    Its so nice having it back...i felt so lost without it :-)

    Theres about 20 in the tricoloured spawn, about 10 in Cas2 spawn(profile betta) and the copper DThm spawn hatched last night and there are too many to count. But hes acting like a good dad and collecting the ones who fall and placing them back in the nest. And thankfully he has re built the nest...i must of just been looking when he was having a tea break.

    These spawns are all their first spawns, so in a way in not counting on the numbers being great. The royal blue hm who spawn with the copper she is the only betta out of all of them who has previously spawned.

    they hatched on the 15th May, so about 1.5months old. They are a very weak and slow growing spawn. Only 7 survived. But i still have faith in them that they will still turn into little gems :-)

    I agree about the diaries, it's great to see how everyone is doing Smile Especially since your spawn is a few days ahead of mine.

    I have been using the knowledge part of your website recently Dawn, it's extremely well constructed and very informative so thank you Smile

    The raising fry page seems to end half way through a sentence. Perhaps a detailed page on setting up the breeding tank?

    Thank you both so much for pointing out the raising fries page I never realised i hadnt finished it. But today I have....ive gone on to talk about transfering to a growout tank and water changes. Also a couple of links so you can purchase Golden apple snails and matured grindal worm cultures. Check it out and let me know what you think.

    I also realised that all the articles i have on there are about breeding and not actually about housing and looking after them, so i am currently working on that. Then I will do one about setting up a spawning tank.

    Thank you both again
