You should put a copy of that in the Breeding DIY thread, too. For those that aren't following your spawn...this looks neat.

Really? Maybe, after I give it another few days of trial to make sure that there aren't unforeseen consequences with using it; I wouldn't want to put up a DIY for something that would end up harming other people's fry...

Right now it seems to work, though. They're still spending most of their time in the water column instead of on the bottom, and there's still lots and lots of floating infusoria concentrated inside of the bottle and even settled on the bottom.

Haha sorry about being so far away! I had to wait for him to check on the other side of the tank to even get close enough for details on the babies...I'm turning into betta paparazzi.

He's calmed down about roping them in; earlier today when they were just starting to make a break from the nest he was not having it. Venla and Wild Card's spawns both started swimming very early, but Venla keeps his nest ready just in case they need to come hide under it.

Have you seen different temperament or development in a fish that has been tended by the father so closely?

This is actually my first spawn--well, second technically. I have four fish in the tank on their second week from Venla and Wild Card's first time when they didn't know how to wrap properly. I've yet to see how my group turns out as adults, but from everything that I've read from other, more experienced breeders, if the father wants to tend and stays with the fry after they become free swimming, the offspring that survive (daddy culls unhealthy fry so you don't have to later on) are healthier and better behavior-wise, and if a male from that spawn is used to breed, there's a much higher chance of getting another good dad.
