Quick update before work. S swimming from both of them. Kisa is now interested in going to the cup instead of hiding, but Yue isn't quite yet. Bubble nest reconstructed after a night of negect, will post pics of original later... it was "special". Slight fin tearing on Kisa.
Kinda, I'm also starting to think Yue needs to get harassed before he wraps. Kisa's also starting to get impatient. Last time I noticed that Kisa would nip at Yue to get him to embrace her. Kinda funny, a guy more interested in foreplay than the girl, lol.
And during the 3 hours that I was bowling, I think we got eggs. at least, he was showing no interest in wrapping, she was hiding again, and he was nest guarding. ....and my boyfriend says he can see grains-of-salt-like-thingies in the nest. So, now to see if any were properly fertilized. I'll post the pre mating nest pics tomorrow and probably upload an edited mating vid or two.
Pulled Yue today. Only able to find 5 fry, but they were free swimming, so the others are probably hiding in the dense floating vegetation. At least, I'm not seeing any on the bottom, so, hoping they are just hiding.
Hope there's a few more, though five isn't bad, could've been worse. I've also heard it's not uncommon for first time betta parents to have small spawns. Looking forward to seeing what colors and markings you end up with.
