Alpha and Echo Spawn log

This is actually my third time breeding but the first two was a fail.
My first spawn was from my pastel HM and dragon HMPK and the second was a different pair, blue CT and black orchid HM. Both males ate all the eggs....

Third times a charm xD This time the male didn't eat the eggs in the first day.
I reconditioned the pastel HM and red dragon HMPK. This pair were less aggressive than my others since both bettas came out w/ fins intact unlike the others.

The male! dun dun duuun...


HM pastel grizzled female from Basementbettas.


For some reason he didn't make the nest under the cup that was in there.


Before my bettas spawned I always thought the eggs would be in the bubbles but they're just in-between them.


Alpha moved all the eggs away from the wall so I couldn't get more close-ups of them. I got two frys that were on the wall though.



They're still hanging from the nest but hopefully by tomorrow they will all be free swimming so I can take Alpha out.

I hope some of them turns out like the female. Her parents are pretty.
Pictures are from Basementbettas


Today most of the frys are horizontal. I'm going to leave the dad in there for couple more hours before taking him out.

Oh wow the parents are pretty. Did you have to use something special to get a good picture of the eggs? I've never seen a close up of that..

My sister has a Canon 60D camera w/ a macro lens. The nest was right against the aquarium wall so it was easier. The camera also has a video option so I'm going to try record the frys!

I told my sister she's got lucky since her boyfriend bought it for her and then a month later they broke up.

I couldn't record them in a group but I recorded a few that got away from the nest and a close up of the dad at 3:57! In video mode the camera doesn't auto focus so I needed to do it by hand.

Here's the link

She is super lucky, sorry to hear they broke up though. So cool that you could get a close up oh him! Even cooler that you could catch some fry on video too!

Wow the parent of that female is beautiful. The fry will be extremely beautiful, considering that the pair is so pretty.
