yes it is, and one of your first ?'s, the fry should be marble, unless the parents have other color genes in their cromosones, otherwise IDK, expiriment around, oh and Mr. V is back so he might give an explination about genetics

@ Lethbridge - things usually come with experience, so I figured it would be harder the first time.

@ k stiles - I would like to know their Genetics, but it would be pretty cool to get a surprise spawn I guess. He is back, I saw him around this board :3 Maybe, lol.

Also, as an update I guess, I cannot get the sponge filters until at least December 31st, and the extra BBS until January 6th, as told by Amazon.com. So I have to maybe try to spawn on a weekend now, unless they come earlier, before break ends.

Don't be surprised if it doesn't work the first time.

Yeah, but if it doesn't, I will re-condition them and try again. I am praying that all goes well, though xD

I have another question, haha. Can you not keep a filter in the fry tank for the first week, and then add it? I was researching on different methods of breeding, and saw this {http://www.iaza.com/work/091227C/Betta_snipping_copy45570.png} from this site { http://www.najrickbettas.com/breeding_bettas.htm }

And I figured if it would be okay to do tat I would spawn sooner, because my Filters still have to ship here. I have enough BBS to last a while, or until my order comes, but I do NOT want to screw this up haha. My girl, who still has no name, is so stripped, and she looks so cute with her big, round belly ;D

Maybe you can add one after they become free swimming. I've read that having one will disturb the nest. MrVampire and Lethbridge can tell you what they do.

Alrighty, thanks dq! You are such great help :D

They should come about the time they would be free swimming, give or take a day I guess.
