Its Raining EGGS!!!(spawn log#2) pics & vids

Some of you might know from previous posts that I had a little trouble with premature egg drop in the vase a few days ago, so I took OFL's advice and seperated them and mass fed them live frozen foods for the next 3 days and tried again, it was a success! Seems like she still had a ton left or developed a whole bunch more! :)

Here's a video of them spawning

Awesome and congrats......

And fyi....females have unripe eggs in them their whole life once they reach breeding age....and will either drop and eat them or not or reabsorb the eggs on a regular basis....you know when they do by the look of their poop...it will look somewhat whitish/creamy for a day or so

And she is a good female too....she helped to pick up eggs and spit them in the nest...good girl.....lol....

Beautiful Bettas....look forward to following your spawn-log and watching the fry grow and develop into awesome Bettas.....

How many spawn have you got going now......

I have about 90 thriving fry left from my first spawn..their batch was literally about 500 - 600 eggs.. the sad part was I was new at betta breeding and when i spawned them for the first time I had kept the water temperature at 80 and after about 24 - 36 hours i came to check on them and the room was extremely hot because i had shutted off ventilation to that room.. i freaked out.. and checked the tank, it was at 88 degrees F.. i thought that was too hot for them... i saw some dangling at the bubblenest and alot laying still at the bottom of the tank... i thought they were dead.... and didnt wanted them to spoil the water so i netted them all out... later to my horror i realized they weren't dead but was just waiting for their dad to help them up.. i was left with about 200 - 300 fry after that :( err i was so stupid -_- i should've just left it alone.. lesson learned i guess...

Such a beautiful pair you have. Thanks for sharing the video. I had no idea the male wraps the female so many times.

Looking forward to seeing the progress.
