Betta testing

Testostering, more accurately. For the past 2+ months my male betta has been building bubble nests, but the female is still alive and doesn't look any more battered than usual for a sole female sharing a 5 gallon tank with a healthy male. And I hadn't seen them mate, and had not seen any actual eggs. But the other night something caught my eye so I got down on the carpet to be eye level with the tank, and spotted two babies. One of them significantly larger than the other, which means there were at least two sets of hatchings. And I see there are more eggs on the fringes of the tank, so maybe more babies coming. There are a lot of plants, both live and plastic, for babies to hide in. Anyhow, nice surprise.
