Uploading a video now. Just got a new male in so the first few minuets are about him but the rest is how to breed properly and my methods.

lol I agree. I'm actually going to give another go at spawning next week. This spawn was pretty much a bust but it was a first for me and my fishies. Maybe round two will be better

Lots and lots of good and correct ways to successfully spawn this species and rear fry....its finding what works for you, your breeders and what you have on hand......

I use a more natural method in 5-10gal full to the top with water, soil based heavy planted tanks, shrimp (RCS), common snails added, no added filtration, heater at 80F, water lettuce or floating Oak leaf for the nest site, lights off at night, I condition the breeders and feed fry with live foods...I use the live plants for the natural partition-meaning that both are added to the spawning tank at the same time. Usually I will have spawn the same day I add the breeders-sometimes I remove the female and sometimes I leave her to get mutli spawns and harvest the eggs to artificial hatch, some I may use 2 females, some I may leave the male long term...... it varies based on the goal of the spawn

Fry get moved to larger tanks as they grow-I separate by size
Water changes on the fry in soil based NPT's are different than a standard setup- daily 25% for the first week after free swimming then weekly for 2 weeks-then monthly......

My method is not for everyone and not recommend to use for your first spawn....but once you have a few successful spawn....and you have an established NPT's....try it...you will be amazed at how easy it can be-how healthy the fry...etc......

Happy spawning....

I use the bare bottom method. Spawning tank is 6.6 gal. with sponge filter, java moss, heater set at 80-85*. I use betta spa rather than the leaves because I cut a stirofoam cup in half for the bubble nest.
As soon as the fry are big enough, I feed microworms, decaps, and Atison's betta starter. My fry don't seem to have a problem eating the "non live" foods. They love the decaps best as a matter of fact.
I move them to a larger tank as they get bigger.
As you can see, we all have our own ways, and what works best for one might not work as well for another. Best of luck.
