I always love reading your spawn logs, Hrutan. They're so informative and just plain awesome.

Cygnus is looking great, how is he feeling?

And I agree with Schmoo, your spawn logs are highly educational :D

She's gorgeous! I'm a sucker for yellows :o

I'm going to have to keep an eye on these guys! Hopefully you'll get some really nice yellows and oranges, but considering how pretty the parents are, I'm sure the fry will look fantastic :D

Cygnus is feeling better. He seems to have made a full recovery from his bout of SBD, and I am grateful that I chose to gamble on him at the pet shop.

It took a full week for him to get off his fins and start swimming. Since he was pooping, I fed him but kept him on a half-ration diet, and otherwise treated it like a bacterial infection - frequent water changes, and a slightly elevated water temperature. The improvement was gradual, but distinct. I suspect he was actually ill rather than suffering from overeating as a fry.

The 2.5 worked very well. Neither fish suffered any damage, which suggests that getting torn up by breeding is more of a personality conflict than a space constraint. I filled the tank to just above the heater (about 3 to 3.5 inches), floated IAL in the tank, and then left Nimbus in her cup in the tank and went to work. Some time during the day, she jumped out and they spawned.

I need to know about all your spawns. I want my next betta to be from you, even if it is a "special care" betta. Your spawns are gorgeous.
