Breeding Questions

Hello! So I have this new desire to breed my first spawn and it won't go away. I plan on doing it, but I'll have to do it once I move officially down to lower Virginia (1 Year). This is because I'm getting a lot of room in the new house (like seriously, one of the bedrooms is a master bedroom with a bathroom and walk-in closet.). So I decided to do my first spawn when I move since I'll be living there for four years (college afterward.-.) and all the space. But since I'm a planner, I'm asking my questions now. I heard you should feed the fry mosquito eggs or something by leaving a bucket of water out, but I don't think I really want to do that xD.

What are the other ways of feeding them? Should you water change or just leave the filter on? (Water change seems a bit hard since they're so tiny) How much would I feed them each? Would a 10g work for spawning? How/when do you know when a male is a male and when you should remove it into a separate tank? IAL works with them right? How often would I need to change the IAL?

Congrats on the new place!

That would be the most inconsistent food source imaginable.

I believe these are ALL answered in the sticky...or anything that comes up in google if you search "betta breeding". And water changes aren't hard at all.

Some take them out when they start to decompose. Some leave them in until they completely decompose. It makes no difference.
