Besides, you're not following his advice, you're using your best judgement as a breeder to maximize your fry despite having the male eat the eggs. Nothing wrong with that

Should have free swimmers today from the gold platinum and marble pair.

I'm pulling and reconditioning every one again. Attempting in two weeks.

So you have two successful embraces? How many pairs did you spawn or attempt to spawn?

OK, maybe this is a stupid question, MrV, but this sounds like a good way to get some questions answered since you're about to be swimming (pun intended) in baby fishies. But, what do you guys do with all the all these little guys?????

I mean, if even 50 of the fry make it to "market age" I'm guessing you can only sell the very best on AquaBid so that would still leave, what, 25 or so? I mean I guess some folks from this and other forums would want some too, but does that leave you with 0?

I'm in NO way trying to start a fuss, and I'm not attacking anyone, I honestly want to know! I've been assuming that you must have some sort of agreement with a LFS? In my town there's only big box stores (Petsmart, Petco, etc) who I assume have rules in place and wouldn't be able to take any even if you gave them to the store for free.

I admit, I've been sitting here the last few days trying to figure out if it's cruel to put a divider into one of my 5 gallons to make more room (meaning is it cruel to the boy who's already gotten used to 5 gallons of space?) so I can have room for some of these beautiful fish that are being born on this list.

Oh well, I'm honestly just curious. Nobody take offense, please.

Hahaha! Sparky no one will get upset over a question! xD
I assume that V would just sell all of them on AB. They really don't have to be the "best", because some people just want great looking fish as pets. I'm sure he's going to have to cull quite a few as well, so that will lessen the numbers.
Personally, I wouldn't sell to any LFS, unless they properly care for their bettas and get decent sales on them. I don't want my fish sitting in tiny cups on shelves, never getting water changes, for months on end. :/

I end up with small spawns so sometimes I just keep the spawns in community tanks :) However this one spawn is in high demand on one of my Facebook groups lol.

I only had one good spawn. I only have two live fry from the whites. I pulled everyone else and I'm reconditioning them for another attempt. Only one out of five attempts were successful this time...
