Smile Emerald Marble HM x Superblack HMPK

Here's a new spawn log highlighting Storm and Sabra, pictured below:


Sabra

Storm



From what I've seen, Storm is a pretty aggressive fish. He descends from a superblack line imported from Thailand. He beat the snot out of Sabra, and Sabra returned the punches pretty effectively. As I opened the tank to separate the two, I noticed Sabra was at Storm's side, and Storm was wagging his body seductively. As soon as they noticed me they darted away from one another. So, I replaced the towel over their tank and left a peep hole, and sure enough they resumed spawning. I attempted to get a video of the two without disturbing them, as they are both VERY easily spooked. Sorry for the camera shaking, you should have seen the odd position I was in. LOL.

Three and a half hours later, Sabra was chased away and removed, and Storm remains diligent about building his nest and catching fallen eggs.



His nest is not the biggest at the moment, but he's doing a good job about keeping it intact. :)


More updates to come.

Good luck with that spawn man! The baby bettas are going to be beautiful with these parents...

Which live food do you give to the fry during their growth and whats the size of the tank you will grow them in?

Good luck again!

:D thanks! I'm certainly excited.

I feed them microworms, bbs, infusoria, Walter worms, and vinegar eels. As they turn into adults they will also get brine shrimp, bloodworms and grindal worms. When they reach 3 weeks old, they will be transferred to their 30 gallon growout tank. ;)

Great! I was waiting for you to make a log. It's going to be interesting to see the color combos from the fry.

Good Luck!

I can't wait to see the colors of the fry, either. :D

MrV, heck yes! Maybe you could take one of these guinea pig babies off my hands, too. They're becoming quite a handful. -_-

Pewmew, if any of the daughters look like Sabra I will be sure to send them your way. :P
