I know, right? Sadly, I can't get the smallest of the fry to let me take a picture of them. They hide as soon as anyone looks in the tank.

That bites. My female had trust issues when I got her, but being only 2 months old and away from her sisters at the time was understandable. She came around, now she eats bloodworms off my finger tip.

Any particular colors or markings you're hoping for with this spawn?

I'm hoping to get some marbles and butterflies out of my attempt.

Not particularly. I just really liked the twos colorings, especially Kisa's, and personalities. Both are very mild mannered, curious, and friendly(ish, for a betta). If anything, a pastel or yellow would be awesome. Although, thinking about it, I'd be interested in seeing if I could get a non traditional Cambodian outta the pair.

That'd be cool. My bettas have mild temperements so I'm hoping it'll be passed on to their fry. One perk for setting up sororities, community tanks and breeding. Some bettas flare at the drop of a dime, others don't even make eye contact with the fish next to them.

All of mine flare (including the females), but the only one I've had a problem with where tank mates were concerned was Ha'ri. Notorious shrimp killer, and the one time a tetra snuck into her side, she blinded him. I don't think she'll work out in a community tank at all, but I'll try her in a breeder first and see if she calms down. She'll probably end up in my grow tank (when I buy one) [really want to buy one of those "farm tanks" where you can grow house plants on top and have the roots help filter the water, and use it to grow cat grass and cat nip]

Wow. My bettas do flare but not as much.

I had read some bettas were actually bred to be extremely aggressive but since fish fights have been outlawed in some places, many people now breed bettas strictly for show or the pet market. I've seen videos of Thai breeders on youtube, they have probably hundreds of fish with various colors, markings and fins.

Years ago, veiltails were the only ones available in pet stores. Now halfmoons and others are available.

The Petco I get dog food from had some betta fry in this week and they were so cute! One of them was white and red with butterfly markings, there was a veiltail female that was a sort of indigo blue. I'm assuming she was probably six weeks old. Overall, a nice fish...

It's crazy that they are selling them that young, but I agree with the speculation that it's mostly trying to make a buck off of culls. Although, the two I have appear to be growing into very healthy young fish (if the double tail would just let me know his gender, it would be perfect). And I've recently been noticing an increase in variety of tail types (although, half of them are mislabeled) and colors becoming available at the chain stores.

30 day update

Okay, sorry I haven't been doing regular updates everyone . Working outside in this heat has really been kicking my tail. 30 days in, and I'm starting to see color!! A lot of them are showing red fins, at least 7 traditional Cambodians. Body coloring wise, it's about a 50/50 split between dark bodied, and white/pale. A couple still don't have fin colorings, 2 seem to have occasional slight SBD. They all have started to recognize that lid up means food or cleaning. And they have all adjusted to frozen food, and the bigger ones are actually starting to prefer the pellets (NLS growth). I have counted up to 20 during feedings, so potential of double counts. And, during the entire time, only found 2 dead ones, and those were during the first 10 days. 3 are very small, but runts will happen.

I'll take pictures tomorrow or Sunday, give everyone a look at them
