Breeding tips

I understand breeding bettas is difficult and money and time consuming but i am ready to do it i am looking to breed greens, blues, or reds to start. My goal is after a few years of breeding is to breed blacks which have always loved. I know there are stickies and threads with breeding information but i would like to know from your experience a few tips and little things you have found that help a spawn be more succesful.

I've followed what other breeders have done, followed the stickies, and used whatever works for me. Just try what ever method sounds best to you, and if that doesn't work, try another one. After awhile you will know what works best for you.

There is no right or wrong way to breed. You have to learn from others and adjust to your convenience.

I age my water for about 4 weeks or so. Tons of micro critters to feed fry during their first few days.
I don't use anything in my tanks except live plants for the female to hide. I don't use anything floating for the nest - just cover the top where I want the male to nest. During the first week I feed egg yolk but tubifex are always available should they decide to nibble. After 3 days from free swimming, I start adding a small amount of daphnia - hoping they will reproduce and supply fry with newly hatched daphnia.

Something I learned that was helpful was to keep a flash light near by.. It helps to see if there are eggs. At least when you are going through your first spawn. Mine are almost 2 weeks old and I'm still using a flash light sometimes to spot the itty bitty ones. But when daddy is in there try not to use it to much.. you might stress him out.

In my opinion it helps calm the nerves some because you get so anxious about if they are actually there and hoping that everything is going right and being able to see them ALIVE is a big bonus to say so far so good! But who knows.. maybe that's just me?

I know that I always worry and as soon as I get home from work, I always check my fry to make sure they are still OK.
