New Mustard Gas BiColor Spawn

Ok, so I finally got the lady and the man to do their work. I see lots of eggs in the nest but because I breed my bettas more similar to the Thais, I can't get good photos. I like to give the parents privacy which allows them to focus on each other more than their surroundings.

Pictures of the parents are here: Julius & Pinya

Not sure if you can see the eggs due to having to downsize images but they are clearly visible in the larger images. I'm crossing my fingers for these guys. Dad is doing a good job at keeping watch. Thanks, Lui

If you also notice I use a bin to provide privacy for the pair to spawn and also either no plants or very few fake plants. I always have infusoria growing on the window cills to provide first few hours/days of food for the older babies that will hatch a few hours ahead of the younger siblings. I still offer micro worms once they are free swimming.

OK! so we have Wrigglers! I've been impatiently waiting for these guys to hatch more-so than any other spawn I've had so far! Im pretty excited to see them bouncing around and dad doing such a good job keeping them together. His bubble nest is massive now, over 3 times the size when I first took pictures. Hopefully I can get a show soon without disturbing him.

I hope with the introduction of the female from BasementBettas that the anal fin of Julius will become more uniform to the show standard with this new spawn. Again, keeping my fingers crossed. As I type I see more and more babies hatching an wriggling around. Very excited! Thanks, Lui
