Wow your camera is pretty good! Love the male's colors and it looks like he is doing a great job. The fry seem to be very calm and sweet. I'd love to see this spawns colors and variations. Why do they keep you on a constant cliff hanger?!

Great job so far!

Never had issues with fungus but the male had a huge thick nest and there were a lot of eggs. Some of them weren't in the water so they never hatched and went bad.
I removed the male this morning right before work and I was a little worried because I couldn't supervise him to make sure he was alright.
He's doing great and enjoying his quiet time and hearty meals.

Fry are all over the place and sooo cute. I haven't started them on BBS but will tomorrow or Wednesday. They are currently eating infusoria and microworms.
I uploaded another video for you! Please ignore the TV in the background... was catching up with my Once Upon a Time episodes

And here's a couple of pictures.

They are super small... pictures make them look bigger
Here's a couple of pictures using dime so you can get a good idea of their size.

I am sooooo jealous! I have bettas from the same spawn, and I haven't had much luck yet. I've been conditioning them again, and hope to try again either this weekend or next.
Great pictures by the way.

Thank you!
I'm hoping this spawn survives... I've been quite nervous about their wellbeing for some reason. Maybe because it's been a while and I really want to raise this spawn... idk.
I'll do my best and see how things turn out... hopefully I'll have lots of beautiful fish in a few months.

I hope so as well! I can't wait for them either.

So how has the dad been doing?

Thanks!
Dad's all good... I think he's really enjoying his return to normalcy.
So is the mom... she's eating up like crazy and getting fatter every day.
I'm going to keep them in a conditioning food/water schedule in case I end up having to repeat the spawn.

I was rushing this morning when I set up my brine shrimp hatchery and forgot to place it in the heated tank... duh! So my bbs aren't ready. If they aren't hatched tonight my poor fishies are going to have to eat worms and NLS again.
