Date of spawn - 22/7/21
Successful hatch..
Started on insuforia/microbes..
Then bbs and various microworm..
Feeding twice a day..
Added daphnia into feeds

No filter..75% water change once a day

I will add pics from spawn time and first week or two at a later date (storage on my phone at this time was full but I did take one or two videos on my sons phone.. so once I can get him so send me the vids I will upload them.. so for now I will just add the ones I have taken on mine after I sorted the storage issue..)
First 6 pics below are of dad...
Water Liquid Plant Azure Fluid
Underwater Plant Feather Beak Marine biology
Liquid Purple Fish Wood Feather
Vertebrate Fin Organism Plant Underwater
Vertebrate Azure Purple World Organism

Plant Underwater Marine invertebrates Fish supply Fish


Pics below are of the mum (albeit with another guy 馃檲 a flirtatious encounter before her meeting with dad.. apologies that its a different Male in background of most of her pics - but they all I have access to for now n thought it a bit OTT to airbrush him out 馃榿).. plus some weeks after they spawned she got into a fight with another female and came off pretty badly from it (didnt think she was going to survive if I'm honest).. slowly nursed her back to health and she is doing good..her cheeky character is starting to reimerge now too.. 馃グ but still a long way to go n she wont ever be the same sadly (and hense me not having more recent pics of her to put up).. I am just glad for the babys before it happened cus she will not be able go in with any others in the future..

Thank u so much 馃槉 I will post some pictures soon.. i have a backlog of pictures to put up tbh they are already 10 weeks old, I'm not sure if I update my log by comment as a reply to my first entry.. once I am certain I will upload some pics/videos (i must be the only person who has had to confirm with admin how to update their own spwan log 馃檲馃し鈥嶁檧锔忦煠︹嶁檧锔忦煒煒)..

I lost my first batch of fry (different parents) at 8 weeks to hydra and was pretty devastated tbh and their dad had become sick and died some weeks later 馃ズ I was hugley attached to him..and I had promised him I'd take care of his babies but before I knew wat was killing them it was too late, a very hard lesson learned 馃ズ

I thought I would log it here one day in their memory, cus he was very special to me and he to begin with he was pretty clueless but he worked tirelessly and endeavored to be a good dad. I actually felt blessed that he showed me on a whole other level of how truly amazing betta fish can be.. 馃挅 wen it's not so raw for me I will share.. but right now I have plenty of babies to keep me busy- and they r truly beautiful 馃グ (obviously biased lol) but I do have more batches i started along side this one and I have to say these r by far the prettiest out of them all, and I'm positive I can see one or two little mini dumbos that look just like their mum 馃馃 I'm excited to see if I'm right and what others thoughts about them are.. (my Hope's is there could be secret dumbo gene on dads side) I be over the moon if it is.. n if not.. I'm honestly just so happy to get this far and they are fighting fit so far 馃(..i have been pretty determined this time after a horrible 1st experience), i am eagerly looking forward now to sharing all of my little joy's on their journey in here...馃槉馃挆
