They fry are doing well, the oldest will be 4 weeks on Friday, and they are growing fast. Hopefully, I have no more than 25 in the tank, that should be an OK number for me to take care of and sell, and that's about how many I can count, however, there are always little ones hiding in the java moss when I'm doing a head count, haha.

When the numbers are greater than 10, it's really hard to know how many you have because they are always darting around. I love watching them.

I agree! 60 bettas are a lot of responsibility. Nice for a *(First Spawn)* ? I'm sorry is this your first spawn?

That last one was my first successful spawn, the one before that ended in the dad freaking out and eating all the eggs ( the freaking out part is an exaggeration). But yes, 60 was definitely a lot more than I had expected but I was able to handle it somehow haha

The most that I have had in a spawn was 93 bettas and they were a handful. They also were sold VERY quick! I was so surprised that people wanted Deltas so bad. Then I wanted to breed VT's again and got about 75 (estimated) and they were sold pretty quick as well.

60 is a really good number to work with. Im happy for you and hope that you have fun with this.

IMO the hardest part about breeding is raising the fry. Its very challenging and takes a lot of patience in a person. You'd also have to have an interest in them because if you're just try to make profit off of them then you're not going very far!
Not you personally Chelsea, but in general.
