Pewmew your getting a bit panic-y lol. He means that in a good way. Basically meaning that its so good for them and really helps them grow fast. Dom should have know better than to put that with no kind of emotion at the end because of the interpretation. I have heard him say this before with a positive tone so I know what he means, but others would take it negative and get worried lol.

I'll add in some floating plants tomorrow.
they been eating the attison pro crush pellets (: super awesome
I have never heard of fry at this age starting to flare. Yeah the floating plants should slow the aggression down because the ones that aren't flaring yet will hid in the plants.

Pictures soon I'm hoping;)

I have wild bettas growing out that are around the size of your bettas and they flare and posture all the time. Two what I assume are males had a 5 minute flaring session yesterday. I did notice there was no nipping or violence, which I assume would be the case with your lot.

Your fry are looking good. Then again fry always look so squishable. Have your guys grown in ventrals yet? I can't tell from the picture. That's the one stage of development that always worries me. I hate the look of bettas with no ventrals.

there was some nippings but only with 2 or 3 of them outta all of them, but gonna clean out some floating plants and float them to see if that'll distract them more (:

I been watching them like a hawk everyday and almost all of them have the little ventrals since beginning of week 3, they are so tiny but you can see them :) I was worry at first since I feed them lots of microworms and BBS and I know ppl say they Might not have ventrals... I havn't seen a betta with no ventrals yet :( but I hope yours turns out great

Well the way that bettas develop no ventrals is because of them being bottom dwellers and always swimming so pressed against the "floor" of the aquarium. So what I do is feed them tiny portions to keep them off the floor.

Yes MrV is Dom which is short for Dominnic. Its spelled differently.

So how does this TREE work? How do the leaves turn brown? Is it like any other old tree where the leaves dry out and "die"?

I've bred females that ended up without ventrals (fed micros for too long) but their fry ended up perfectly fine since I quickly learned to cut down my microworm feedings.

Yeah, I've read somewhere that microworms are possibly a cause of this.

What exactly do the Ventrals do besides help the fish stop instantly?

I see no real problem with them though...
