So like the title says, this is my first breeding attempt after literally a year of researching :) so excited! I have kept many bettas, males and females, ever since I got into fish.
This is my male, Mike, HM with purple/copper colour (old damage to fins)
This is my Female, Petal, SD with all sorts of random colours
Both bought from E-bay from reputable breeders
This is my set up for breeding, slightly on the small side compared to others but it will do the job. 40 litre tank, 50w heater, sponge filter, almond leaf, polystyrene and some plantage :D and yes, that is litres, not gallons. Iím no good at conversions!
I have been conditioning for 1 week, but pretty sure they didnít need any longer as they have been fed on high protein food for like forever. So Mike went into the tank a few days ago and I have just put Petal in and he instantly started trying to build a bubble nest. He isnít very good at it!
She will be released tomorrow, so I have all weekend to keep an eye on them :)
The only thing I may have a problem with (I think) is Mike being too small to wrap around Petal. But I have a bigger male ready. I just wanted to give him a chance cuz I love his colour!
So yea. Exciting stuff :)
Thank god for my bfs camera skills :) I see you all like photos!
