Betta Macrostoma

Recommended Posts

The male is holding again today

Just got home and his mouth is full

The previous fry are still in the tank with him also

But half has been removed to a separate tank

Just incase

Fingers cross his hold this to full term and In a shorter time frame not 28 day

I have changed the temp to 25 so let see what happens

Good to hear that you have some fry with straight backs! dont give up on the others. As I mentioned in another forum, some PNG blue eyes get bent backs and after a little while of good food and care they become straight.

Good luck with the new Macs, must now be quite and investment for you! Have you got any plans for summer? I have heard if the water isnt cool enough they die off?

Yep summers all sorted

The pair at home is in a room the has reverse cycle Aircon

No direct sun light

So that room stays at a constant temp of 24-25

The new pair is at work also no direct sun light and also has reversed cycle

Aircon also it a constant temp of 24-25

If worst come to worst I'll go buy a cooling fan for each tank

These pair are only 5-6cm

So very small compare to my first pair which are now

10-12cm

P.s the first pair male is still holding is second batch of eggs(fry by now)

Day 21 and the male mac at home is still holding

I guess raising the temp 1 degrees From 24 to 25 doesnt do much with

Making the male releasing the fry earlier

Last lot it took him 2 days to releases
