Tiger Koi HMPK ♂ + Orange Marble Black Copper HM ♀

spawning "success" today.

i didnt know what name to give this beautiful male before, but i have a good idea now... his name is Dinkus, here's what makes Dinkus special:
1) rather than build a bubblenest under the leaves i provided him, he decides to build without it.
2) rather than build a bubblenest under open space, he decides to build in a thicket (which is rather leading to complications with trying to spawn)
3) he's rather brutish with the female (even during spawning) as opposed to the other male last time. he likes to slap her and knock eggs out of the nest...
4) eggs spread out all over and below the nest (and he might not be able to access them since they're hidden amongst the plant matter...
5) does not know how to blow eggs into the nest. they keep on falling out.

well... here's to a smaller spawn... if he doesnt eat them all afterwards... what a... dinkus.

photo of spawn in progress... debating whether to switch the male in with the female and letting her take the shift... she's currently removed.

He's all but abandoned the nest. He does not know how to web. Doesn't even try to put them into the nest-- thinks they are fry and can swim up into the nest themselves.... Idiot. I hope the eggs don't go bad.

Hope yours turns out well.

ok hopefully he fertilized them, if he did then they can still hatch...if he isnt doing a good job at keeping them in a nest or cluster maybe u can move him and let them hatch on their own... i have done that before and it worked ...only problem is that the water level in the tank must be 6 inches or less from the bottom of the tank so the babies dont drown

I've heard of that.

Could be worse. At least he's not eating them, found out from one breeder on another site who had a handsome black and white dragon, great colors but he wasn't that great of a parent either so you're not alone, Amphirion.

Hopefully it'll work out. I love Koi bettas, they're so beautiful.

thanks guys.
@bettaboyshiva- yeah, i try to keep my water levels low when breeding, approx 3-4 inches max, saves the male time and energy going up and down.

@tealhoundogg- seriously... how unfortunate; cant always have everything.

Yeah it's sad. Glad that some are hatching.

I have a spawn log as well.

Hope things work out for yours.
