okay so i got home from work today with babies lots and lots of babies. I would estimate at least 300 + they are falling from the nest like crazy and the male is going frantic but they are not swimming horizontally yet so i have not yet removed the male. They are so much smaller than i last remembered. I plan to feed them egg yoke for the first bit and then bbs

Thanks, if all survive this will be a big spawn however very rarely do all survive, the male is being very diligent with the fry but he just doesnt have time to care for all his young, hopefully most of them will survive and from what i can see all the ones on the ground are still living.

Live, beta fry only respond well to live food, so i plan to hatch them in a hatchery. I will be getting the bbs eggs from my Homes Alive Pet Centre which is one of my local fish stores, then i will hatch them and feed to fry after they are 7 days old

Well i dont have any major pet stores around me but i would think that they would have some. like you will need to buy eggs and then hatch them yourself, i use the "shrimpery" by the San Fransisco company and it works great i have two units going at a time. Well when do you plan to breed them? cause that would be cool and if your male is ready then i think you should be ready to go. Well i post alot to help solve ppls breeding problems, i try and help thats all

I plan to breed them when I get the stuff to do so. probably around new years


did you cycle your tank before breeding? if so how did you do it? I still have no idea how to cycle? if not what did you do then?
