Yes they are. I bought the male at the betta show last October, and I bought the four females she offered on aquabid. I asked her if they were from the same spawn as my male, and when she told me they were, I just had to have them!

She sent me a picture of their parents, but I can't find it anywhere, must have accidentally deleted it. They are gorgeous!

Her bettas are always just simply stunning. I had tried my hand at breeding Thai bettas first and didn't have a single successful spawn! Switched to her bettas and I've had numerous successes... So I understand why you scooped them up!

I've decided not to buy overseas when we have such beautiful bettas available right here in the US.

I admit it! I'm a worrywart! After removing the male, I could only find two babies last night. I know they're really really small, so I figure most of them are in the plants or something, but I can't find them!
I put a mystery snail in there after removing Dad too, try to keep it clean.

Im sure there is nothing to worry about! There will be LOTS of fry in there no doubt, probably just trying to mess with you head :)

Thanks Gloria, you're probably right, I keep reminding myself that when Dad was keeping them all together, there were quite a few, though I can't say how many.

Yeah, well you do have to remember that they are teeny tiny and sometimes it is rather hard to just see them with the naked eye..
I remember when my fry had just hatched, for week I thought I only had about 50/60, then I moved them to the grow out and I had realised at the beginning I had 103. Now I have just under 60 and even now it doesnt really look like i have that many until I start counting lol. and theyre nearly 7 weeks old..
Thats ok tpocicat.. How are the mum and dad going?

Mun is still regrowing her fins...dad took almost her whole anal fin off! Dad seems OK, he's hugging up to his filter right now. He eats good, so I know he's OK too.

I hope when my new camera arrives I'll have better luck finding them through the zoom lens.
