    well, i’ve had my betta patotti for more than 10 months now, they were a good size when i got them. they have spawned several times but each time the male (mouthbrooding) carries the eggs for 5 days then they disappear. well, he went 9 days, so i move him to a smaller tank so he would not get harassed by the females. he was in there from friday to yesterday morning when i went in to look and he had spat the eggs out. about 40 of them

    how long does it take for them to hatch?

    when fully incubated by the male, he holds them for approx 14-16 days, but the info i have suggests if the hardness is to high, the eggs will fail to hatch, so they suggest a hardness (KH) of around 1 and a pH of 5. mine are in KH1 but pH 6.5, so perhaps i need to lower the pH before my next spawn. i’ve removed about 6 fungused eggs/wrigglers this morning, so looking ok at the mo.

    Keith your conditions sound ok to me. I’ve read about these spawning at even higher pH (7+) than yours. Good luck mate!

    yes, i had read that too. although all the eggs i found were the same size and all had tails showing when they were spat out.

    Hi Keith,

    Congrats on the spawn /happy.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”^_^” border=”0″ alt=”happy.gif” /> .

    Hint:You will need more tanks as the juvs are fond of nipping at each other later
