Thanks, Chesherca. It's not too much work, only an hour or two every couple of days.
DramaQueen, I currently keep eleven species of wild bettas. However, the other day I made the decision that I won't be actively breeding wilds any longer, so I'm going to be selling off all my young fish once they are healthy and at a sellable size and just keeping my adults as pets.
Maybe in a year or two I might get back into breeding wild bettas, but for now I want to do more with killifish.
LebronTheBetta, it is yarn. It's a spawning mop I made for them to lay their eggs in. Only java moss is in my fry containers. AUS are one of my favourite species as well. I want to get the chocolate and Kape Lopez strains, but not sure if I am going to have to purchase eggs from a breeder or actual adult pairs.
Got a dozen more eggs from the mop a day or two ago so they are now bubbling away. I have at least 15 AUS fry now and they are doing really well. Someone local is going to sell me some BBS eggs so hopefully I will see an improvement in growth.
Going to try and rig up a better fry raising/egg hatching system today. My current one looks rather ghetto.
