I have an article I can post for you, I gotta get the link off my phone.

The fry are good, they hang out by the filter a lot because that's where all the food gets stuck, haha.

This site has a lot of good information too on genetics in general

That sounds a lot like when I bred bettas. They always hung out at the filter. Some would get curious and swim over then leave.

Thanks, I was just going to go to that site too. That's crazy! I like that site and Bettatalk.com She had all of the fry stages and what they should look like as well!

What there is an interest in will be sold but If I don't get enough interest I may have to cull them down. I know that you want some and I am keeping you in mind don't worry haha.

UPDATES! And Pictures

Water change day! Woot Woot.
This was their first major water change, about 5 gallons were added to the tank, 2.5 (about) tank out.

The big guys are growing a lot faster than the small ones unfortunately, but the little guys are hanging in there. I think it's a territory thing, the big ones are always by the filter, the smaller ones (with the exception of Big Boy Blue), are usually at the other end hiding in the fake plants and rocks.
Big Boy Blue is the one that is already showing a metallic blue coloration to him, I still have yet to get a good picture of it , I wish I had a better camera, birthday present anyone? Ha. :P

Still have NO live food but the worms are on their way, and they seem to be gobbling up the first bites quite well, a lot better than I expected in fact, however that I know that I lost a lot of the youngest ones due to the food, which is sad, but it still makes my job a lot easier (as far as picking and choosing that is). From the looks of it, I may not have to cull any (with the exception of any deformities), because it looks like a reasonable number of fry in the tank. YAY!!! And their tail fins, :D I'm pleased to say already are looking pretty wide so I'm very hopeful.

Without further adieu, pictures!

\
"Hello! I'm in the center! I'm Tiny!"
This is the smallest one that was out and about, probably because water was being added in his corner of the tank.




I'm such an awful photographer :( But you can at least see some size here!







You can see the spread a bit in the tail.


nom.

Okay, now this one I need a little advice on. I would think it would be ick, but I'm not sure. He does have little white dots on him, he is currently in his own container floating in the tank.

I know this is an awful picture, but it's the best I have, haha.


That's it for now!

Well I think they are very pretty! All of them! And I do see the "darker" ones are so big! I do see a little bit of dark color on the fry in the 4th picture.
