kids having plenty of infusoria to eat. dense colonies of them aggregating on the sides of the tank--at this point, im going to bypass the microworms and go straight into bbs. no need to foul up the water if i dont have to.

Oh, it's quiet on my end too.

My female though has been doing the submissive pose lately...so I'll probably be putting her and Cole together again this week.

Sounds like the fry are doing ok. What about the parents?

That's good.

I've heard of some males going through an 'empty nest syndrome' type of rut.

Depends on how heavily invested the father was. My other male fell into a rut for a few days, but again, white worms make everyone happy. Dinkus was a bit of a ditz so he wasn't as devastated.

True. I'm hoping my male doesn't take the 'joys of parenthood' lightly.

Some bettas seem to pull the plug and others...not so much. I read about one breeder who kept the male in the tank with the fry after they started swimming on their own. Didn't eat them or anything but that's probably a rare case.

Male needs to be well fed in that case-- a large tank also helps. Any fry he eats usually is due to culling.
