After a prolonged courtship and a slow first spawning, my biggest F1 Betta brownorum male now has a small nest of eggs in one of the film canisters. The female he spawned with, was his mother, and it was interesting to see the difference in behaviour between her and her son, as opposed to her and the original male.
If these eggs hatch, I'm going to pull the fry once they become free-swimming and raise them in a separate grow-out. I don't often do this with my wilds, but I don't want his effort to go to waste, and I am admittedly curious as to how fry from this particular cross are going to turn out.
Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, I currently keep and breed a number of species from the coccina complex.
