Oh oh! Creat, last silly question for the day (because I should go sleep lol!)
Once I release the girl do I watch them till the embrace? Should I keep watch to make sure they're ok constantly or every few hours or what?

I just check in every 4 hrs or making sure they havent ripped holes in each other yet. If you doing it at night and the lights are out dont worry so much.

Ok I've released the girl. She's currently backflipped onto the plants and hiding. Zuko is looking or her and fixing his nest.. I've drawn all the curtains and tuned off the light in the tank so its dark but not pitch black.. I hope they figure this out soon! Its painful to see Awesome Sauce getting beaten up. :<

Hope everything goes well for you and your bettas! :) Mine just spawned 2 days ago and my girl has a quater of her tail fin missing.. tore me apart to watch so I decided to sleep most of the time. (Although I was hoping to actually catch them spawing..)

Take lots of pics if you get to see yours! Good luck! :)

I wish I could take pictures! But my male gets distracted whenever I'm around, the silly boy! I'll try though, with some stealth XD
The girl has chunks missing from her anal fin, poor thing has such long fins that they're easy targets D:
Congrats on the spawn! Have the babies hatched yet? :D

Poor girl, at least her fins will grow back though and it will be worth while seeing some fry just like her :)

Not exactly.. they just started falling out of the nest a few hours ago though so could be soon! Were moving onto the 3rd day since the spawn. I didnt even know there were actual eggs until I saw one fall lol! I never saw them spawn and since I didnt see any eggs I assumed there werent any. Talk about a happy surprise!

Lol! Thats awesome! Good thing you didn't clean out the nest or anything like that! My girl is still hiding in the plants. I think their fry will be really cute! Both of them are blue marbles :D

Do you have any pictures of your pair?

Marbles? *drools* I love marbles! I might just have to get some fry from you.. XD

This is Drake the daddy :) a hmpk(still debating the hm part though.. but others told me he is) dragon. In dim light he actually looks green and black but in bright light he is blue with a dark red.

Here is my little girl. She actually turned a dark blue after introducing them to eachother. She is one of thoes that seems to show stress stripes 24/7 except for special occasions (shes the one swimming down lol)

I wish you could ship some to me too.. gah! your pair will make some really pretty fry! No fair :( lol

I just checked on mine about 10 minutes ago, 10 hatched that I have seen so far. Daddy doesnt mind them doing out of the bubble nest as long as they are on the edge of the foam cup where he can keep an eye on them lol He's still waiting for the rest to hatch (shouldnt be many only 2-3 falling out of the nest now)

How is your pair doing?
