I do want to listen, that's why I came to this forum in the first place! I'll get a water testing kit, a thermometer and AQ salt as soon as I can. Depending on the results of water testing I'll get appropriate conditioners. I love my bettas and really care about them so don't think that I would hurt them in any way. Thank you guys for worrying so much. :)

By the way, I am a 20 year old male, I live in a small 37 square meters apartment with one female and my air is filtered with cigarette smoke. I change my air... sometimes, by opening a window. I hardly eat any fruit and don't eat very healthy in general. I have a few heaters at my place which helps me get through cold winter nights. I don't have many decorations which sometimes makes me depressed. A joke or two wouldn't hurt after all the serious betta talk. :)

nice :)
well it IS serious XD
i mean you are talking about bring about 200 fish into this world... which means

you will need to prepare atleast 50 jars.
and the minimum a 5 gallon tank with lots of plants...
you will need to culture live foods for the babies
the least of your concern in all this would be heating the room up to atleat 82F
you will probably also need to cull(kill) some fry
you will need to do daily water changes for every fis you Jar...
then you will need to find homes for all these fish...

isnt that serious? lol

oh and I have a friend in serbia XD i think serbians are cool

Yeah, it is serious work. This is my favorite "how to breed bettas" video:

I will probably get everything I need for breeding and breed them after winter so I would take my time and gain more experience with bettas. For now, I will concentrate on them. :)

My male is recovering nicely, but... Is this normal?



The photo was taken at 01:00 AM and I think he was sleeping. He stands perfectly still like that. It just looked weird so that's why I ask...

Yeah, he is normal and healthy, eating, active etc. He usually sleeps on a leaf of the plastic plant near the surface. I'm glad he accepted the plant nicely. I'm gonna go and buy the tap water conditioner now. :) Thanks for replying, I know it had nothing to do with my original thread but I didn't want to open a new one... I kinda made this thread about my bettas in general. xD
