Breeding bettas for the first time, advice and help needed.
I want to buy two quality bettas (1 male 1 female) online. I plan on breeding two pretty double tails i saw.
I would breed my bettas but they are pet store bettas, i don't know their backgrounds or age, haha.
The female would go in my betta sorority and the male will have another tank set up for him.
Here are my questions:
Can the fry be raised on egg yolk or frozen foods? I'm uncomfortable with growing, hatching or feeding live foods but ill get frozen foods if i can.
How long until the bettas are old enough to be sold? I know a family owned petstore who will take them.
How long until they have to be separated?
Can I breed them in a 5.5 gallon? Ill buy another 10 gallon f i have to, recently i was given a used one but I have to check for leaks first.
I watched a tutorial and it said when introducing the male and female have lots of plants in the tank, do i take them out when they are done mating?
I don't plan on breeding them for a couple more weeks till my balloon molly fry are grown.
Any info or help is apprenticed.
