Red face Aiden X Sweety

YAY!!! I have eggs from Aiden and Sweety!!! They started spawning at midnight last night and I seperated them at 10 this morning. Aiden is doing a great job looking out for his eggs. I'm so proud of him. Not sure how many eggs are there though. Sweety had little fin damage and is already pretty much healed up.

Aiden is a red crown tail with dark blue shine to his scales on his body and has black tipped rays. Sweety is a dark bodied girl with light red fins.

Now for some pics(well the best I could get with my camera)

1st- Aiden (best pic of him when I first got him lol he wouldnt hold still)
2nd- Sweety (couple days after I got her. she is a darker color now)
3rd-Top view of the nest with eggs (even if you cant see eggs they are there )
4th- Bottom view with Aiden guarding

She looks like a PK female to me. I hope everything works out for you. :)

I agree, She looks like a PK or possibly a combtail to me. Which is good because it will give you a higher chance of a lot of CT's maybe even CTPK.

Wow, You are so lucky! it must have costed you alot of money to breed them! From what I learned, it can cost quiet a pretty penny to breed them.

update: I cant tell if there is any babies yet but I think I saw him blow one back into the nest. He is doing a great job keeping them in the nest if there are any there. I hope there is. He is keeping guard under his nest so that tells me there must be something there.


@betta novice- Yes I know most people dont breed pet store bettas. I've researched and tried to breed for almost 2 years now and I thought I'd try to spawn pet store bettas first. This is my third successful spawn. My first didnt produce eggs, the second the babies didnt make it to free swimming, and now I'm hoping they make it. Got my micro worms and vinigar eels ready to go.

@bettaxfishxcrazy & 1fish2fish- Thanks and that's great if she is a combtail or plakat. Only time will tell if these babies are and will make it.

@Jakr959- Thanks and yes it was a lot but thankfully I have a great family who supported and helped me out when I needed something.

@dramaqueen- Thanks I need it lol

update: I know there is at least one baby in the nest now. YAY!! Aiden had tried to blow it in the nest but he didnt really succeed but that baby got itself back into the nest by itself. I think these babies are going to make it. Aiden is being such a good daddy. I'm soooo proud of him.
