thanks guys.

fed some atisons betta starter today. this batch of fry is actually accepting it (seems to be hit or miss, had some eat it, some never eat it). im glad about this, since i will be gone for 10 days in a few weeks, so this way i can have some atisons in feeder for em in addition to whenever i can manage to get my roommates to give em microworms.

Nice. Do you have to remove the fry?

well you cant keep the parents together, so generally you put them into a tank for raising the fry. then when they spawn remove the dam. then when the fry are free swimming remove the sire.

sure. but its way to early for me to start selling em; be patient.

some pics of the fish, and jungle of moss that makes counting them impossible:







they are moving around more now, so please excuse the blurriness.

Re: Markos Mustard Gas Halfmoon Bettas

Nice. I know. Lol i have been searching for months for the right betta i want and your male has the prettiest color scheme i have seen stateside. Buying from overseas through aquabid scares me.

the fry are being fed bbs now, so they have bulging orange bellies.




ive also been adding water for the past few days, so the tank is now 2/3 full. plan to fill it by the end of the week.

I love the mustard gas color. I am interested in how your fry will turn out with the dragon scales. I miss my mustard gas HPK (wife named him Wilbur). He was my first fish.
