Thank you for the love, Tpocicat, Gloria and Dramaqueen. ^_^
The fry are still very tiny compared to what they should be at 11 weeks +. At 2 months, most betta fry should be reaching adult size already but mine are only like, 1/3 of their parents' size. ^^; Oh, my mini, ventral-less bettas. Still love them though.
Colour-wise, I've got 3 of them with the striking blue/red fins from dad, many more with mum's turquoise sheen. Interestingly, there are also 3 pinkish white ones with purple-red tails. xD They are still growing, so I suppose the colours will continue to change. At the moment, I'm loving the variety of colours swimming around in my sorority. xD
So far I can only confirm that 6 of them are boys (out of 35) from the length of their anal fins and feable bubble-nesting attempts, haha..the rest either looks female or are still too small to tell. ^^; From the 6, I've only jarred 1 for flaring. He's not the biggest of the lot, but he's definitely a mini version of dad. He's got the longest fins and CT spikes compared to his siblings. ^^
I recorded a video of them yesterday when I fed them after their water change:
Lighting is not great, but you can more or less make out the variety. The 15 fry in the main tank are the biggest and the gluttons. The rest are separated into smaller 1/2g containers according to their feeding habits and appetites. The container with the red lid are saddest bunch...they're the skinniest, and refuse to eat anything else except BBS. Some also have dislocated jaws- even so, and since they're still make an effort to eat and survive, I'm not culling them any time soon.
Hope you enjoyed the very few updates so far. Feel free to ask if you're curious about anything. :)
Wishing you all a Happy New Year 2012! :)))
