I was watching some youtube videos and came across a series by a guy who claims to be the best breeder in the world, and honestly he seems legit. He was saying to absolutely not breed in a glass tank for many reasons, such as the bettas getting distracted, hiding in the corners of the tank, and the plastic insulating heat better than glass.
Rude jerk who can't pronounce or spell Betta. He also uses minimal hiding places for the fish to spawn them quicker which isn't a safe way. He isn't right and doesn't have TRUE evidence backing it up half of the time. He isn't as great as he claims to be, use a bucket, tank, or whatever you choose. I've used all and the small plastic clear tubs that have corners have worked most efficiently for me.
Oh yeah, we'll it seems like him. Lol, he's the ONLY breeder I can think of that breed in 5 gallon buckets, calls themselves the best breeder in the world, and one with a YouTube Chanel... He can talk, talk, talk, talk, talk as long as he wants but his methods aren't the best IMO. Other people agree
Yes that was his name. Sorry, I didn't mean to flare up tempers, I was just wondering what everyone thought of his methods. I tend to be a bit on the naieve side, so I was just wondering if this guy is legitament. I've also read a teensy bit about the Thailand breeding method, which seems to contrast greatly with what I've read about a hobbiest's breeding methods. I know different things will work for different people, and I just like to read into different ways of doing things. How do you guys breed your bettas?
Depends in the day, how I feel and experience with the individual pair... HMPK's typically get larger breeding tanks, dragons get glass ones so I can monitor aggression better, heavily finned pairs get smaller tanks. Proven pairs get all of the above. Lol, just set up some in a tub and already spawning after realesed 30 minutes ago. My other pair was in a 5 gal and spawned within 30 seconds of being realesed. My Proven fish spawn very fast
his methods aren't really that bad... its his attitude that really has earned him a bad reputation on this site...
but dont worry! everyone has their own methods :) heres mine: 10 gallon tank filled halfway, sponge filter, heater set to 82, lots of floating plants and IAL
