Thanks. My little guy is 1 week old today. He's such a cutie, I love watching him hunt the microworms on the side of his cup. I also gave him one of my nano moss balls. He likes to lay on it, I think he sleeps on it like a bed. I'll try to get a pic but when I get near he likes to start looking for food. He's been getting a 100% water change every day (really easy in his little cup). I'd love to put him in the tank but I'm afraid I'll loose him and never find him again, so until he gets a bit bigger he'll live in his cup.

He's probably safer that way.

So another week down and he's still kicking it. He definitely got a tail fin now, cute little round thing. He's easily double is original size all the way around. Definitely had a little round belly, which I keep stuffed! I've resorted to calling him lucky. I let him out of his little cup too. He likes swimming all over the place. The only other thing in the 5 gallon tank is a snail so he's a happy camper!

So I finally got him to eat something other than microworms, lol. I tried the frozen BBS but no interest but this morning he decided he liked the hikari newborn bites. It's a first step to getting him to eat other things.

Just out of curiosity, why are you removing the fry from the nest, along with the male?

It's the cup method of artificial hatching. I have an egg/fry eater for a male.

I see. Sorry to hear. =/ Well CONGRATS on your success, even if it's one fry, it sure beats a male with a belly full of fry. xD Maybe you can flick him on the nose whenever he eats a baby next time.

Yeaaah. That'll teach him. =D

(joking, of course.)

Hmm, some bettas just have hearing problems. ;)

I swear my black HMPK hears what I say to him, though. He's currently taking care of a clutch of his own, and after he spat a mouthful back into the nest, he layed on a nearby leaf. I watched him lounge for a couple minutes then muttered "get off your butt you lazy bum, you've got kids to look after." I SWEAR I saw him "sigh" at me then he swooped off the plant and went back to tending his fry.

Sometimes the bond we have with our fish is just indescribable. xD
