1st Spawn - Blue Marble x Blue Grizzle HMPK

So excited!
Pictures of the parents are Aquabid Photos.
Female has changed a bit; her fins have grown and she can reach a ful 180 spread.
Spawned on July 1st, was a pretty quick spawn :)
However, I freaked out when I saw the male lying on his side underneath his bubblenest looking very bloated. I made the mistake of attempting to artificially hatch the eggs. I separated the eggs into a floating dish and 2 floating betta cups.
The eggs began hatching around 9PM July 2nd.
However, when I was checking I made the stupid mistake of covering the tank..... I think there might be around 10 moving fry.
There were some fry trying to swim around in one of the cups this morning. In the other cup, the fry hatched but aren't moving... Are fry usually so still? X]
Thank you to everyone that has been so helpful!!

Fry are really inactive for the first day or two, don't worry. That's a beautiful pair you have and I'm sure you will end up with some amazing looking babies! By the way a female I'm getting could be your females sister- http://www.bettafish.com/album.php?a...ictureid=66762

Fry

They have not started free swimming. I see about 7 or 8 living fry and at least two of them are deformed (Maybe the female was still pretty young?). Today I used a syringe and sucked up the dead fry and eggs. Most of them died due to fungus, my mistake of removing the dad, and leaving the tank uncovered overnight. *Sigh* Hopefully they will start free swimming soon!

I will be reconditioning the female (Luckily she didn't have any serious wounds only 1 or 2 missing scales) and trying her out with another male. I have so much time on my hands it's not even funny lol. Still some summer work from school, but definitely enough time for two spawns! :)

*Edit: What color would the fry be if I bred the female to this male? *This is not the male I am planning to try her out with. I'm still learning color genetics lol. Mostly blue, but would they be grizzle like her?

That looks like a male lol. Possibly a male with ovipositor. The grizzle pair is nice. :)

Edit: I misread it. I thought you said breed the grizzle male to this female lol.

Free Swimmers!

Oh lol. Haha

Update:
I see 2-3 free swimmers! It's hard to tell the apart lol. I see one of the deformed fry still moving, not free swimming yet and no signs of movement from the other one. Though he/she might be resting x]
It's so hard to get a picture of them. They are so tiny, but cute.

This is Castiel and Prim flirting

Here's a video of Castiel and Prim spawning. The best shot is around the middle of the video.
