Always love to see the new updated photos of your ecosystems.

Regardless how many shots, your bubble nest photos are really good. I couldn't get any macro photos of my surprise spawn since 87 day old juvie betta built the nest all the way in the back. Would have totally disrupted the nest in order to take photos & he probably would have eaten them all.

Even though I have a 10MP P&S Canon.... I reduced it to a 2MP & for taking photos.

Do you leave the father in the tank or remove once the little ones start to swim on their own?

thank you.
you should be able to control where he builds his nest. use bubble wrap (the small bubble kind). tape it to the side of the tank in one of the front corners, where you have a good view), then put an oak or almond leaf ontop. he will think the bubble wrap is a neglected nest of his, and add to it. works every time.

remove the dad. pulled him out today. the fry no longer benefit from him, so he is just a threat; and source of waste and growth inhibiting hormones.

got some more shots, i always get a little obsessed with new spawns:
