HMPK Marble (giant geno) x HMPK Dragon Scale Marble

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

warning ,images heavy,these are their fry at almost 2 months old,will bomb more pics of best individual maybe 2 more weeks as fins will develop more, i expect a lot of marbling by then, since some already start to show it, i already jarred a couple of troublemakers , had so many male in this spawn , probably at 60 :40 split between males and females

most of the fry still not jarred, i am pushing their growth because seller from which i bought the male tell me the father has giant geno , so i want to see if they can hit 4cm BO before this month ends, they are now 80 days old.

change the water frequently now and their get 2-3 times meal everyday from pellets to live foods , i will perhaps jar the male soon, i spot a male with badly torn anal when i change the water this morning, luckily only one, because i put so many whole IAL leaves inside so they are unlikely to really fight inside.

glad to see many heavily opaque dragon scale inherited from their mother by these fry, they show promising color and form for future work

Dont worry yours will marble soon , i read this breeder in my local post, he put IAL inside to induce the marbling soon, from what i see in my 4 spawns of marble, they start marbling at 1.5 month age
