Spawn Log: Levi (Blue Grizzle Butterfly Veiltail) x Skylark (Turquoise Veiltail)

So I found a girl today that I fell in love with that I'm going to breed to Levi, and start my own show line of veiltails This will be my Spawn Log where I will keep track of exactly how the spawns going and what I'm doing.

1/7/09 - Have both bettas in a divided 10 gallon tank, I will be conditioning them in the tank together so they can see eachother. Once the female has filled with eggs and the male has a nest I will release her. It will probably take a week, or 2 for her to be ready and well conditioned.

Here is the divided tank, the temp is set at 82 degrees. I will lower the water level to about 4 inches a day before I release her.


Here is Levi




And this is Skylark

okay first let me ask you how do you plan to lower the water level to 4" without destroying the males bubblenest? Nice female by the way it kinda looks like she has faint breeding stripes already

Right now Im just conditioning them. When the time is ready I'll take out the divider, put her in a breeding vase and lower the water level, and give him something to build his nest under :)

but the point of the divider is so you dont have to use a hurricane globe/breeders box

Nothing really new to report! Skylark with have breeding bars one hour and stress stripes the next, so I think she's still unsure about whats going on. Levi has a small bubblenest in the back which makes me happy, I know that he's interested. There are a lot of silk plants right now mostly blocking their view of eachother. I am strictly conditioning them right now, feeding them a high protein diet of bloodworms, brineshrimp, and hikari betta bio-gold pellets.
