jar is 1 gal. Sits in a tub with the other betta jars with heated water around the jars. Should be around 76-78. Not the ideal conditions.

I also might have to sacrifice my 10 gal to some pink and black convict fry to make space for a blue gene jack Dempsey pair coming if I can sell the fry and cons fast enough. Puttin 2 more bettas into jars.If anyone is interested in cons please do contact me, fry and breeding pair fs.

Once the cons are gone I will be able to get Peanut into his own 5 gal to hopefully let himg row to his full potential

The key to keeping betta in a 1g jar is sanitation. Its good you have it heated and that temp is just fine. Try to turkey baster the waste off bottom every day, it only take 20 seconds per jar. Every week you need 2 x 100% water change. Be very careful the temp is close to the 76-78 they are used to. Add a sprig of hornwart to the jar and a chip of ial. Exercice a jarred fish everyday with 5 minutes of flaring with another fish. Its good for their body and mental health. And whenever possible upgrade to a 5g tank as bigger is better.

Ah yea if you want him to grow definatly up water changes. Your conditions aren't bad but if I kept my fish in jars I would definatly be doing a wc every second day. Mine all have at least 2.5g to themselves and love it.

I don't know a thing about cichlids. Some species are beautiful but I like bettas more XD

How many bettas do you have now?

Im also trying to sell my guppies so i have another 5 gal for my bettas.

My 55 is going to stay to my cichlids as its only use for bettas is a grow out and id preffer to use smaller tanks for grow outs like 30s or 20s

Could it be MW or anything you are feeding? I do not know what they are although for some reason i think i got those once. Cant remember what really happened though.

i would guess they are from what you are feeding but not forsure.

Also Matt, how are the fry do you have pictures of the,? how big are they? and sorry how old are they again? My are going pretty slow i think.

Being a busy High school student athlete my main problem is finding time to meet all odf their requirements, like time for WC in the bettas in the jars. That why I am only able to do 1-2 100% changes per week.

And I do use a turkey baster to suck up waste aswell.

These are way bigger then mw and mw sinks and dies.

Water changes are easy for me. Excluding the fry I do water changes every Thursday and Sunday, two days I have off.
