I'm 13 years old, and I want to start breeding betta fish.
I don't have a lot of money, and I love fish. So, I want to start breeding betta fish. I'm willing to make a bit of investment in supplies. I'm going to have a lot of time since its summer.
I think I know how this works. You introduce the female into the tank, seperated from the male. When the male makes his bubble nest, you release the female. If they fight too much, take the female out and seperate her, and try again later. Anyways, the male will embrace the female to release the eggs. They will pick up the eggs together. Then you take them out, and put them in seperate tanks.
Now, what I don't know is how to take care of fry. I heard you can feed them baby brine shrimp eggs. I've found them on Amazon but they're really expensive... I've also heard of a method which involves leaving some grass in a jar on the window sill in the sunlight and harvesting the worms that grow inside!?
Now, what else will I need? I know its going to cost a bit to buy all these tanks, filters and heaters to keep 100 betta fish in my room...
