7 Week betta fry
7 week betta fry. Coloration's getting stronger by the day, finnage's getting fuller. I've since stop feeding them live tubifex worms, almost killed them all with a bad batch of worms the other day. The water turned super cloudy overnight and the fry were all clustered at the bottom of the tanks, swimming lethargy. Did a 90% water change immediately and gave a really strong dosage of anti-fungus and external bacteria medicine with a strong dosage of ketapang extract. They regain their strength within 24 hours. So now I'm feeding them flake food, frozen bloodworms and frozen mysis shrimps. No more live food for them.
I've been jarring the better ones and the more aggressive ones. It's still hard to tell females from males. I can only assume which is which. Those that are flaring constantly and has beard at their gills are presumed to be males, so i jar those. Broken fins seemed to be reducing in the community tank. So far so good. Enjoy!
