Ok, so it looks like there's maybe about 40 eggs. I took Aqua out because I suspect he is eating them, so we'll see how they do. Here is some photos of the chasing/spawning process.

Update:

During the night about ten? eggs fell from the nest. (Probably from the dog rooting around on the bed next to the dresser that the tank is on) Anyways, so I siphoned them into a little betta cup with some water and floated them in the tank. Some of them float, some sink, and one of the ones that sinks is about the twice the size of the other eggs. There are still a nice amount in the nest.

Well good luck on what you have left I want you to know that Im post-stalking you because I hope to be breeding very soon. I want to do a little more research. Also I dont want to start breeding Until I can find a very good pair. Is it normal to have abnormal egg sizes?

Good to see I have post-stalkers. I'm not sure about the egg sizes--but I did spot another large one, and I accidently ruined about 10.

The first thought that came to my mind was "OMG they could be giants!" then I remembered that breeders cant tell they are giants for awhile...plus Ive never seen a giant that was not plakat

lol actually I've been checking on the eggs fairly often, and to me it almost looks like the ones that are larger (one was ruined) look like they might be hatching. I'm not sure, I've never watched that close before, but it looks like that might be the case.

It would be really interesting to actually watch them hatch! I'd be sitting next to my betta tank with a bag of popcorn for hours. So what colors are you hoping for out of this breeding? Who do you think you will be using for your next spawn?
