My grandmother makes and AWESOME green bean casserole! I always eat a crap ton of it when she makes it.

My new piggy is still working out her place with Ms. Piggy. But there's less dominance activity among the 2 of them now.

I suppose we're having pizza tonight....

Haha I thought he had a growth or something on his head. Poor male is getting rather flustered now as this is his first time and now his fry have hatched he has been a lot busier.

All fish will eat infertile eggs.

I meant free-swimming fry. Since wild bettas aren't aggressive, do they leave free-swimming fry alone? Or are they like platys and guppies who eat their own fry regardless.

Some do and some don't. Depends on the individual parents. Right now most of my fish seem to fall into the 'don't' category.

Generally the biggest threat to newly free-swimming fry is older siblings. They will go in and destroy entire nests as soon as the father is distracted.
