Glad to hear that you improved your plans. Although I am still against your plan, I am glad you are doing what you can to make it work. As for all of the people who are attacking me for what I said, I am sorry if I offended any of you but am not sorry for putting the good of the fish first. I will not "yell" at him anymore but will give advice where possible. Sorry!

I have to say that I read on one of your other threads a post saying Matt was being ignorant and I have met Matt in real life he is a member of the Alberta betta club and I think of him as a friend. As far as I know Matt he is a person willing to learn very friendly and someone who loves their fish. When you said he was ignorant I have to say I was willing to argue with that. Matt is a friend and I will stick up for him, why because he is the only guy I know who is his age and a crazy fish lover lol
Saody you plan was wrong it has improved but still could be better. No adult fish should be will the fry as they produce a hormone that stunts growth. Your "all natural" idea is not amazing as these are domestic fish not wilds, they have different needs although the same spiciest. I also think you should buy another ten gal because I personally think if you can not provide the best for your fish then breed and still provide the best for your fish you should not bred. I would get another ten gal and divide it for your pairs house so you don't bred your fish then need to stick them in jars after their work.
You conditioning was wrong you were letting the female into the males side of the tank for hours then taking her away. In his home tank he would not be ready to breed as the conditions are not right. He could have killed her.
You should have the spawn tank in a 10 gal (this is what most people use) filled with 4 inches of water and some live plants for infursia and shelter for the fry and the pair.
A big rubber bin works great as a grow out and saves money.
I would have IAL in all the tanks.
I apologize for lashing ou at you but what you were doing before was very wrong. Make sure you have homes for the fry as much as you think people will fall in love with them like you did you must remember it will be hard find people like you and it Might be likely that the fry end up in a pet store that will sell the fish to people who don't know what they are doing and might kill them in the end.
Once again I apologize for lashing out at you, I am a very easy person to get along with and am willing to answer any questions.

I accept your apologies. Everything you mentioned above I have already wrote in one of these threads that I made, and how I intend to do it, so I think you haven't read that one, and it's okay. All the commotion we caused has led this to be one question on many threads and that doesn't work well. I am glad we are at peace, and sorry myself if I offended anybody. I will be more than happy to listen to your advice on any questions I might have with the spawning. Myates is already helping me greatly in my other thread, so I would be thankful if you would choose to help as well. I believe you are nice people, I am nice myself, but misunderstandings on forums can really go tough... It was really bothering me, I hope I'm in your good books again! :)

Here's the thread:

Or this one:

I'm not sure which ones you followed.

And I'll do my best to get in your good books! :)

I'm glad everyone apologized and getting along now. I understand how Matt feels. We all want what's best for the fish. Now that we've gotten through this we can move on.
