It looks like a pretty decent operation to me...
The rat is awful, but if you have a lot of water outside one is doomed to eventually fall in and drown. All the water looks clean, the size of the individual tanks and bottles seems to be average, and taking the fish out of the water to check them is standard practice even in fish without labyrinths - you see it all the time in goldfish breeding. The tub on the end looked like a good way to separate and check easily.

I am planning a spawn when it is warmer (there is no way to heat the number of smaller tanks that would be needed, but it will be naturally the right temperatures from around May to October) and am collecting similar jars and containers when I spot them for cheap. I will also probably have them outside - high humidity nights that stay above 25C, ah the joys of summer in Asia.

Poor rat. :(

My only problem with it is that some of the juveniles looked a bit unhealthy. I saw some torn fins and very dead-looking females too.

The actual breeding set-up doesn't look too bad to me.

Life.

I have a sneaking suspicion that if it was him there would have been a LOT more foul language involved?

Any other breeders a little jealous of this set up? A cool wooden room, naturally warm with IAL and large containers for all the fish? :) The rat sucks and the juvies in that one bottle look sad, but otherwise I think it looks typical like others have said. I want a fishroom so bad! Considering getting a 2 bedroom so I can have one :)

There was a lot foul language in how he responded to me.
My summary wasn't even the half he said to me.

I thought Thaitybettas was US based, though?

He is. And he spawns in 5 gal. painting tubs from walmart. xD

Just because I don't type with candy and rainbows doesn't mean I'm being mean.
My opinions are based on research and experience. Ask for help!
