Star crossed lovers.....

So 3 days ago, I felt as if my male Dumbo(EE) & Hera (possible veiltail:( female) could share some tank space, while I cleaned tanks. Hes in a 20 gallon long tank. Stocked wit artificial bamboo and various live plants. They did the normal hide n seek. Hes not very aggressive at all. So I continued cleaning tanks....

Long story short...im a granny of many free swimmers now. Im so surprised they survived bcuz they spawned Without a bubble nest...high water level, no microworms.(but plenty of mosquito larvae and brine shrimp starter)

Ill update soon after I load my pics. So nervous about this possible veiltail trait Hera may carry, shes wayy to fast and young for me to ID. but im sure its VT. Im curious to see the results. Ive always stayed away from breeding VT. so this will be interesting

Lesson learned.

I hate 3rd shift...hmph

Wow! This spawn is such a drastic difference from most of us here...lol. Pretty much everyone struggles with spawning while you got one out of nowhere. Either way, congrats! :D
Keep us updated with the babies' progress!

Hahaha. Congratulations on the little 'uns. Even if they were a complete surprise. I'm interested to see how they progress.

This will be my 3 spawn . My first was HMxHM. all was well till a massive wind storm came threw and knocked power out too long to keep it warm. :( My second was very successfull . CTxCT. I have a few pics on my albums. I was freaking out bcuz there was no nest for them. And the tank was full. But I can coumt 35+ :) I work 3rd shift so its hard for me to stay on top of updating daily. But I have 2 videos on my facebook if anyone wants to see. Pm me for my FB.
Gotta clock back in . But tomorrows my friday. Ill be updating as much as possible!

Sorry you lost your first one. Sounds like things are going well. Never heard of anyone having an 'oops' spawn.

Im sure we will have about 35+ that i can see. I can guareentee its wayyyyy more than that though. they hide very well in the plants. My last spawn, I ended up with over 68 bettas that lived. Ill be home shortly. Im trying my best to upload some links to my videos, but youtube and Gmail are not being very helpful in obtaining my password ...grr....

This spawn has really caught me off guard. I struggled so much on my last two, with the setup, keeping water clean, etc.... and I thought they would die without a bubblesnest?! Ive always heard eggs will not hatch that stay at the bottom. ALL of them did. even the ones Dumbo overlooked and left under moss balls, heater, corners, etc. Just weird. I guess you cant believe everything on the internet. HOWEVER i would not advise anyone to try to breed without the male having one! and the water level is about 12inches high! should i worry about their labyrinth organ developement?? dont know if this will affect it in some way?
