eggs!

Hi Hi!

Just thought I would share with you my second breeding attempt is going great! It is with two different bettas this time, blue HMs, in the same set up, 40l lots of plants.

I bought the female yesterday from a friend of mine that breeds bettas. Put her in the breeding tank the same day, and as soon as she saw the male she got vertical bars! She was already fat with eggs.

About 2 hours ago I released her, (the male didnít have much of a nest but I have been told that if he isn't building one, releasing the female might encourage him) and 10 minutes later they were embracing! They are still going, and there are lots of eggs. Somehow he has managed to find space for the eggs in his virtually nonexistent bubblenest.

I'm so excited!!

Pics to follow :)

Congrats.......I had a male that would just put a bubble or two around the eggs and let them float until after they completed the spawn and then he would gather them all up and make a nice nest for them. Had one that just let the eggs float all over the tank too and still had a pretty good clutch survive......good luck...can't wait for pic.....

This is my male, Sulley



This is Sulley eyeing up the female, unnamed



This is them embracing! :D:D

My male is making some bubbles now and the the female has been removed. He hasn't noticed that he has some eggs sitting on the floor yet. There is about 8. Should he eventually notice them? This is way too exciting. Shame I have to leave him to it soon to go for my Sunday dinner!

Update- Sulley is being such a good daddy! Picking up the eggs and putting them in the nest. I can't wait till I get home from work when they are due to start hatching :D
