Me too! I found a bunch of dried oak leaves and put them into the tank as well as all of my other Betta's tanks and I also moved them into a climate controlled room with a plant grow light over head for good infusoria growth. I am really pulling out all the stops for this spawn

New video of the spawn. The father is doing such a good job. I have put oak leaves in the water and the tannins and begun to leak out coloring the water. All of the spawn are staying in the nest tail down and doing a very good job at staying in the nest and not failing down. I believe this is a sign of a strong spawn as my last spawn was the opposite where most of them couldn't stay in the nest and had to be picked up by the father constantly.

Thanks! She is a super sweet girl. It was her first spawn too.
The fry are still hanging in the nest and daddy just sits there directly underneath keeping a close watch on the nest. If even one fry begins to fall he rushes up to put him back up in the nest. I have never seen such a dedicated father.

So update on the spawn, I think I have 100 or more fry . Many of them are already eating BBS. They seem healthy and full of spunk . I have been doing partial water changes by siphoning out all of the debris at the bottom of the tank and then adding filtered aged water. I have a plant light hanging from above to promote the growth of inforusia for the fry. I have high hopes for this spawn as they really seam to be doing very well.

So I bought a 10 gallon tank to move my spawn into. There are so many fry, and they are all eating BBS and doing very well.There may even be up to 200 fry
I swear every time I feed them and I watch them all start to eat my heart just swells with pride at their progress. I really enjoy breeding Betta and I hope I have what it takes to breed show quality winners

Here is some new video of the spawn after I moved them into the ten gallon. I have not added all the water yet because I don't want to mess with the balance of the water. What I have been doing is siphoning out the bottom in a 32 ounce glass. Then I replace the 32 ounces with clean water and then add an additional 32 ounces. I repeat this process everyday until I fill up the tank. Then I do %20 water changes everyday till I add a filter. The fry are doing excellent and almost all of them are eating BBS. I should get excellent photo's of this spawn due to the glass tank so keep watching for more updates !
