You have to have a commitment to them. It's not just a walk in the park, you have to give a LOT of time and money to breeding. Are you willing to do this? Or are you just curious of how it works?

Read the stickies at the top. Most of your questions will be answered there.

There are several stickies at the top of the Breeding Betta Fish forum. Read them, if you still have any questions, I'm sure people will be happy to answer them. Just remember, getting two bettas to breed is the easy part. There is a lot of time and work as well as food and equipment needed if you want to keep the fry alive.

I wouldn't call it so much /hard/ as time consuming,expensive, something you need to pay alot of attention to and defiantly a commitment(lots of water changes/feedings/culling if needed). Breeding shouldn't be done if you're looking to make any profit. The start up cost alone, let alone maintenance, will be more then you could make back.

there are stickys here in the breedingf orum, as well as many sites with information of form you should breed for, color genetic and tail genetics. ^^

its not hard but its hard work, and a lot of it. Water changes every day, multiple feedings and cleaning up after each feeding, finding places to put 100+ bettas. Like people said the initial start up costs are pretty high so if your looking to make a profit don't plan on it. If your looking for a hobby, well we wouldn't suggest that either. You can't just quit if you have a tank full of babies. Plan to have a 2-5 month commitment to these little guys.
