monster copper/red orange hmpk ♂ x yellow dragon koi hmpk ♀

successful spawn yesterday, appx 24 hours of introduction. decided to utilize a plastic shoebox container this time around as it will make controlled feedings much easier to deal with. shoebox has matured water with java moss--water is teaming with microinverts ranging from paramecium to daphnia, so should be well off for feeding for the first two weeks.

decent number, maybe 150? diligent father, way better than dinkus. hoping to receive kids similar to another project, but this time with white faces. AND NO LONG FINS!

male and female were both from the same breeder, but different lines most likely. female is Dinkus's sister.

kids are two days old, smaller batch than originally thought, but that could be due to my limited viewing (i cant see the nest well)

hilarious sidenote-- daphnia in the tank are slightly smaller than the fry and are gray colored. papa's been catching them and placing them in the nest along with the fry. lol.

That's funny, can't seem to tell the difference between his kids and food. Hope he figures out soon. Do you have any photos of him and the mother?

everyone went to bed...everyone woke up...nobody died. ;)

pics of the fry, and their shoebox home--



typical spawning setup--the honeymoon suite; spared no expense.

@teal: as you can see-- spawning bettas is easier than you think; no need for large tanks for the actual spawning event, just enough cover for the female to hide. Kids will be transfered out to a larger tank when they reach 7.5 mm.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. I got an eight gallon storage container, mostly so there'd be enough space to house the fry.

here's another common question: how much live food is necessary to keep the fry alive for the first 3 weeks?

i apologize for the vertical phone display and the EDM. when i decided to download movie editor, it turns out it's no longer supported. no excuse for the EDM though. :P

im guestimating that the food supply should be good for at least 2 weeks...
