The pair of betta simplex I recieved from Brianjim a few weeks ago spawned last night/this morning. I'm so excited! I had to share with everyone here as these are my first bettas, and this is all so new and exciting to me lol I'm literally ready to burst im so happy. So fins and fingers crossed that he holds the whole time and i soon have some babies!

The female may eat some of the fry if left in. I usually move my males after 5-6 days, others move the females. 10-12 days he should release. They can eat newly hatched bbs/microworms right away. I start adding ground up flakes and golden pearls after the first week. I They eat just about anything. I have 4 males holding right now too.

Thank you! Brian I was trying to feed just the lady today and the male swooped out and grabbed a blood worm. he still appears to be holding though, any thoughts on this?
