Thanks. I've heard about tetra and fluval. I found out Petco sells the hydor brand which quite a few people use.

Looking at your fish, it'll be interesting to see what colors and markings the fry end up with.

aNother picture of Hera. The lights brighten her up a bit too much. But this is about as good it gets. VT females are still pretty desirable for me in my 55 gallin community tank.if she ends up to be vt, I'm sure they'll be gorgeous! Id still ratherhad the EE female I had my eyes on aquabid but, you can't fight fate lol. Any ideas on her finage?

My female is a veiltail and my male is a Delta, so I'm curious about how that mix will turn out.

Looking at her tail she looks like either a halfmoon or delta. But I could be wrong.

Just out of curiosity, what do you plan to do with the fry?

If all goes as planned, ill keep a couple and the "gimps". I own 25 bettas already now so ,ill freely give The fry to good homes once they are old enough and I'm comfortable with letting them out of my site lol.

I'm taking Dumbo out today, I think he may be snacking on my free swimmers :(

Yikes... don't need that.

Wow, you have 25 bettas?! that's amazing.

I've considered keeping a female from my bettas' spawn and then turn her brothers and sisters over to a fish store once they're old enough to leave home. I think that'll be the hardest thing for me apart from possibly loosing a few along the way.

You can always try asking if a fish store would find homes for your betta fry. They'll usually give a store credit in exchange.

U should keep atleast 1 or two from your stock. Lol id kept all of mine if I had the space. 25 a lot but they all mean a lot to me.

I can't wait for all these fry to be free swimming. Id say half the tank is free swimming and the other fry are twitchers, mainly staying T the bottom. Dumbo still Scoops them up and brings.'em to thd surface so I'm holding out removing Dumbo til my mosquito larvae are treated another day. My brine shrimp still haven't hatched but id say it usually takes a full day anyway.

Here's a pic of some of the fry today

Thanks for the suggestion. I've thought about keeping a female. Sounds like Dumbo is a great Dad.

Cleaning tanks today. All of them. I thought about putting some of my mystery snails in the fry tank?? I've heard others doing so, but never myself. Debris from my plants are coverin the bottom of tank and I don't want any weak bottom dwellers to get stuck/bacteria from it. I'm goung to lower the water level a bit today. Id would start siphoning, but I don't want to risk sucking up the few that could be laying around. I hate Turkey basters. Takes tii ling but I might just have too. But should I toss some snails in?? More pics soon :) I gotta get back to cleaning tanks
