Talking my first spawn (maybe log)

i had conditioned them for 2 weeks. today i was cleaning my room and my pair where spawning . i bred a VT female "strawberry":



and my older brother's male HM i have no pics of him yet.

soon i will upload the video of them and get a photo of the male but am just soo happy!! i can't believe it. no one had faith in me though so that is a little upsetting but am excited can't wait to see the little ones most will be VT's though. they just finished spawning a little while ago. wish me luck with them. i also plan to sell them but i will do pick up i really don't trust mailing but i will think about it

thank you =]] i can't wait for them to hatch =DD. i have some questions if they are right or wrong

right now it looks like he is eating the eggs and i heard he will eat the bad and unfertilized eggs is that right?, and also he isn't adding bubbles to the nest because he is always around it but doesn't add bubbles to it though, what does that mean?

i bought hikari first bites for the fries, is it good??
i also got betta conditioner because on a website it said it has Indian almond leaf extract so it won't have fungus in the eggs is that right??
and my last question is does it take 2-3 days for the fries to hatch??

thanks am going to try to get a photo (he has shredded fins though) and there is a lump of eggs only hasn't really did anything to it though am confused =/?

aren't hikari first bites pellets? pardon me if I'm wrong, but i was under the impression that you were supposed to feed them something like baby brine shrimp or microworms...
btw, strawberry is so cute :)

Hikari is ok...none of my fry ever eat the stuff though. :/
I feed them frozen BBS and have lots of live plants in the tank for infusoria.

The conditioner you don't really need. The male usually will keep the eggs from getting infected with fungus.

And it takes roughly 24-72 (1-3 days) hours for eggs to hatch (at a constant temp of 82F).

EDIT:: Micro worms/ walter worms/ and banana worms are great food for fry (but these cultures need to be started at least a week in advance)

Are there eggs in the nest? Is he mouthing it or just ignoring it completely?
