Well finally I have some fry from my Betta persephone. These have been breeding at least once a month for me since I got them about a year ago but the eggs either never hatched when I removed the nest or the male ate them when I left the nest in the tank. I recently started filtering my water through a bucket of peat so I reckon that done the trick. Absolutely over the moon. Fingers crossed I can raise most of them to adults

It must be so satisfying for you to have fry after a year of trying. Well done.

It's amazing how they manage to survive at all in the wild given their size and rate of development, well done Mr. Betta!!
