Yup these are from the pet store and they are VT people, hey I got to start some where :D Good luck to you. I'm a supper proud betta mom right now. Even if all of the eggs didn't get squeezed out of her I think I still have plenty.

Squee moment! Walter has an egg stuck to his head! or at least I think its an egg, It wasn't there earlier and its about the size/color of an egg... I wish my camera didn't need to recharge. It's so cute. That and I want a pic of my proud papa

Ok I squeezed enough battery power out to take a few more pics. The first is just of the eggs. Don't ask how I got that good of a picture because I still dont know...lol and the second is of my proud papa, with an egg (I think it broke though) on his head

Congratulations! You did great squeezing a little more power out of your camera. Good pics. Too funny, the egg on his head.

:D I know I love the egg on his head. Is it just me or did they breed really fast? They were done in 4 or 5 hours, from first letting her out and her hiding in the corner. Maybe just a good bout of conditioning? On a side note Velvet's fins are already looking better! The rips on her anal fin seem to have stitched themselves back together overnight. I hadn't even started treating her yet, I just put her back in her old bowl...I plan on giving her some medicated water today once I get home. I put one drop of melafix into a gallon of water, along with conditioner, stress coat, and about a half tsp of aquarium salt.

Seems to me that all spawnings are different. Yes yours was pretty fast. Some take days, and some like yours happen almost right away. Lucky you!

VTs throw interesting color mixes due to their genetics. Maybe you'll start a line of purebred VTs :) I want to but I'm going to focus on my show fish first.

I just got the 20 gal, grow out tank set up. There's a moss ball, three amazon swords and two fake soft plants. I'm going to start at half full and then add a gallon every day by the slow drip method. Walter seems to have gone a little lax on the bubble nest but he still checks it every couple mins so I'm going to leave him alone. When I shine a good light on the nest I still see some eggs so I think I'm good.
