you'll get mostly combtails to one extent or another, and only maybe 5-10% of your spawn will be viably sellable/breedable.

I don't know about the percentage, but you will get solid fins (incl CT geno), some so called comb tail, a lot of uneven web reduction, a few CT (may look even when young but at full grown web reduction will differ).

Oh him . . . I won't comment on him. But you could use your common sense - why do males tend to their eggs? Yes, artificially hatching eggs is possible. But . . . you judge.
What happens to a living creature if it isn't exposed to bacteria/parasites - no or low immune system

I'm not saying his methods are wrong. I'm just saying it's not the "best in the world". If he could produce 700 or more bettas (not fry) from one spawn, only then will I acknowledge his greatness.

What about Buckets is it better to raise the fry in a big bucket rather then in a tank

That is up to you.. some say they do better when they can't see outside their tanks, but then again many use tanks with no trouble.

I personally rather be able to see my fry as they grow, so I got tanks to make it easier on me. If a pair is skittish or needs some privacy I have some small dark blankets that are thin that I can cover up the tank with and just peek in if need be.

Buckets are cheaper, and if you are going to do massive breeding with a bunch of fish, then that may be a good alternative just because it's cheaper. But if you are only doing a couple spawns at a time, then tanks look nice.. and you can use them as regular tanks down the road if you ever wish to stop breeding.
