Talking Trad pk spawn log

My traditional pk pair have bred
Male is a royal blue with red wash...scored him for a cheap price because the shop thought he was a lady.
Theres easily around 100 fry, the male keeps moving the nest around.
Their colour will be nothing special but the reason for this spawn is that there is a general lack of plakats in nz lately and I need plakats since my main pk crew died.

Ill chuck pictures up when I take some

Thanks
Fry are free swimming now so I've removed the father
Heres the dad



Heres the female, the picture is blurry but you get the general idea of her.


Her colour is the same as one of my other girls pictured here. But with less irids on her body

Im most likely going to get blue with a lot of red wash. I have some fish with red loss that I plan on crossing into these guys later on to eliminate the red.

Can a person breed then sell their fry to petsmart or a petstore?

Thanks yeah I particulary like the females finnage, although the photo doesnt show it, her outer caudal rays are relatively long and straight for a trad pk. She has a decent spread too (though not 180),
My favourite part of the male is the small red dot on the dorsal fin...its just so out of place lol and hes always looking for something to flare at. hopefully this aggresion will be in his children.
I love active bettas that flare and show them selves off

The fry are feasting on bbs and egg yolk. I can never keep microworms alive...The only worms i seem to be able to keep alive are parasitic nematodes...yay!
There are so many little orange bellies, I tried taking a picture of them but my camera doesnt believe they are worth focusing on, so the pictures came out as blurry balls floating on the tank...

Bettaguy, a person could try selling fry to the petshops, I dont think they will give much money for them though. But it would be a good way to get rid of too many fish.
