Hehe, at this point I think Oldman is hoping the fry hang in there for a while so he doesn't have to keep chasing them down.

xD Good morning!
Hes moving a bit slow but still picking up the little ones, they seem to better be able to push themselves back into the nest today, i see them fall alittle then shoot back up, but some still keep falling ALL the way down, more hatched overnight and id say theres around 100 or so tiny tails hanging down at least. Cant wait till they freeswim so i can give him a rest. I really expected that, with his age/past care hed be no good at this, hed eat them all as they spawned or be too tired to care for fry, i never expected him to follow this all the way through.

What an amazing guy! You must be so proud of him. And it's simply amazing how fast the fry develop.

@Punki; I assume "oldman" is old. Be sure to "recondition" him once you take him out of the fry tank with lots of high protein food and keep him in a more shallow tank ... just in case.

Congrats on your success.

lol! It was a bit odd though, when spawning was done, instead of Electra running when he nipped she suddenly fought back, trying to get HIM away from the nest. She also constantly put the fallen eggs into the nest. It was almost as if she wanted to do all the nest work, maybe she thought he was too old also XD
Today i ordered some decapped brine shrimp, i have live atm but in 1-2 weeks id like them to start transitioning to some nonlive foods mixed in (decapped bs), hoping this will make them accept pellets later, since they wont wiggle and move. So i was thinking i could mix those with the live feedings since they arent "live" (but super nutritious) and get them used to eating when i drop food, not just when it wiggles. So far, so good today :)

indjo yes hes a walmart betta who i assume was about 8m-1yr when i got him and ive had him 5 months so hes past his prime so to speak, and the cup care at walmart probobly wasnt the best so i dont expect him to live a full 3-6 years but id be happy if he did :) He'll be put into a 3g with a touch of salt and lots of live foods. Poor guy will be starving. but half filling it is a good idea for a few days, thanks for that. I did Electra like that, shes in a 2g half filled atm.
