sorry for the lack of updates lately, gotta big test coming up so haven't had much time to take pics. Almost filled up my 40 gallon fully now, the fries are still doing awesome, I'm surprised it is going so smoothly and haven't seen any dead fries at all :) They are still growing and doing okay. Some are showing the black lace on their fins like their daddy, and some had a little bit red on their tails. They mostly all have golden rimmed eyes :) veryy cool! Pictures will come after the test on wednesday, I put 5 guppy babies in there (same size as them) since I read somewhere on this forum it might help teach baby betta eat dry food. For now they are still eating BBS and microworms. I crushed some attison's betta pellets and some of the bigger fries showed some interest.


oh yea, forgot to mention, there's this one particular fry, it ALWAYs swims around and greet me when I come to watch them. the way it greets me is it swims from right to left right to left right to left staring at me whole time I am there watching them. It happened 3 days in the roll now, I think it is the same fry since the body shape and the eye, but who knows? may be different one, but still very funny :D

Got my indian almond tree today :) only 7 inches tall right now but I love it to death XD

Anywho, update with you guys soon!

Thats great! I cant wait to see them when they start getting their color in.

I think many of the more observant breeders always seem to notice just one fry that gives more attention than the rest. I usually get a couple and end resulting in one that still continues.

Interesting how the marble pattern will develop in them.

They look really nice. Though it might be that you are watching them every second and cant really see the change. Try taking a picture everyday for 4-5 days and compare sizes. You might see some changes.

If you still feel like you're not seeing as much growth as you think/would like to, do larger water changes to get rid of the stunting hormone faster. And if then you still dont see much of any difference, divide them into growout tubs/tanks. They looked a bit crammed in that tank. Try to get some 5 gallon buckets or some plastic tubs from walmart. They work GREAT for growouts.

I still think you're doing an amazing job! Keep it up!:)

thanks so much for the encouragement bettalover :) yea I watch them a lot, that may be why I don't see the changes... They look cram bc they are all in a corner where I dropped food :) The picture only showed about 1/8th of the tank bc they are all bunched up there, the other 7/8th of the tanks are empty bc there's no food lol... I think I'll do more water changes at the weekend now, been doing 20 gallon changes every day, I think the 40gallon is filled up to 30gallon now ~_~ I am growing muscles

You should be seeing much more growth in that case. Food? Maybe it's time crushed flakes and pellets were added?
