair of sib (both virgins) but nothing yet. They're around 6 months old.
