Ok, so after several attempts with 3 different females, we have eggs. Mas had beat the 2 Thailand sisters pretty bad. So the only option left was a tough Turquoise MG cookie from Texas. She was a little beat up but held her own.
Well after a day, I took her out this morning not really expecting any progress. Well low and behold, there are eggs in the nest!!! (Photo)
Mas has been diligently tending to the eggs and keeps moving them around. He is extremely protective and is proving to be an excellent egg incubator.
But the most amazing thing I have to say is that he literally moved plants out of the way, pushed the nest all the way to the back of the tank, and the moved the plants back to block my view!!!
OMG....I have never seen a fish do that before!
Whether or not the eggs hatch remain to be seen but we will soon know....

Way to go Mas. This is great news. He'll make a good father. I really hope the eggs are fertilized. I can't wait for them to hatch.

Ma Betta 04-23-2019 02:32 AM

I can't wait either! I'm so excited....the anticipation is killing me.
Not to mention I have the Red and Black Halfmoon nest in the tank next door. I don't see any eggs though. But we shall see...😳

You really are going to town. I hope the breeding tanks work out and business takes off. local breeders with good stock are hard to find. I wonder though have you seen the pictures of the Asian breeding farms? This would really cause you to move. LOL And put you in a higher tax bracket. LOL

Haha, yes I have seen the farms.... One thing they really have going for them is the warm weather so they can have their stock outside with more room to expand. I unfortunately don't have the luxury of a lot of space and need to keep my operation small but hope to make up for it with Bettas Homegrown with Love...❤️

Well there is the name for your business. :laugh: I know everything will work out for you. I really wonder which female made Mas lucky? It might have been the first girl and him beating up all the others so quickly meant he already had the spawn and was protecting the eggs from the first girl. I'm really excited.

Ma Betta 04-23-2019 02:58 AM

Well, if it wasn't the Texas Turquoise it would have to be the 2nd sister because I removed the nest after the 1st girl. Such a soap Opera! Lmao

I wonder if Mas even knows there has been so many girls and so little time. :BIGhappy:

Ma Betta 04-23-2019 03:03 AM

Oh he knows. He was Speed dating! 😂

The dating was not the only thing he was speedy at. LMAO He doesn't seem to be any worse for wear. I'll bet he is going to need some rest after this, and it will be well deserved.
