Moon River Bettas Fall Spawns

I figured I'd just lump all my spawn logs together to save space... I'll mainly be updating with pictures anyways so there's no need for multiple logs.

I have one spawn that hatched today and two more planned.

The first spawn is a Multicolor HM spawn. Both parents are from Martinismommy but are unrelated so this is an F1 spawn (which gives me a LOT of room to play around).

This pair was put together over the weekend and hatched today. It is a very large spawn... at least 100 wigglers. My goal is 30 adults but I'll be happy with at least 10.

I'll be referring to this spawn as spawn #1.

Here's a picture of the pair. The one of the female was taken today so there's a little damage still, the one of the male was the auction pic taken by the breeder.



The next two spawns planned are:

-A marble HM pair (again from Martininsmommy but unrelated)
-An HMxDT pair, I haven't decided what male I'll use yet but the female is a blue DT bred by Dragonlady.

Yay! I'm glad you got a spawn out of the female I sent you...You should get some gorgeous babies from them. Hopefully you get some big dorsals like the one momma has. Who are the breeders for the marble HM pair?

I'm not sure yet. I have a marble female who I'm going to use and her sibling brother or another marble HM (who is the sibling to that green boy in the picture). Both have minor fin rot right now so once that's under control I'll start conditioning all three and see who'll make a better match. I also have a marble male from dragonlady but he's not doing so hot right now :(. I don't know what's wrong with him.. just totally lethargic.

I also want to do something with the steel girl you sent me. GAH.. so many fish so little time!

I'm glad to hear you have some betta spawns coming up. I am very sad to hear about some of the boys acting lethargic. About a month ago, I had to medicate a few fish acting lethargic in my fishroom. It looked like velvet. Quick cure worked to treat whatever it was, and they are back to their spunky self.

Hmm.. I'll try out the quick cure. It's just the past week or so he's been acting more and more lethargic. He'll eat and move around a little but mostly he lies on the bottom of his jar. I've got to get flashlight batteries today so I can get a good look at him to see if he has any velvet on him.

Removed the male yesterday (Aug 26th). He was not happy about it and is still a little stressed.

Today I counted 60 fry... and that was just want I could see from the front of the tank. Its a very big spawn.

Right now I'm feeding frozen BBS, starting live BBS tonight. My cultures all crashed over the summer so I don't have any smaller foods, we'll see how they do on the BBS and if needed I can order a culture of microworms.
