Super Black HMPK

Wow!! released them and there was a lot of nipping right away, but came back after 30 minutes of being worried and as a first time breeder I was curious. To my surprise they started spawning!!! So fast! I thought I would have to wait at least 3 days like most people. Here's a photo of the father and mother and their eggs, they are still spawning at this moment!! But I wanted to snap some shots.

Hopefully I can keep the frys alive! I'll keep you guys updated and I hope you guys enjoy this journey with me and hopefully help my newbie self out. Thanks!

Edit: I should probably say I bought this pair from Vietnam, but the breeder doesn't remember what generation they are in... but I guess this will be f2 assuming I need a complicated melano and/or black lace gene. I'm still not familiar with genetics, I just want to breed.

really nice, glad you got a very nice pair and not breeding pet store bettas like how i started, looking forwards to this spawn log, solid colors are some of my favorites especially super blacks and super reds.

Wow very nice. As mention Rick, you start with the right pair. I guess most of us started with petstore pairs that does not give us the best result. Not impossible but less chances because you do not know the exact age, health, conditions and line.

For better results make sure that water is no more than 3 or 4 inches deep. If is more than that will be more difficult for the male taking care of the eggs and fry and also is more difficult for the fry to breath air.

I have high success with low shallow water level. Don't get me wrong. I am a noob, i have less than 20 pairs breaded and learning every day.

Good Luck and enjoy !!

Bad news... my microworm culture is infested with fruit fly larvaes.... I do have vinegar eels that I just set up today. I made sure to completely cover the openings with a piece of toilet paper and rubber band. The mw got infested cause I poked a hole on the bottle cap. There was a lot of mw... sadly I will have to reorder a new culture. They did produce fairly fast. Only took 2 days and I had more than enough from both containers.

The father is still taking care of the eggs, the nest is humongous. I'm expecting them to hatch tomorrow.

The female is currently healing. Seems like her dorsal fins might not heal to its original state, but she's still gorgeous and healthy.

I had the same issues of Fruit fly larvae in my white worms culture. They are harmful to the white worms.
I cant wait to see your results.

Happy to announce that they hatched today. Super hard to get photos since male decided to put the nest far into the back and away from me. Haha he blocked so much shots too, wouldn't let me take any photos.

Didn't have time to post anything last night, about 95% free swimming this morning took the male out. feed them some vinegar eels. Don't know how much I should be feeding since it's harder to see than microworms. MW supposed to arrive today, but not arriving until Monday.

For my next breeding i will have infusoria ready since looks like banana worms are still too large for them in the first week. Many die starving i guess.
