Congrats! :D Sounds like everything went... swimmingly... I'll never do that again, just so you know. Puns don't suit me.

Haha, Thanks! xD Yeah....counting the eggs was a little harder then I expected, and it looks almost like he'd clumped the eggs in a little pile in one corner of the nest....which make it harder xP Anyway, I DO have this picture of the eggs and nest that I just took...



Not a lot I don't think....but, yeah, I fail at estimating...I'm still leaning towards 40ish...though perhaps someone with a more experienced eye can give me a better estimate...xD

Well if you didnt already know bettas tend to clump there eggs in one section of the nest which makes it easier to take care of. and they let go of the other part of the nest and focus on a smaller area. well 40 is a good first spawn

Ahh, now that I didn't know....I can never find really good in depth, more detailed info like that. All I can find are the descriptions/pictures of the breeding process and how to feed and raise fry.....and while all that is good information, I wish I could find a little more...xP

I'd say there are at least 50.

unlike the knobbed porgy (a fish form CA to the west indies I did a report on it) it lays eggs at the surface, and provides no parental care there afterward. anyway it looks like 40-60 to me

usually fish that lay eggs and dont attend to them lay so many eggs that the chances of them all dying is very rare and thus only the strongest ones survive, and this creates a strong species and this also helps evolution progress
