    HM spawn - success at last!

    Post by siriusbettas on Wed Aug 26, 2009 5:55 pm

    Yaaay success!!! after 4 unsuccessful attempts at breeding from a few of my males since feb/March time, Frank (HM butterfly) & Lulu (HM) have finally got it together and produced 32 fry about a week ago. This is only my 3rd spawn so am over the moon and just wanted to share the news

    I will update in a few weeks to let you all know how things are going.

    Had a look at that pair, very nice. Also had a look at the site. I've fell in love with Paul. He is a stunning betta !

    Good luck with the fry!

    Pictures of Babies at 4 weeks on my site now

    http://siriusbettas.webs.com/upandcoming.htm

    have lost about half of them Sad
    I am not sure why as I have done everything the same as the last 2 spawns and only lost 3 babies in total out of those???

    It often happens in the first few weeks. Could be caused by fungus, water fouling too quick with uneaten food etc.

    One thing I have noticed though is that mysterious fry losses seem to occur more often on the weather changes, coming into spring and coming into autumn. I know it shouldn't really make any difference in artifically heated and lidded tanks indoors but it's an observation I've had over the years. I always get the biggest spawn success rates with those hatched mid spring and mid winter for some strange reason.

    Hopefully the rest will thrive now hun and it was just natures way of getting rid of the weakest. Keep us updated hun
