Betta Fish Fry Are Hatching Here

Betta Father Watching Over Betta Fry as They Hatch

This Betta fish father takes his paternal role seriously as he cares for his Betta babies when they hatch.

Like a devoted nanny 'he' gingerly picks up a tiny, white fry and carefully places Nemo
back into the nest after the Betta newborn fry falls away just after hatching.

The Betta babies are newly hatched but amazingly they have no trouble swimming back into their nest.

If you observe the nest carefully. you can see some Betta tiny tails peeping out of the eggs.
