Talking Marble dragon HMPK spawn log

This is where I'll be documenting my first ever betta spawn. I will be using the 10 gallon hobbyist method to breed. I plan to feed egg yolk, microworms, bbs, and eventually bloodworms and crushed high protein pelleted food. I will be diving the spawn between two 10 gallon tanks which will be corner sponge filtered with an apple snail and some water sprite and moss. Both fish are from Korwhord and at my request he has been conditioning them for breeding already. I plan to keep them separated for a day or two and loading them with frozen foods before attempting to spawn, since I'm worried about stress from shipping. Has anyone directly spawned a recent shipment and have some experience they'd like to share?

I chose these for their bright colors, well developed rays in their caudal fins, and marbling. The male has different colored "eyelids" and the female has different colored eyes. I love the males yellow stomach as well.

This is the male:





And this is the female:





I will be posting tons of updates, photos, and possibly questions, although my huge word document of gathered information will be my first resource.

Congrats Creat! Can't wait to see some babies, the parents are gorgeous. Marbles are probably my favorite color :) I did have a pair breed the day after they arrived, which was an accident really (they really liked one another and female jumped the barrier), but the 160+ fry are doing very well 3 weeks later and both parents are just fine so it probably depends on how they handle shipping. If they are already being conditioned then it shouldn't be much of a problem but most people tend to give their new bettas at least a weeks rest after stresses like shipping before they breed them. Can't wait for some pics!
