Smile Black Ice Butterfly Pair

After conditioning on live and frozen foods the past few weeks, setting up the tank, supplies, etc., placing the pair in the spawning tank and releasing the female--I have embracing and eggs!

Here is the male:





And the sibling female:



I'm hoping for some babies that look like the parents and maybe a few surprises .

Yes, it is pretty common practice to breed betta siblings together when trying to continue a certain "look" or line. And thanks, I certainly hope the fry are gorgeous.
