Glad there are still eggs. They will probably still survive, even if they sink to the bottom. The little bit of salt won't hurt at all... If anything it will help ward off fungi and bacteria.

After you turned off the current did the male go right back to work collecting and organizing?

Out of my first 3 attempts I have 4 teeny bettas.
I know it's hard to not - but don't stress it. Worst case scenario - you wait a few weeks and try again.

;D I just set up a couple of pairs for spawning. LOL, hopefully I'll get more then 4.

Riverotter - I almost know the feeling. I've only got about 20 swimming around from my first spawn, which happened to also be attempt number 3.

However, whether I had 3 or 200, I think my determination to get them all to adulthood would be about the same.

The male is incredibly excited this morning and gets agitated when I try to take close-up pictures of the nest, but I don't see any tails hanging down, and he's maybe moved the eggs up higher in the bubble wrap, because I don't see them again either.

I would say if he's still tending the nest, you're good. :) I'm sure you'll see little fry swimming around soon enough!

I hope so! He's very industriously doing something; I just don't know what. :)

He really does seem to be a good dad. He isn't as human-centered as my other male (Courtland--the boy in my avatar) is, but his instincts seem amazing.

That's great! My 2 spawns were complete failures. In the first one, the male got too bloated from eating the eggs, so no fry. In the second one, the same male was to weak to take care of the eggs by the second day and there were fry/eggs scattered every where. 7 survived and still haven't reached the free swimming stage at 5 days. Good luck on your spawn!
