this is my first comeback spawn since vacuum for years from breeding bettas, they are spawned 2 months ago at 8-12-2015, saw eggs at 10-12-2015 and eggs hatched 11-12-2015, free swimming at 13-12-2015, father is being keep inside with fry for about 2 weeks until i put the fry on grow out tank. i am hesitating to post this spawn, but then think maybe it'll be nice to share this , so beware of pics bombing lol!
things with giant spawn is that you will deal with a huge size difference among fry, some will grow super fast, they will triple- quadruple their other sibling size, in my case this disparity put my head in a mess, always made me think everyday when i checked them worrying,why i have so much runts in my spawn ( the fast growing group are about 70+, the other normal growth rate 120+), i never have this occasion on my past experience breeding normal size betta, until then an expert taught me that in a giant spawn you WILL only have a certain amount that grow really fast and big, the other will just like normal betta growth rate, and to see the grow rate of recent hm spawn i have at 1 month age cleared all the confusion about the size disparity for me.
pic of male and female, very sorry for pretty blurred and dark on male because he's on conditioning tank tanned heavily with IAL leaf, i plan to spawn him again soon, and the female just so unphotogenic i crammed my hand while taking her pic lol
