Dragon Spawn Log - My first time!

I have been wanting to breed bettas for a while now. I had originally intended to have my first spawn over the summer but life got in the way. Finally, I have the time and the energy to ensure that the parents and their fry get the attention they deserve.

My female is a black and blue-green (depending on the light) halfmoon dragon. She's just an absolutely stunning fish! She was bought locally and I've had her for about a week. She was condtioned and the breeders and I have continued to condition her. She's EXPLODING WITH EGGS! She was housed next to one of my non-breeding boys and he and she firted non-stop. When she released eggs yesterday at dinner time, I moved her to a more secluded spot... don't want any accidental fry! Good to see that she is ready and willing though.

I am getting two breeding quality males tonight. The first is a red copper dragon PK, who is my first choice to breed. The second is a black and white double tail marble.

My spawning tank will be set up tonight - I've got everything ready to go, I just need to add water and the java moss.

Food for the fry is taken care of as well.

I'm super excited! It will probably be another week until I put the male and female together - I want to make sure both of them are in perfect shape for breeding.

I will add pictures of the lovely lady and the two new boys tonight.

The fry will be avaliable for sale as well. I am in Ontario, Canada so if you are in Canada and are interested, do let me know.

I got my new males last night. *swoon* THEY ARE STUNNING. I am beyond happy with both of them. The woman I bought from really did the best job in find the perfect fish for me.

LOTS of pics ahead!

The plakat male is a wee bit smaller than the female (but she is VERY full of eggs)... do you think this will pose a problem?

If you asked last year, I would have answered NO. But lately my smaller males can't fertilize the eggs of bigger and fat females.

But yours look normal (slim and healthy) so they shouldn't have any problems.
